The name of TakeOrLeave is truly ironic because there are only two options you have when using it: taking all the security risks to gain supposedly beneficial services, or removing it. Needless to say, we strongly suggest the second option because this advertisement-supported program is as unreliable as they get. MetroConcept and CoinSave are a few clones of this program, but we can assure you that there are hundreds, if not thousands, of other infections just like these ones. All of them were created using the Justplugit engine, and all of them deserve to be deleted. Do you know how to remove TakeOrLeave?

Installrex is a downloader that is responsible for the distribution of TakeOrLeave in many cases. Other downloaders (e.g., Amonetize) could be involved as well, which makes this adware even more confusing. Due to the fact that different parties might be responsible for the distribution of this threat, it is difficult to predict what other infections could be attached to it. So far, our researchers have found EZDownloader,, and Websearch Hijackers to be installed along with TakeOrLeave most frequently. Regardless of how harmless these programs might look, we recommend removing them ASAP.

The most devious thing about TakeOrLeave is its ability to record personal information. The cookies used by this adware could record sensitive information, and, even though there are claims that this data is protected, you should delete TakeOrLeave-related cookies without further delay. If you delete these web cookies, you might notice a decrease in the ads that show up when browsing the web. Unfortunately, it is not enough to remove one component to kill the entire threat, which means that the elimination of web cookies is only a temporary solution. Needless to say, the permanent solution would be the removal of adware.

Removing TakeOrLeave is extremely important because you do not want the ads associated with this ad-supported program flooding your browsers. Unfortunately, these ads can be very attractive, and you might get yourself scammed before you figure it out. Whether it is misleading surveys, fake shopping deals, or bogus installers, anything could be used to make a fool out of you. In order to avoid this, you must delete TakeOrLeave from your Windows operating system and the infected browsers as soon as possible. As you might have guessed already, the removal of this threat is not as simple as it might appear to be at first sight.

Do you want to remove TakeOrLeave manually? This is the option that users consider first, and we are not surprised about this. The sad news is that the manual removal option is not ideal, and not many users know how to perform this task. If you uninstall TakeOrLeave and delete the browser extensions, some components might remain active, and this is not what you want. If you ignore the leftovers, malicious cookies could be installed to spy on you, and other security backdoors could be opened up. Due to this and the further protection of your operating system, we advise installing an automated malware remover, SpyHunter.
