Splendor Search

Splendor Search

Splendor Search is another ad-supported program that has replaced such applications as Bronze Aid, Discovery App, High Stairs, Wander Burst, Blazer Deals, Gravity Space, and Jungle Net. Research has shown that all of its files (they can be found in the Splendor Search folder in %PROGRAMFILES% or %PROGRAMFILES(x86)%) are signed by Edge Essence. We are sure that this signature belongs to some kind of company that publishes untrustworthy software. It seems that Splendor Search is not the only product it owns. This adware itself is not an extremely bad program; however, it might still act in an undesirable way, so it would be better to remove it from the system. Specialists at anti-spyware-101.com have noticed that Splendor Search is very similar to adware programs that belong to the SuperWeb family. Luckily, it means that it will be possible to erase Splendor Search via Control Panel too. Read more »

7ev3n Ransomware

7ev3n Ransomware

One of the most feared malware infections are most probably Trojan ransomware programs, such as 7ev3n Ransomware. This Trojan is feared for a good reason. According to our malware specialists at Anti-Spyware-101.com, this ransomware can block your computer so that you cannot launch any executables and it encrypts all your major files at the same time, such as project files, databases, documents, and images as well. Letting this malware on board is a virtual suicide because you may easily lose all your precious files if you do not have a backup on an external HDD or flash drive. When it comes to understanding the damage such a Trojan can do to you and your computer, having security backups start to make a lot of sense. If you do not keep such a copy of your files, there is a good chance that you will never use them again when this infection strikes. Reports show that even if you decide to pay the unusually high ransom fee, it cannot be guaranteed that you will actually get the decryption key, i.e., the private key, which is stored on a secret remote server.

E-Buyer

E-Buyer

You may be lead to believe that E-Buyer is a shopping assistant that will help you save money by showing the best available deals. This is untrue, however, and we suggest removing it because it is nothing more than a low-grade ad-supported application. Its job is not to improve your online shopping experience, but make money for whoever owns it. We think that it is safe to say that this application is unreliable because the content it advertises may not always be legitimate because we d not know where its advertising partners come from. In fact, in the worst case scenario, your computer can become severely infected with Trojan-type malware. Please continue reading if you want to know more. Read more »

Dealnj

Dealnj

Dealnj advertises itself as a “light-weight browser extension” that finds the best deals and shows them for users when they shop at online stores. The program claims that it does that for only one reason – to save money for you; however, we do not think that it is true because ad-supported programs are primarily created to drive traffic to different web pages and generate money for the publisher. Dealnj supports newer versions of Windows OS and even MAC OS X, Linux, and Chrome OS. Therefore, we are sure that it is targeted at thousands of computer users. As Dealnj claims to be an amazing shopping helper, there are many users who download and install this piece of software because they believe its promises blindly. Of course, Dealnj might enter systems without asking permission as well. Either way, it would be best to remove Dealnj from the system. Luckily, Dealnj will disappear from your PC after you find and eliminate all the extensions it adds to the browsers. Before you do that, read through this article. Read more »

As Search.myrecipesxp.com is closely associated with the My Recipes XP extension, the only way to get rid of it is to remove that extension completely. Read more »
