Dulativergs Virus

Dulativergs

Dulativergs is a page-rerouting and ad-displaying program that belongs to the browser hijacker category. Once installed in your system, Dulativergs can display hundreds of pop-up ads and banners on the browser’s screen and reroute user searches to various sponsored websites.

Dulativergs

According to the reports we have, Dulativergs is rapidly taking over popular web browsers like Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Safari and others and making some unwelcome changes to their homepage and/ or search engine settings. This is precisely why we have come up with a detailed removal guide and offer a professional Dulativergs removal tool to help the victims of this browser hijacker uninstall it without fail.

Perhaps the most relieving fact about the Dulativergs Pop ups is that it is NOT a virus. Being a browser hijacker, the Dulativergs  Pop ups cannot self-replicate, steal online account and bank credentials like a Trojan, encode your data like Ransomware or carry out any other unlawful activities while on your system. This software is aimed only at displaying ads in different forms and shapes and redirecting you to pages full of them.

  3. Select Dulativergs from the list and click on Uninstall.

If you have a Mac virus, please use our How to remove Ads on Mac guide.

If you have an Android virus, please use our Android Malware Removal guide.

If you have an iPhone virus, please use our iPhone Virus Removal guide.

What we suggest you do first is, check the list of programs that are presently installed on the infected device and uninstall any rogue software that you find there:

  • From the Start Menu, navigate to Control Panel ->>> Programs and Features ->>> Uninstall a Program.
  • Next, carefully search for unfamiliar programs or programs that have been installed recently and could be related to Dulativergs.
  • If you find any of the programs suspicious then uninstall them if they turn out to be linked to Dulativergs.
  • If a notification appears on your screen when you try to uninstall a specific questionable program prompting you to just alter it or repair it, make sure you choose NO and complete the steps from the removal wizard.

Remove Dulativergs from Chrome

  1. Click on the three dots in the right upper corner
  2. Go to more tools
  3. Now select extensions
  4. Remove the Dulativergs extension
  • Once you open Chrome, click on the three-dots icon to open the browser’s menu, go to More Tools/ More Options, and then to Extensions.
  • Again, find the items on that page that could be linked to Dulativergs and/or that might be causing problems in the browser and delete them.
  • Afterwards, go to this folder: Computer > C: > Users > *Your User Account* > App Data > Local > Google > Chrome > User Data. In there, you will find a folder named Default – you should change its name to Backup Default and restart the PC.
  • Note that the App Data folder is normally hidden so you’d have to first make the hidden files and folders on your PC visible before you can access it.

How to get rid of Dulativergs on FF/Edge/etc.

  1. Open the browser and select the menu icon.
  2. From the menu, click on the Add-ons button.
  3. Look for the Dulativergs extension
  4. Get rid of Dulativergs by removing it from extensions

If using Firefox:

  • Open Firefox
  • Select the three parallel lines menu and go to Add-ons.
  • Find the unwanted add-on and delete it from the browser – if there is more than one unwanted extension, remove all of them.
  • Go to the browser menu again, select Options, and then click on Home from the sidebar to the left.
  • Check the current addresses for the browser’s homepage and new-tab page and change them if they are currently set to address(es) you don’t know or trust.

If using MS Edge/IE:

  • Start Edge
  • Select the browser menu and go to Extensions.
  • Find and uninstall any Edge extensions that look undesirable and unwanted.
  • Select Settings from the browser menu and click on Appearance.
  • Check the new-tab page address of the browser and if it has been modified by “Dulativergs” or another unwanted app, change it to an address that you’d want to be the browser’s new-tab page.

How to Delete Dulativergs

  1. Open task manager
  2. Look for the Dulativergs process
  3. Select it and click on End task
  4. Open the file location to delete Dulativergs
  • Access the Task Manager by pressing together the Ctrl + Alt + Del keys and then selecting Task Manager.
  • Open Processes and there try to find a process with the name of the unwanted software. If you find it, select it with the right button of the mouse and click on the Open File Location option.
  • If you don’t see a “Dulativergs” process in the Task Manager, look for another suspicious process with an unusual name. It is likely that the unwanted process would be using lots of RAM and CPU so pay attention to the number of resources each process is using.
  • Tip: If you think you have singled out the unwanted process but are not sure, it’s always a good idea to search for information about it on the Internet – this should give you a general idea if the process is a legitimate one from a regular program or from your OS or if it is indeed likely linked to the adware.
  • If you find another suspicious process, open its File Location too.
  • Once in the File Location folder for the suspicious process, start testing all of the files that are stored there by dragging them to our free online scanner available below.
  • Each file will be scanned with up to 64 antivirus programs to ensure maximum accuracy
    This scanner is free and will always remain free for our website's users.
    This file is not matched with any known malware in the database. You can either do a full real-time scan of the file or skip it to upload a new file. Doing a full scan with 64 antivirus programs can take up to 3-4 minutes per file.

    • If the scanner finds malware in any of the files, return to the Processes tab in the Task Manager, select the suspected process, and then select the End Process option to quit it.
    • Go back to the folder where the files of that process are located and delete all of the files that you are allowed to delete. If all files get deleted normally, exit the folder and delete that folder too. If one or more of the files showed an error message when you tried to delete them, leave them for now and return to try to delete them again once you’ve completed the rest of the guide.

    How to Uninstall Dulativergs

    1. Click on the home button
    2. Search for Startup Apps
    3. Look for Dulativergs in there
    4. Uninstall Dulativergs from Startup Apps by turning it off
    • Now you need to carefully search for and uninstall any Dulativergs-related entries from the Registry. The easiest way to do this is to open the Registry Editor app (type Regedit in the windows search field and press Enter) and then open a Find dialog (CTRL+F key combination) where you have to type the name of the threat. 
    • Perform a search by clicking on the Find Next button and delete any detected results. Do this as many times as needed until no more results are found. 
    • After that, to ensure that there are no remaining entries lined to Dulativergs in the Registry, go manually to the following directories and delete them:
    • HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Random Directory. 
    • HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Run/Random
    • HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Microsoft/Internet Explorer/Main/Random

    What is Dulativergs?

    Although it is usually harmless, however, a browser hijacker, like Dulativergs or Sensiblemoth.com can still be considered potentially unwanted. The reason for this is that sometimes such software may be used to monitor the users’ web surfing activities, record them and sell them to third parties. The collected data can also be used to analyze and predict the interests of consumers in order to help marketers advertise exactly the goods in which they may be interested. There is also another undesirable possibility – certain advertisements can reroute users to dangerous commercial links or websites, which can infect their computers with far more dangerous software, such as real Ransomware or Trojan-based viruses.
    Most commonly, programs like Dulativergs and New Captcha Here are distributed in a bundle with other free software. When you download and finally activate Dulativergs from the bundle, a number of advertisements might start to appear on your screen. If you want to avoid that, our advice is to carefully read the whole End User License Agreement and use the installer’s Custom/Advanced/Manual option when you are about to install any new program on your device. In this way, you will know exactly what you install on your computer and will have the ability to manually disable any potentially unwanted software that may come inside the software bundle.


    Is Dulativergs dangerous?

    If your system has already been infected with Dulativergs you will most likely need a removal guide like the one above to successfully remove the browser hijacker and its unwanted ads and browser changes from your system. If you don’t have the patience to follow the manual instructions, you can use the professional Dulativergs removal tool instead. Such a tool can not only scan your entire computer for unwanted programs and eliminate them but can also save you from hidden malware programs and viruses. And the best is that once you deal with the browser hijacker, you can easily restore your favorite browser settings and get rid of the nagging banners, pop-up ads, and random redirects.
