SaveNShare - How to remove?
SaveNShare is an adware program that displays tons of messages on the Internet with coupons and discounts. These messages mainly appear on shopping websites, but you can also notice them on some other popular pages like Facebook or Youtube. It is easy to recognize these messages as they say to be brought by SaveNShare.
The program can be added to Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome browsers. At first sight, it seems to be a nice program as it offers various discounts for specific products. However, it can get very annoying. If you click on the ads by SaveNShare you will be rerouted to unknown websites. It both disturbs your work on the Internet and also can infect your system with malware as you never know what websites you are redirected to.
SaveNShare aims to earn money by increasing traffic to the promoted pages and making users click on sponsored links. Additionally, the program records information about your browsing activity, like your browsing history, search queries, etc. This data is useful for marketing and later it can be sold for the third parties.
It is highly recommended to remove SaveNShare as soon as you detect it on your system. Go to Control Panel -> Add and Remove programs list and uninstall it from there. You should also check browser extensions for Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome and remove it from there. If you do not see it listed, you should use antimalware tools like SpyHunter and scan your computer with it. If you had redirecting issues, you might need to reset your home page and search engine to the one you used before:
On Internet explorer:
- Click arrow on the right of search box;
- Do the following: on IE8-9 choose Manage Search providers, on ie7 click change search defaults;
- Remove SaveNShare from the list.
On Firefox :

- Type “browser.search.selectedengine” in the search box. Right click it & reset it;
- Search for ‘browser.newtab.url’. Right-click and reset. This will make sure that the search page won’t launch on each new tab.
On Google Chrome:
- Click 3 horizontal lines icon on browser toolbar;
- Select Settings;
