*Sigh* How can I remove mysafesavings

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I know, I am an idiot.  I wanted to install something, read every line of the installer, blocked like 20 programs, and it still let this crap slip.  For those of you who dont know,  this is a supper toxic program you literally can't un install through windows.  It blocks every website that has information on how to uninstall it.  Malwarebytes hasn't caught it and adwcleaner is running now.  Does anyone know where this is installed so I can delete it or something?

 

For future people with this problem...

REGEDIT> HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\
CurrentVersion\Internet Settings > set ProxySettingsPerUser to 1>

Create :

Name: Security_HKLM_only

Type: REG_DWORD

Value: 1

If you can visit Here this should do it for you(I however couldn't access the site)

Try avast! and or AVG.

 

Though for something that persistent, you should probably reinstall windows.

+1, and use something like ninite.com if the software is included in the list, saves you lots of hassle

Well thank you  guys for the WONDERFUL advice.  Now with my sass out of the way, I have found the exe but I can't because it is always open in the background.  Anyone know how to delete something always open?

That will not help, any decent virus embeds it self throughout your file system and registry.

You need an antivirus program or complete reinstall to get rid of it.

Well I have removed it(and all of it's pop ups) but the changes it made to my internet to not allow me to visit a lot of sites still exists.  Do one of you guys know how to fix this?  Also, I heard on reddit that AVG might help.  Could one of you kind fellows download AVG, pack it in a zip and upload it to google drive or = please.  Thank you :)
