Though not too dangerous or harmful, OnrymSpeedup is a problem that many users have on their computer. There could be different reasons for having OnrymSpeedup inside of your IE, Chrome, Firefox or some other browser while you are surfing the Internet.
In many cases, what causes the ads-generation are the sites that you visit. There are simply some web addresses that have a bit too many pop-ups, banners, page redirect links and box messages in their pages and the only way to stop the intrusiveness is not visiting those sites. Installing an ad-blocker may sometimes help but there are many types of online ads (page-redirects, pop-ups, pop-unders, etc.) that do not seem to get affected by ad-blockers. However, if you don’t normally visit sites and pages with many adverts in them and yet you still get too many commercial messages on your screen while browsing, then you may need to consider the possibility of having an adware app in your browser. Adware applications are not something to be scared of since they are different from viruses and other malware categories the likes of Rootkits, Spyware, Trojans and Ransomware.
The most typical thing about the Onrym Speedup virus is the adverts that they try to spam the users with. This is also Onrym Speedup primary purpose since the advertisements that they display earn money for the adware’s creators.
Still, it can be particularly annoying if you can’t easily reach a given site or page simply because your screen is constantly getting flooded with various nagging promotional messages, download prompts, sales offers and so on and so forth. OnrymSpeedup and SAntivirus Realtime Protection Lite is a good example of an apps that can cause your browser to behave in such an annoying way and since the majority of you are likely here precisely because of this apps, we will make sure to help you remove it from your browsing program and fully uninstall it from your computer.
What is OnrymSpeedup?
Something that many users tend to forget about apps like OnrymSpeedup is that they may actually sometimes increase the risk of landing some actual malicious malware infection such as a Trojan Horse or maybe a nefarious Ransomware cryptovirus. OnrymSpeedup itself isn’t really a software piece capable of harming your computer but the ads that it tries to swarm your browser with may sometimes be linked to sites that you would probably not want to visit.
Not all ads on the Internet are safe and this may also apply to the adverts that OnrymSpeedup might show on your screen. It is, therefore, preferable if you keep your distance from any promotional materials, online prompts or pretty much any other type of content that this piece of software may try to expose you to. Of course, removing the adware would directly stop all the nagging ads-generation which is why we must once again remind you to use the guide added to this page and, with its help, uninstall OnrymSpeedup in order to put an end to its intrusive activities.
How to Uninstall the OnrymSpeedup Virus?
To remove OnrymSpeedup from Windows, users should try to clean their browsers by deleting any rogue add-ons that may be present there.
- Open the main browsing program in the system, click its menu, and go to the Add-ons/Extensions settings.
- Once you get there, look through the items listed on that page, seeking ones that seem unwanted to you or ones that you are unfamiliar with.
- If you think one or more of the extensions shouldn’t be present in the browser, disable them and then delete them.
- To remove OnrymSpeedup for good, you must clean all other browsers in the system (even those that seem unaffected).
In many cases, this would be all that is required to get a hijacker like OnrymSpeedup removed from your PC. However, if the unwanted software has made other changes in the system, you may need to delve deeper and find all of its data and settings in the computer and remove them before you fully get rid of the hijacker. Therefore, if you are still seeing signs of the presence of OnrymSpeedup in the system, have a look at the more advanced removal steps below and follow them to solve the issue.
In order to not lose this page while completing the guide, it may be a good idea to bookmark it in your browser or have it open on another device since you will need to shut down and restart the PC while completing some of the steps.
The first step is to click the Start Menu, type Programs and Features, and click the first item that appears in the results. Next, in the window that opens, look at the items in the programs list and try to find any suspicious entries added (installed) right before OnrymSpeedup first started bothering you. If you find such an item, click on it, then select Uninstall (like shown in the image), and follow whatever uninstallation steps appear on your screen. Note: Make sure that when going through the uninstallation process you opt out of any options that offer you to keep on your PC anything related to the program you are currently uninstalling.
WARNING! READ CAREFULLY BEFORE PROCEEDING!
The next thing that must be done is for you to press Ctrl, Shift, and Esc from the keyboard and open Processes in the Task Manager. Then look for any resource-intensive processes that have odd or suspicious names and use Google (or another trusted search engine) to search for information about those suspicious processes.
If you find reports posted on reliable research sites and forums that suggest that the process(es) in question may be linked to the OnrymSpeedup hijacker or to another rogue app, go to the process in your Task Manager, right-click it, access its File Location folder, and scan all the files you see there with the next free online scanner:
In case any of the files you tested with our scanner are found to be potentially malicious, quit the process they come from by right-clicking it and selecting End Process, and then delete its entire file location folder.
If deleting the folder is not possible at the moment, delete as many of its files as you can and go to the following steps. Upon completing all other instructions from the guide, return to the file location folder and try to remove it again – by that point, you shouldn’t have any problems doing that.
Note: In case you didn’t detect any malware in the location folder, but there was reliable information online that suggests the suspicious process in your task Manager is unwanted, it’s still best to quit it
Step 3 It is important to be in Safe Mode during the remainder of this guide in case you weren’t able to quit all hijacker processes in the previous step. While in Safe Mode, Windows won’t allow any hijacker processes to be automatically launched in the background of the computer.
Step 4 Use the Winkey + R combination in order to evoke Run and then paste the next file location in its search field:
- notepad %windir%/system32/Drivers/etc/hosts
Step 5 Warning!: Only delete items from the Registry if you are certain that they are from OnrymSpeedup or from another unwanted software. If you are uncertain about anything, first consult our team through the comments section before you take any action!
Go to your Start Menu, type regedit, click the first item, and select Yes when a permission is required.
When you get to the Registry Editor tool, press Ctrl and F to evoke the search box and type in it OnrymSpeedup. Click Find Next and delete the first item that gets found (if the search finds anything). After that, do another search, delete the next item, and keep repeating this for as long as there are items to be deleted.
When the search for OnrymSpeedup stops yielding results, go to the next three directories from the sidebar to the left:
- HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Random Directory.
- HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Microsoft/Internet Explorer/Main
