While dealing with this program we’re presented with a tool that claims to be able to either block or authorize cookies from any given domain with a simple click. The problem is that this extension is installed without the user’s approval, therefore victims are only aware of it when it’s too late. As is always the case with this kind of program, the extension is but the visible part of this malware, often presented as useful and harmless, which is exactly the opposite of what we can say of the hidden part. The truth here is that this is a spyware that will analyze and collect data about everything you do on-line; first to present you with countless ads plus to profit from selling your data. What is even worse is that such data might be as personal as usernames and passwords from sites like Facebook but also from your bank website.

It’s really hard to manually remove the cookies on off extension, mainly because it’s usually installed with administrative rights. Fortunately there are several free and automatic tools that will enable you to remove it.

In the future make sure not to trust any hacks you found online nor free programs, and in the case of free programs always customize their install processes.

Below you’ll find a removal procedure to get rid of cookies on off:

Remove Super-Search.org https://www.how-to-remove.com/super-search-org/ https://www.how-to-remove.com/super-search-org/#respond Thu, 22 Jun 2017 16:24:29 +0000 https://www.how-to-remove.com/?p=12378 Super-Search.org is a browser hijacker, in other words a program that modifies certain web browser settings in order to achieve a change in browsing behavior and response. Among the settings changed we usually find the default homepage and default search engine, with no possibility of rolling back those changes.

Super-Search.org is also classified as a Search Hijacker because all searches performed by the user are quietly redirected towards specific websites, usually malicious sites that will collect your personal data.

Super-Search.org is last but not least considered a Homepage Hijacker, an infection specialized on changing the default homepage without the user’s approval so other pages are used, usually malicious ones that will collect private data.

The best way to avoid this kind of issue is to be aware of what you do while you install new programs. Browser Hijackers are distributed through all sorts of new software, free or not, which is why is so easy to fall into the trap of not de-selecting cases that will give you nothing but problems. Besides taking care of what you do and read everything presented on installers, another way to protect yourself from PUP’s is to install a proper antivirus that includes PUP’s detection such as Malwarebytes AntiMalware.

Remove Surf-Live.com https://www.how-to-remove.com/surf-live-com/ https://www.how-to-remove.com/surf-live-com/#respond Tue, 20 Jun 2017 19:43:54 +0000 https://www.how-to-remove.com/?p=12374 Surf-Live.com is a search engine very similar to Google. This search engine’s visual look is indeed a lot like the one Google uses, and the results presented when used can be really similar too.

However, it’s important that you realize that Surf-Live.com is actually a browser hijacker. This term encloses all programs that change the default homepage and/or default search engine in all web browsers installed in a computer at the time of the infection; of course the user is never warned of this before the change takes place. But, why would they want to do this if it’s nothing but a Google’s look alike search engine? Well… the thing is that among those legitimate results shown when used, Surf-Live.com will insert sponsored links that if clicked increase their income.

The difference between an ad and a legitimate search result are quite hard to tell in this kind of search engines, increasing the probability of you clicking an ad without realizing it. These ads can show news, products or services that could expose you to further and more dangerous problems for your computer. That’s why we strongly advice you to remove Surf-Live.com as soon as you realize you’ve been infected.

Remove guruofsearch.com https://www.how-to-remove.com/guruofsearch-com/ https://www.how-to-remove.com/guruofsearch-com/#respond Mon, 19 Jun 2017 19:08:02 +0000 https://www.how-to-remove.com/?p=12370 Browser hijackers such as guruofsearch.com modify both the default homepage and default search engine in your web browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera, Safari, Edge…).

This reconfiguration is done in such a way that to roll back to your own settings becomes impossible. Some hijackers change the Windows registry to make sure that their own settings will be set on place every time the computer is restarted. Others prefer to remove from the main menu the “Tools” options, making it impossible to set new values. Hijacking browsers is a technique used mainly to increase advertising incomes and to improve ratings in search engines for specific websites. guruofsearch.com can be very sturdy and hard to remove without the right tools.

Even though guruofsearch.com presents itself as an efficient search engine that will return fast results, the truth is that many links of those offered will be sponsored and might be more dangerous than what most users dare to believe. guruofsearch.com releases itself from any responsibility on what links offered could do. What this means is that you could end up visiting infected websites. Those websites are a real threat because just by visiting them your computer could be infected. This cyber-criminals could also entice you to click on links where they can steal your personal data. If you don’t remove guruofsearch.com quickly your exposing yourself to all sorts of dangers.

Remove Microsoft Official Support https://www.how-to-remove.com/microsoft-official-support/ https://www.how-to-remove.com/microsoft-official-support/#respond Mon, 05 Jun 2017 16:53:52 +0000 https://www.how-to-remove.com/?p=12348 “Tech scams”, or more clearly scams related to fake tech support services are currently on the rise. In the beginning we dealt with telephone campaigns where someone posed as Microsoft Official Support, nowadays those scams have evolved to include websites that make browsing practically impossible where alert messages are showed about an alleged infection present in your computer; the goal behind this is tricking you into calling a number that poses as Microsoft where you’ll be convinced to buy (at an outrageous price) a disinfection tool.

All scams considered “tech scams” base their actions into convincing a potential victim that there’s a grave threat in his/her devices, mostly computers. The person on the phone, poses as a real and qualified tech agent, who will quickly suggest an urgent intervention in order to fix the problem.

One of the most known tech scams is working under the name Microsoft Official Support.

These scams operate in one of two ways:

  • Telephone call: where you receive an unexpected call, where someone poses as a Microsoft tech agent to explain you about an infection found in your computer;
  • Fake website: in this case you’ll be shown over and over a web page with a message saying your computer is infected; this website is the result of a malicious ad, usually linked to streaming or illegal downloads websites. If you’re victim of this kind of scam your computer is most likely infected with an adware.
