ILivid - How to remove?

 

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.

Ilivid virus gets inside through various sharing websites as Rapidshare.com or it can come bundled with other software. If you have recently noticed being redirected to iLivid.com, make sure you remove iLivid from your system immediately. Scan your system with a reputable antispyware tool, for example, spyhunter or Hitman Pro by default. You should also change your search provider to the one you had before getting infected by this annoying application. You might need to replace search providers manually afterwards.

    Ilivid is worse than described above as it overwrites a number of windows dll files – in particular it overwrites msvcr80.dll and msvcr100.dll with 32 bit executeables – which means that if you are running 64 bit windows apps that use the ms visual c++ library – all those 64 bit apps will fail to launch. This in particular affects Lightroom (adobe) as well as Steam installed games.

      Iris: we are not related to Ilivid. The short answer is: they do it for money.

    After downloading and installing a couple of (quite useful) freeware from CNET, I found that the iLivid Download popup kept appearing whenever I accessed my AOL Mail account, my Twitter acct and my Pinterest acct. I searched my computer for “ilivid” and found nothing to uninstall. Finally, I went through all the programs which my Revo free uninstaller turned up. In there, I found something called “Iminent.” I goodled Iminent and found it to be spyware…so I uninstalled IT! Guess what. No more iLived. Iminent is apparently iLivid. Problem solved quickly and simply…once I determined what the problem actually was.

    Every time I opened my chrome browser, ilivid tabs extension gets enabled at startup(even after removal). Home pages, search engines also got modified for IE, firefox, chrome browsers.
    Just now found a simple way to remove this ilivid thing. It’s disguised in controlpanel, under search results toolbar xxxx name.
    Open control panel -> search resutls toolbar .. -> uninstall. This has uninstalled this infamous troubleware. Now its peaceful as before..
