This article aims to help users remove Ilividlive Virus from Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer and Safari, as well as their respective system.
Ilividlive Virus is a malicious piece of software that has likely infected your computer since you are reading this article. It is characterized by it’s ability to generate lots of advertisements displayed into your internet browser and as such fits in the Adware category of malware. Further “features” of this Adware include it’s effect of slowing down your computer and also the constant danger it poses to the security of your machine and private data.
Remember that in essence the Ads created by Ilividlive Virus work as additional data that needs to be downloaded and then rendered&displayed every time you load a new page. This undoubtedly puts extra strain on your CPU and badwidth speed. Browsers will generally try to display everything at once, so these extra Ads will result in additional loading time. On older computers or those with poor internet speed these slowdowns might even result in program unresponsivness, data loss, crashes and more.
Be very wary of everything offered to you for download by Ilividlive Virus
Ilividlive Virus is in its core a malicious application – it does not have your best interests in heart. There is a very good chance that most of those Ads you see are fakes that lead to sites who will attempt all kinds of scams upon you or even install viruses on your computer. For these reason it is best if you stay away from the Ads.
If Ilividlive Virus can’t make you visit one of the infected pages it may have another trick up its sleeves to get you. It involves misleading you into downloading some piece of software that will be offered to you for free in order to fix a problem with your computer. Note that there is probably no problem to begin with. Ilividlive Virus is capable of creating Ads and pop-ups that look exactly like system messages. If you get an offer to download a missing plug-in, to install a required video player or codec in order to view online media or to update a mainstay program like Flash or Java – DON’TDO IT. Those messages are fake and the only reason of their existance is to push you into downloading the virus-infected executable. The same applies if some mysterious online scanner examines your computer for free and find it full of viruses, registry errors, bad sectors in the HDD and a maltitude of other bogus problems. Even if you do not have an installed anti-virus program an online scanner will NEVER be able to search your computer – you are just a target of another scam.

Remove Ilividlive Virus
Our first step here is a reboot in Safe Mode. If you already know how to do it, just skip this and proceed to Step 2. If you do not know how to do it, continue reading:
For Windows 98, XP, Millenium and 7 Users:
Restart your computer. To be sure you don’t miss the time when you need to press it, just spam F8 as soon as the PC starts booting. In the new menu, choose Safe Mode With Networking.
Proceed to Step 2.
For W. 8 and 8.1 Users:
Click the Start button ,then Control Panel —> System and Security —> Administrative Tools —> System Configuration.
Then check the Safe Boot option and click OK. Click Restart in the new pop-up.
Proceed to Step 2.
For Windows 10 Users:
- Open the Start menu.
- Click the power button icon in the right corner of the new Start menu to show the power options menu.
- Press and hold down the SHIFT key on the keyboard and click the Restart option while still holding down the SHIFT key.
Windows 10 will perform the reboot. Next do the following:
Click the Troubleshoot icon, then Advanced options —> Startup Settings. Click Restart.
After the reboot click on Enter Safe Mode With Networking (Fifth Option).
Continue with Step 2.
With Safe Mode enabled it’s time we turned our attention on the virus itself. The first step involves cleaning the hooks Ilividlive Virus has set into your internet browsers. Most commonly these threats integrate themselves as browser add-ons. To get rid of Ilividlive Virus run Step 2 and Step 3 seperately for each and every browser currently installed on your computer. Make sure to include all browsers – even those you are no longer using regularly, but are still installed.
If Ilividlive Virus pops-up a confirmation message make sure to read it carefully before pressing Yes or No. It may be using convoluted wording where it will try to install another Adware applicatio if you agree to its request. Don’t allow it to install anything and don’t agree to visit any sites for evalutions, surveys and the like.
For Internet Explorer Users:
Open IE, then click —–> Manage Add-ons.
Find Ilividlive Virus . Remove it by pressing Disable.
If your Home Page is different from the usual, click —–> Internet Options>edit the URL box with your preferred search engine, and click Apply.
Go to STEP 3.
For Mozilla Firefox Users:
Open Firefox, click on (top right) ——-> Add-ons. Hit Extensions next.
Ilividlive Virus should be somewhere around here – Remove it.
Go to STEP 3.
For Google Chrome Users:
Start Chrome, click —–>More Tools —–> Extensions. There, find the virus and select (Remove).
Click again, and proceed to Settings —> Search, the fourth tab, select Manage Search Engines. Remove anything but the search engines you normally use.
Go to STEP 3.
For Safari Users:
Open Safari, and click Safari —–>Preferences —–> Extensions—–>Uninstall the malware.
Go to STEP 3.
Right click on the browser’s shortcut, then click Properties.
NOTE: We are showing Google Chrome, but the method is the same for all browsers.
Once you’ve reached Properties —–> Shortcut (on the band at the top), then in the Target type field, REMOVE EVERYTHING AFTER .exe.
Continue with STEP 4.
Hold the Windows Key and R together. Write appwiz.cpl in the new field, then click OK.
You are now in the Control Panel. Search around for Ilividlive Virus and anything else suspicious-looking. Uninstall it/them. Also, be extremely careful. Viruses often spend one last ditch effort to trick you into installing more of their kind. If you see a screen like this when you click Uninstall, choose NO:
Hold the Windows Key and R again – but this time copy + paste the following and click OK:
A .txt file will open – don’t touch anything there. If you are hacked and someone has access to your PC, there will be a bunch of other IPs connected to you at the bottom. This is what a hosts file looks like:
If there are a bunch of strange IPs connecting to you below “Localhost” you may be hacked, and it’s best to ask us in the comments for directions.
Go to STEP 5.
Open the Task Manager by right clicking on the Taskbar and choosing Start Task Manager.
Once it opens, choose the Processes Tab. Look at all of the processes in front of you and try to determine which ones are a virus. Google them or ask us in the comments and we will provide the best assistance we can.
FINAL STEPS AHEAD BUT MAKE SURE TO READ THIS FIRST!
What we have up next is likely the most difficult step of the guide, but also a very important one. Make sure to read and follow the instructions carefully as this is also a bit dangerous. If you delete the wrong files it could result in damage to your programs and even Windows installation! If you are not feeling comfortable with such a scenario we recommend that you instead download the professional anti-malware remover we recommend. Not only will it get rid Ilividlive Virus for you without any chance of anything going wrong, but it also has a powerful scanner that you can use for any latent viruses or newcommers installed by Ilividlive Virus during the time your PC was infected.
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.
Move on to STEP 6.
Take a look at the following things:
Type msconfig in the search field and hit enter: you will be transported to a new window.
Go in the Startup tab and Uncheck anything that has “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 the registries manually:
- HKEY_CURRENT_USER—-Software—–Random numbers
HKEY_CURRENT_USER—-Software—Microsoft—Internet Explorer—-Main—- Random
