If your computer has been infected by Save Pages Virus then you certainly have a reason to worry because Save Pages Virus is a virus fitting the Adware variety. Fortunately this is not a very dangerous virus if handled properly and if you follow our instruction you should be able to get rid of it without any lasting damage.
The first thing that is important to understand is that Save Pages Virus creates advertisements and these Ads are not capable of directly harming your computer. Instead the Ads will promote all kinds of stuff and if you try to follow them they can take you to dangerous virus-infected websites that can try phishing out your credit card numbers, passwords and more. Alternatively if that plan fails Save Pages Virus can also try to trick you into installing another virus on your computer. For these reasons it’s very important to ignore the Ads and anything else that the Save Pages Virus offers you. This is especially true for any free installations of any kind.
Be careful, Save Pages Virus is not shy of creating fake messages claiming non-existent problems with your computer. We’ve seen reports about missing plug-ins, required video codecs or players, fake warning messages about virus installations and a ton of other crap. All of this is absolutely fake and the only reason for it’s existence is to manipulate you into downloading the “fix” program Save Pages Virus will offer you and the virus that goes with it.
How was your PC infected in the first place?
The most common methods evolve running an infected executable file or through a software bundle. Remember that downloading and running executable files (ending with .exe) is a risky business when those files are downloaded from unsafe locations. This includes all kinds of forums, torrents, storage sites and whatever else that is different from the official owner site of the program.
Program bundles are when you have an installer for a program that installs additional applications besides the main one. For this reason try to always select the advanced installation option on anything you run and carefully read what will be installed. The safest course of action is to deny access to anything you don’t really need or looks suspicious.
