Search.certified-toolbar.com Toolbar Removal Guide

Search.certified-toolbar.com is a browser hijacker that is installed into unsuspecting individuals when they install certain free software packaged with search.certified-toolbar.com. When installed into the victim’s computer, it will also install a Certified Toolbar which will change the victim’s browser homepage as well as their default search engine to search.certified-toolbar.com. Once the toolbar is installed, it will display an assortment of advertisements as well as sponsored links into the results of the individual’s search queries, and may even collect various search terms from the victim.

Because search.certified-toolbar.com is annoying and difficult to remove for the average computer user, you must never continuously click “Next,” “Next,” and so on(this is one of the points we make in our “How to Keep Your Computer Running Its Best” article). Rather, choose the “Custom” option when installing new software, as you will have the choice of installing extra programs attached to the software. By following this best practice, pesky programs such as search.certified-toolbar.com and others will never be automatically installed into your computer again.

When you want to download software that you know is packaged with annoying programs such as search.certified-toolbar.com, we advise that you choose another program that offers the same function but is not packaged with additional programs that will install without your consent.

Inspect the log file to make sure the program isn’t removing any software that you’d like to keep. Chances are, everything is safe to remove. After you’ve inspected and determined everything looks good, go ahead and close the notepad document.

“Download Savings” Adware Removal

“Download Savings” is an adware program that displays a variety of “pop-ups” in your web browser, such as coupons, ads, and sponsored links displayed in a pop-up box when visiting e-commerce sites such as Ebay, Walmart, Amazon, and more. The advertisements will be displayed via a box containing an assortment of coupons and/or underlined keywords, and once clicked, ads will display that state the ad has been brought to you by “Download-Savings.”

Because the “Download Savings” adware is such a nuisance, it is crucial that you install future software by never clicking “Next,” “Next,” (this is one of the points we make in our “How to Keep Your Computer Running Its Best” article). Instead, choose the “Custom” option when you install new software, as you will have the choice of installing extra programs attached to the software. By following this best practice, pesky programs such as “Download Savings” and others will never be automatically installed into your computer again.

However, when you want to download software that you know is packaged with annoying programs such as those mentioned above, we advise that you choose another program that offers the same service but is not packaged with additional programs that will install without your consent.

You Have Been Blocked From Our Website! Virus

The “You have been blocked from our website!” page is a computer virus that blocks access to common websites such as Facebook, Google, YouTube, Amazon, and other mainstream websites.

This is a common technique cyber-criminals use to extort money from users.

If your computer is infected with the You Have Been Blocked From Our Website Virus, you do NOT need to complete a survey. You can continue to the free removal guide we have below.

PriceGong Ads Removal

PriceGong is an adware program that displays ads on Ebay, Amazon, and other websites that you are visiting. The advertisements are shown via boxes that contain coupons that are available or as underlined keywords, and when clicked, will display an ad that informs stating the coupon has been brought to you by PriceGong. An add-on for Internet Explorer, Chrome, and Firefox, it usually automatically installs itself when the victim installs other free programs. PriceGong is notorious for automatically installing itself when users fully install free programs such as Yontoo, FBPhotoZoom, and 1ClickDownload.

BecausePriceGong is so annoying, it is crucial that you install future software by never clicking “Next,” “Next,” (this is one of the points we make in our “How to Keep Your Computer Running Its Best” article).
