Do you know what Gosavy is?
Gosavy is one of the many variants of the GoSave adware application. This program has a semi-random name because it is generated randomly upon every single installation. It is possible to remove Gosavy manually, but you have to keep in mind that you should then run a full system scan with a licensed antispyware tool. Gosavy may enter your computer bundled with other unwanted software, so your computer security should be your utmost priority. Do not hesitate to acquire a licensed computer security tool if necessary.
Users often think that Gosavy is a malicious infection because they do not notice how it enters their computers. The point is that there is no direct download source for this application; it ALWAYS gets distributed in software packages. Thus, if users download freeware from third-party sources, they are very likely to find more than just one application in the third-party installer. The problem is that users seldom pay attention to the notifications in the installation steps. Consequently, Gosavy gets installed on the target computer together with the program that the affected user wanted to have in the first place. As you can see, we cannot categorize Gosavy as malware, because it does not enter your system surreptitiously.Gosavy screenshot

As mentioned above, Gosavy is yet another version of GoSave. This means that Gosavy is part of the semi-random name adware family, and it is based on the JustPlugIt engine. You most probably had Gosavy installed on your system through the InstallRex installer, although in some cases this program might also be distributed via the Vittalia and Amonetize installers. What’s more, it is obvious that Gosavy is practically identical to NextCoup, SaferWeb, Webbing, and a host of other programs from the same group. Hence, we can expect the same palette of behavioral patterns from Gosavy as from its predecessors.
Gosavy works like a browser extension, and it is compatible with Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Internet Explorer. Security researchers note that the newest Google Chrome versions block this extension because it is thought to be unreliable. This fact alone should be enough to prove that no good can be expected of Gosavy. Before your browser gets flooded with annoying (and potentially dangerous!) commercial ads, delete Gosavy from your computer.
After manual removal, check your system for other potentially unwanted programs by investing in a powerful antispyware tool to terminate undesirable applications automatically.
