EZDownloader is bundled with GreatSaver, a browser add-on which provides the user with search-related coupons and advertisements; a system optimizer called PC Optimizer Pro; a browser add-on called SNT, and a browser hijacker websearch.toolksearchbook.info.
As to the browser hijacker, the user is not informed about the changes that will be made immediately after the installation. Websearch.toolksearchbook.info is set as the home page of the browsers; moreover, it becomes the default search provider of your browsing tools. Instead of your favorite start-up page, you have to deal with websearch.toolksearchbook.info, which also generates a new advertisement every time you refresh the home page. Take action to remove it from the browsers, because it monitors your browsing behavior and provides you with dubious search hits on the search engine results page. The very fact that the changes on the browser are made without your permission means that your privacy is violated, so do not let that vicious browser hijacker manipulate you.
If you are concerned about the pop-ups of Optimizer Pro, you should bear in mind that this application only consumes system resources. Even when you activate it, that is, pay a particular sum of money to acquire the full version of the program, little changes are likely to be made on the system.
As to the adware programs that are installed alongside EZDownloader, we recommend that you remove them from the PC. GreatSaver monitors your search terms, clicks, and other actions on the internet in order to provide you with relevant coupons, special deals, and advertisements. It is not liable for the content of the advertisements and the websites to which you are taken by all those pop-ups, so if you want to protect yourself on the Internet, remove it from the PC right now.
The following instructions should help you uninstall the unwanted application, but we recommend that you rely on a powerful spyware removal. If you do not have a powerful application, it is time to get one. Do not wait – take action right now if you want to get rid of the annoying hijacker, adware programs, and the potentially unwanted program.
