Typically you will be getting lots and lots of Advertisements, whether as a pop-up greeting any time you start your web browser and/or as a redirect to another website. We will talk a bit more about this in a moment. First we would like to point out that Easy Calendar remover has been reported to track your online activities. The sad reality is a high number of legitimate programs are doing this every day, but when we are talking about an Adware and tracking online activity in the same sentence then you have some pretty legitimate causes for concern.

What to expect from the Easy Calendar extension?

As promised let’s talk about the typical features of the Adware virus:

  • You will notice the numerous ads that open up on your desktop when you start internet browsing.
  • Many times there will be tabs with strange and or unknown to you websites being opened in your web browser.

It is a fairly certain proposition that you should try your best not to interact with the advertisements or the shady websites you have been redirected to in any way. Not only are the ads fake and you are certainly not going to get anything useful from there but you will also be exposing your system to more dangerous stuff as well. Easy Calendar remover has been reported to gather you location as well as your online activity. While it is not entirely clear what is happening with the gathered data and if it is being sent to a third party without your consent, we certainly wouldn’t take a chance with something this sensitive. Neither should you – so follow our free guide and remove this malware virus from your PC.

When Easy Calendar extension has first accessed your hard drive it is a pretty safe bet that its first task has been to infect all web browsers on your hard drive. Even if you primarily use only one or two you should apply the whole removal guide for each browser present on your system. If you don’t, you risk the virus reoccurring at some point in the future even after you have successfully removed it the first time.

This type of virus will notoriously try and trick you into “opening the gates” to more of its siblings, namely more Adware like Easy Calendar remover but in some cases more vicious kinds of malware as well. Do not let yourself be duped into installing anything prompted by this virus or any other unconfirmed sources, be especially alert for files with .exe extension. As a rule of thumb never run executables if you are not completely sure where they come from and what they do.

notepad %windir%/system32/Drivers/etc/hosts

BIG WARNING HERE! READ THIS BEFORE PROCEEDING!

You are almost there and the virus will be soon gone. That’s the good news. The kinda bad news is the next few steps in our guide are very tricky and if not executed correctly you might cause some very real and significant damage to your device. Neither we nor you would like that to happen. So if you are not entirely and absolutely sure you know what you need to do you’d better opt for the automatic professional Easy Calendar extension remover that we recommend.

One thing is definitely certain – you cannot let this pest remain on your system any longer than it takes you to remove it entirely and completely. Especially considering your personal information might very well be in danger!

malware-start-taskbar

Right click on each of the virus processes separately and select Open File Location. Also, End the process after you open the folder. Just to make sure we don’t delete any programs you mistakenly took for a virus, copy the folders somewhere, then delete the directories you were sent to.

Step6 (UPDATED!)

Take a look at the following things:

Type msconfig in the search field and hit enter: you will be transported to a Pop Up window. 

msconfig_opt

Go in the Startup tab and Uncheck entries that have “Unknown” as Manufacturer.

Type Regedit in the windows search field and press Enter.

Once inside, press CTRL and F together and type the virus’s Name. Right click and delete any entries you find with a similar name. If you can’t find them this way, look in these directories, and delete/uninstall the registries manually:

  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER—-Software—–Random Directory. It could be any one of them – ask us if you can’t discern which ones are malicious, but bear in mind they are always different.
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER—-Software—Microsoft—-Windows—CurrentVersion—Run– Random
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER—-Software—Microsoft—Internet Explorer—-Main—- Random

Remember to leave us a comment if you run into any trouble!

(UPDATED!)

Open your Chrome extensions tab and click on Developer Mode on the top right. Look at the ID right below the Easy Calendar Extension and record or screenshot it.

Now, Go to the following directory:

  • X drive (wherever windows is stored)/Windows/System 32/Grouppolicy/Machine

There should be a file called registry.pol. Open it with notepad and find the ID you recorded. Delete it.

There’s a high chance this alone may solve your problem with Easy Calendar.

      Just go on with the guide. If you delete everything else, you can easily get rid of Easy Calendar in chrome too. Don’t worry about not seeing it Safe Mode. Just go along with guide in “regular” mode.

       
  • An

    I’ve been trying to remove this virus for days!! It doesn’t show any traces of it in control panel, task manager, regedit, msconfig, startup or shortcut properties target. It doesn’t show at all whether in safe mod or normal one. I proceeded every single step you wrote and still I can’t uninstall it because I can’t find anything. It only shows as extension in normal mode which I can’t delete. PLEASE HELP.

     
    • Nathan Bookshire

      Is Easy Calendar persistent on all browsers or just one? Which one, if that is the case?

       
      • Nevaan Singh

        I have the same experience, it has been persistent on Google Chrome and there is no trace whatsoever in control panel, registry, etc Please help

  • Bill

    I have the exact same problem. It does not show up in any of the other steps and not in IE or Firefox (in either safe mode or normal). And it does not show up in Chrome in safe mode but does in Chrome in normal mode. In Chrome it cannot be disabled, instead a get a message it was installed by “Enterprise”. How do I remove it from Chrome?

     
  • Ada

    • Nathan Bookshire

      For everyone reading this: the creators of the virus probably changed something, and that’s why you can’t see it. Continue with the rest of the article especially the last 2 steps.

       
  • Dan

    Same issue as the others. Cannot remove this from extensions, it infects every browser I install. Removing and reinstalling Chrome did not fix.

     
    • Nathan Bookshire

      I’ll update the guide tonight. I found a solution to the problem.

       
  • Neill

    When I go through my CPU to Windows>system32>grouppolicy>machine, I can see the Easy Calender ID in the notepad, but when I delete it and try to save it, it says “Access Denied” and won’t let me save the change i made to the “registry.pol”. It says “Registry.pol already exists, would you like to replace it? [Yes] [No]” Naturally I press yes, and it says “Access Denied”. Any tips?

     
    • HowToRemove.Guide Team

      Copy registry.pol somewhere else, open the copy and make the change there. After that replace the real registry.pol with the copy. Did that work?
