What is ILivid?
iLivid is one more browser toolbar that can be installed to most of the browsers. It redirects computer users to iLivid.com despite what website they wanted to visit. Ilivid modifies your browser settings, it expands your bookmark list with various unknown websites that you never included to your favorites and changes your homepage to iLivid.com. Not only it is done without users consent and it is so annoying but it also leads to more serious problems.
Basically, Ilivid attempts to collect information about your activity on the Internet and send it to various marketing companies that need this data for marketing purposes and their personal reasons or straight to computer hackers who can later try to get some profit by using your passwords, data of bank accounts, etc. As you understand, this is violation of your privacy and for this reason iLivid redirect must be removed. Unfortunately, it is not that easy to remove iLivid as you would think first. Most of the toolbars can be removed using uninstall tool that comes provided during the installation. Then it all you need to do it go to Control Panel and remove unwanted program from the programs list. However, the problem is that Ilivid toolbar changes the search provider settings which are not removed through uninstall process. And in some software bundles, the uninstaller does not work properly at all. This causes lots of headaches for PC user.
