You will also find a removal guide that is designed to assist you in uninstalling the invasive software.
“Ever Save” and how it affects your PC
“Ever Save” is a version of Adware. As you may have already guessed the word Adware comes from the phrase ‘advertisement software’. This term comprises all the known types of ad-generating software. Such software’s specialty is the mass production of ads in various colors, shapes and forms. As we have mentioned above, it could affect every single search engine. Among the other features of this Adware-type program is its capability to in fact do research on your personal preferences. The purpose of such a feature is to strive to show only the pop-ups and banners that you might truly be interested in. “Ever Save” does such research by reviewing your recent browsing history, recorded on all of your search engines.
If “Ever Save” can access browsing history and change the settings of your browser, you may think it is a virus…
However, NO Adware-based program has ever been considered malicious. Typical viruses can indeed destroy some of your files, crash the whole system or even block some data and blackmail you into paying ransom (just as Ransomware usually does). You cannot expect such disturbing effects from “Ever Save” or any other similar software. It is only capable of generating many advertisements that might annoy you. There have also been rare cases where Adware programs were actually able to redirect users to potentially dangerous locations on the web; however, the chances of this happening are fairly slim.
How does “Ever Save” infect a computer?
Maybe you are interested in how exactly the source of your annoyance had infected your PC. The ways of distributing Adware are directly connected to the way these programs typically function. Usually “Ever Save” can be caught from many diverse sources such as spam emails, their attachments, torrent and shareware distributing pages. However, the most wide-spread means of distributing Adware are program bundles. Such bundles are the results of a process called software bundling. This process is completely legal; it gives vendors a chance to promote their services and products online. Also, it gives developers the opportunity to make some extra money from advertising the aforementioned goods of the interested vendors. That’s why software bundles exist, because vendors pay every programmer that develops them according to the number of the generated and clicked on ads.
As you are already aware of the reasons for making bundles, here come the way they get integrated into your PC. Usually such an infection process only takes place after you give your informed or uninformed consent for it. Let us explain this crucial moment in details: you may have downloaded such a program bundle and may want to install a certain program that it contains. However, in case you have chosen the wrong installation feature, you are very likely to end up being contaminated with “Ever Save”. The installation features that you should NEVER choose could be called Automatic, Typical, Default, Brief, Easy, Quick. Do not choose any of them. Instead, in case you are willing to maintain your machine’s healthy condition, you are supposed to always go with the other possible options. They might be called Advanced or Custom. Selecting the right step of the wizard will ensure your safety and only the desired programs from the bundle will be installed.
