ApplicationUpdater.exe was installed on my system when I installed YouTube Downloader Toolbar. After removing YouTube Downloader Toolbar through Control Panel, both YouTube Downloader Toolbar and Application Updater were removed successfully. Your results may vary.

Scheint zu Spigot (spyware) zu gehören, da sich hinter pdfforge bzw. Dealio eben Spigot verbirgt. Quelle siehe Link.

Some of the info above is inaccurate. The YTD Toolbar is not YouTube Downloader, it is from Spigot and is malware.
addware with keylogger and browser hijack capabilities
