Finding the application called Saver on your computer is definitely not a sign of the arrival of the “savior,” but, rather, the arrival of a malware infection. We have labeled this useless application as an ad-supported program, i.e., adware. Most likely you cannot even recall installing this program since it usually penetrates computers in software bundles. However, these bundles can contain a number of malware threats apart from this adware. It is quite possible that you are facing multiple system security threats right now. If you do not act, you may put your virtual security at risk in no time. These infections can expose you to malicious web content -- you may get more infections onto your computer or even get scammed by criminals in all kinds of ways. Many people do not consider adware programs as harmful or dangerous. Still, there are certain risks you should be aware of when it comes to this malware infection. If you want to protect your PC from further infections and issues, you should remove Saver right away.
We cannot say that this useless adware has a working promotional or official website, but we can certainly say that it does have a page on the web where you can download its installer, or, at least, you can try to do so. You can find this page at savey.net. It is possible that the website is temporarily down or not yet up and running for some reason. Nevertheless, if you keep your browsers updated, it is likely that, for example, Google Chrome blocks the download of Saver.exe installer saying “We think it might be a malicious, unwanted, or uncommon file” and “We've found that the website you tried to download the file from has been known to distribute malware.” This most probably would raise the red flag for any security-minded person. That is why you should always keep your drivers, browsers, and all other programs as well up-to-date. Although it is safer to have a security tool running in the background, which could weed out malware attacks and nip them in the bud.
After careful research, we can say that this adware mainly uses bundles to spread over the net. But these bundles usually contain several malicious software installers. That is why the presence of Saver is really bad news. It is possible that you have installed free software lately and that is how you managed to infect your computer with a whole bunch of malware threats. And that is also why it is so important for you to keep away from unfamiliar or questionable file-sharing websites and third-party advertising as well. If you let such a package onto your computer, it will be important to check your computer for other threats after you remove Saver. You can try to manually detect them by opening the list of installed programs in Control Panel and the list of extensions in your browsers. But keep in mind that this way you can only find the more conspicuous infections, such as adware apps, browser hijackers, and potentially unwanted programs. If you want to make sure that all the infections get detected, you should use a professional malware scanner. You can find reliable free scanners on the web if you do proper research. When you have the list of the potential threats, you can either use our website to search for these malware infections and their removal instructions, or use a reliable malware removal tool.
This adware operates through browser extensions, which are installed after this infection sneaks onto your computer. Saver also modifies the Chrome target line, which means that it makes sure that you cannot simply get rid of its extension as it will always be reactivated whenever you restart your Google Chrome browser; no matter how many times you may try to delete it through your browser settings. This is how your target line looks after this adware installs: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --load-extension="C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\FASTExtensions\nfeotgmnpeepdbcklegpcengnhgllhoe."
This application may try to pose as a money-saver, as we can assume by its name, showing you the usual “best deals and offers.” However, we have found that this adware simply shows potentially harmful third-party ads, for example, islim.co.il/mini/1/desktop/?source=foxweb, which seems to be of Israeli origin. Clicking on any of the displayed ads may put your system security at risk since you can never know where you might end up. It is possible to land on infected websites that are run by criminals just by simply clicking on an ad. It is really not worth keeping such a source of threat on your computer no matter how slight that chance may be. Keep in mind that one single click is enough to get scammed by cyber criminals. Therefore, we believe that you should not hesitate to act to remove Saver right now.
If you want to fully eliminate this useless adware, it will be a multi-step process. Unfortunately, the uninstaller of this application does not do a proper job and leaves certain leftovers. But, if you follow our instructions, you should be able to handle this situation even if you are not an experienced computer user. First, you need to locate and run the uninstaller via Control Panel. Second, you need to remove the extra string from the Chrome shortcut target line. Finally, you need to delete the C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\FASTExtensions folder that remains on board, too. But you should not forget about the other potential threats that may still be endangering your operating system. If you do not want to hunt them down manually, one by one, we suggest that you use a decent malware removal application to automatically tackle all the malware infections present. This is also the most efficient way to protect your PC from further malicious attacks.
