conduit is the license holder of utorrent. this is the toolbar for ie or whatever. it is from utorrent, a program that allows you to download/upload, seed whatever, torrent files. i say neutral on this because, the app/file its self is not dangerous, (as i know of), but you always run a risk of downloading very bad things when downloading peer to peer files, (torrents). flashget is better for this process anyway i think, but differnt bittorrent websites sometimes require you to use a certain torrent dl program like utorrent

It installed without my permission while I was connected to a public network at a hotel. My virus protection would crash if I tried to run a scan of the folder and I started getting a lot more spam messages. I deleted it manually from my program files folder, common files folder, appdata\ folders, and any mention of it from my browser folders. It hasn't returned and I've blocked it with my virus protection software.

Best practices for resolving ConduitEngine issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with ConduitEngine. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using cleanmgr and sfc /scannow, uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using msconfig) and enabling Windows' Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off doing a repair of your installation, or in the case of Windows 8, executing the DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.

To help you analyze the ConduitEngine.dll process on your computer, the following programs have proven to be helpful: Security Task Manager displays all running Windows tasks, including embedded hidden processes, such as keyboard and browser monitoring or Autostart entries.
