- Annoying Pop-up's
- Shows commercial adverts
- Connects to the internet without permission
Saver looks like a legitimate application that will act in a beneficial way. Judging from the content on its official website savey.net, the application promises users to help them lose weight. This is one of those tactics to lure users into downloading and installing that particular application on the system. In the opinion of the researchers working at pcthreat.com, this is not a very good idea to let that program enter the computer because it is known to be an advertising-supported application (adware). To be more specific, this product of Save Technologies LTD is not going to do anything really beneficial because its primary aim is to display all kinds of ads on a user’s screen. It is very likely that it gets money for this activity, so users should not even expect that Saver will start acting beneficially one day.
Saver adware works on the Windows platform only. It seems that it can infect all the computers with Windows OS on them, and it does not matter at all which version is installed. It has been observed that the file size of Saver adware is approximately 2662.58 KB. The size of the file might differ on the basis of the OS version installed. It is also known that Saver adware is installed in Program Files, so you will definitely find its folder there if this program is really installed and flood your screen with commercial advertisements. Several files that belong to Saver and can help you to recognize that it is really installed are these: Saver.url, IEPluginSetup.msi, Interop.SHDocVw.dll, and System.Data.SQLite.dll. They will disappear after you fully delete Saver from the system. Of course, it might leave some leftovers too, so users have to be cautious.
The only thing that users see after they install Saver on their systems is the presence of commercial ads. We are sure that you will see pop-ups, banners, and coupons. Saver can also show other types of advertisements too because it uses the service of an advertising network in order to provide users with commercials. As Saver users the service of third-parties, it means that the creator of this program does not review these ads that appear on your screen. It simply means that ads linked with bad websites might be injected among those good ones and thus appear on a user’s screen. After users click on such bad advertisements, they are immediately redirected to other websites. As nobody monitors the content of such sites, users can easily infect their systems with malicious software. This is the major thing why it is so risky to keep an advertising-supported application on board. Of course, there are adware programs that show good ads, but we cannot say the same about Saver.
Even though Saver is an advertising-supported application, it will not only display ads, but will do something else. It has been observed that this adware will create add-ons and plugins for all the browsers. In addition, it will change the Target line ("C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --load-extension="C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\FASTExtensions\nfeotgmnpeepdbcklegpcengnhgllhoe") of Google Chrome browser. Our researchers say that it does that in order to be able to load its own extension. As can be seen, this adware programs applies many changes.
Another suspicious thing about Saver is that it comes in a bundle with other applications. It can even attach itself to legitimate software and enter computers together with them. Users initiate the installation of adware themselves, but, of course, they do not know that in most cases. Software bundles can be downloaded from various third-party web pages, torrents, and torrent websites. Thus, you should stop downloading software from these web pages if you do not want to infect your PC with malware.
Saver should disappear from your system after you uninstall it via Control Panel and restore the changes of the Target line. If you still see advertisements after you delete Saver from your system, you should scan it with an automatic malware remover, e.g. SpyHunter. There is a possibility that the major files of Saver are still hidden somewhere on your PC and Saver continues working, i.e. displaying commercial advertisements.
