Tuvaro

Postby cw4cam » Thu Oct 17, 2013 8:31 am

A pesky program is on my computer and I can't get rid of it. I have ran Microsoft security essentials and Malware bytes. It goes by the name of Tuvaro. Any help?

Tried uninstalling it in SAFE MODE, or running Malwarebytes in SAFE MODE? Afterwards, run CC.. It is not Malware per se, but not a good program..

And don't forget to disable the "restore" feature of Windows before removal.. or the OS will faithfully undo your efforts on the next normal boot!
After ensuring the nuisance is totally removed, then turn the "restore" feature back on.

Some additional info on ridding a system of this nuisance.

I found the perp. It was an add on in firefox. My wife is constantly getting into trouble by not paying attention to what she is doing. I won't ever be fooled by this program again. Thanks guys.
