Hello friends, I’m back. I know it’s been a bit, but I just helped a friend get rid of this crappy piece of adware and I wanted to share it here.
SaveNewAppz is a browser hijacker that claims to be a tool that blocks unwanted ads on your computer. However, it in itself is unwanted malware. It easily creeps into your system when you download software without you knowledge or often even your consent.
It evades anti-virus and anti-adware software while it allows malicious software to slip onto your computer, that can potentially damage your system. This is evidenced by the annoying pop-ups you will begin to see when infected. Hopefully I can help you remove savenewappz and move on with your life.
SaveNewAppz has the potential to corrupt any web browsers you have installed on your system including Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla FireFox.
SaveNewAppz can be difficult to locate, isolate, and remove if you don’t know where to look for it, but highlighted below are the instructions for removing it quite easily if you follow each step carefully.
1. You need to perform a forced uninstall to rid your system of SaveNewAppz. This can be achieved with a free program that affords you access to uninstall programs which have no program in your control panel with which to uninstall software. Revo Uninstaller can be downloaded at Revouninstaller.com. Its easy and simple to use. It will show hidden programs in your control panel and allow you access to remove programs even if they have no uninstaller program attached to it.
2. Now you need to remove the SaveNewAppz Extension or Add-on from your browser. Depending on which browser you are using, you need to access extensions or add-ons from your toolbar. In Mozilla Firefox, you can do this by choosing customize and ad-ons from your toolbar in the top right corner of your screen. Simply search for the SaveNewAppz add-on or extension and remove it. If there are any other strange or foreign add-ons or extension in your menu, remove them as well for safe measure.
3. Clean your browser and system thoroughly for any residual files and registry entries left over from SaveNewAppz from with a programs such as ADW Cleaner. It’s free and can be downloaded online at Majorgeeks.com or Bleepingcomputer.com. It will remove files left over that you may have missed and can clean your registry, removing it of all unsafe remnants of the program from your system.
4. Reboot your system. For safe measure you may want to run a registry sweep again to make sure you have gotten rid of all the files associated with SaveNewAppz. CCleaner offers free deep cleaning registry software that will get the job done. You can run it whenever your system is sluggish and needs some fine tuning. CCleaner can be downloaded at Piriform.com for free.
