How to Delete SpeedBit Search
SpeedBit Search is a Google-based search engine. (http www image by mbs from Fotolia.com)

When you install some free software products on your computer such as Download Accelerator Plus, you may find that your Web browser's default search engine is changed if you use the default installation options. SpeedBit Search is a Google affiliate, and the makers of Download Accelerator Plus and some other programs receive a small amount of money when people use this search engine. It is completely optional, however. Remove the SpeedBit Search from your Web browser if you prefer another search engine.
