Do you know what TakeSave is?
TakeSave is an adware application that was made using the JustPlugIt engine. As a product of this platform, TakeSave is practically identical to SaveON, SaveNShop, SharkManCoupon, and many more. All of these adware applications do the same thing, are distributed the same way, and should be removed immediately after finding them on your system. Some computer users may feel hesitant to delete them, but we are here to assure you there is nothing that could cause you to miss these applications, because they are quite useless and annoying.
TakeSave works by adding a browser extension on Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and Internet Explorer upon installation. It uses this access to your web browsing to figure out your interests by monitoring your browsing habits and history. When it has enough information and all other criteria are met, TakeSave activates. Then it starts displaying annoying pop-ups, banners, and other ads on your web browser window. Clicking the ads is not a good idea, no matter how interesting they may seem. Adware is known to lead computer users to websites that contain adware or even malicious threats to your system. Just remove TakeSave and avoid altogether the temptation of clicking on the ads.TakeSave screenshot

If your computer has been infected by TakeSave, the most likely way you got it was by clicking a fake download link on a torrent or other piracy website. Clicking these links downloads an InstallRex installer, and it sets up a bundle of software if you are not careful. You should close it immediately because these freeware bundles will not provide much value to you. They are used as adware delivery platforms and can sometimes also contain malware. If you do run this installer to the end, please make sure to uncheck any boxes offering to install programs you are not 100% sure about.
Hopefully, we have convinced you that the best option available is to remove TakeSave. You can do it in one of the two ways. You could delete it manually or let a professional automatic spyware removal tool do it for you.
