TSVIPSrv.dll is a legitimate Windows file, but malware can sometime disguise itself as such a file. Much like the rest of the Trojans, TSVIPSrv.dll will compromise the machine with the help of some legitimate-looking transmitter and will sneak in without being detected.

Tsvipsrv.dll 1024x496
Many security vendors flagged this file as malicious

Most of the web users who become victims of threats like TSVIPSrv.dll and Trojan.MSIL.Stealthmutant.A.Enc don’t even know where, when and how the intrusion took place. This is because, typically, the Trojans use camouflage and successfully present themselves as harmless applications, web ads, links or software installers in order to delude the web users about their real nature and harmful capabilities.

All the Trojan Horses representatives are horrible, destructive and risky pieces of malware that are powerful tools in the hands of people with malicious intentions. Their stealth, their ability to perform a variety of harmful activities one after the other, and their tricky distribution tactics is what makes threats like TSVIPSrv.dll unpredictable, extremely harmful and incredibly difficult to detect and remove. Even professionals in the security filed may have a hard time to deal with new Trojan representatives and figure out what they are up to. Not to mention that it may really take some time to correctly detect and remove all the malicious files linked to the infection since Trojans often tend to hide in different system directories and even can mimic regular system files and processes.

Please follow all the steps below in order to remove TSVIPSrv.dll!

How to remove TSVIPSrv.dll

  1. First, click the Start Menu on your Windows PC.
  2. Type Programs and Settings in the Start Menu, click the first item, and find TSVIPSrv.dll in the programs list that would show up.
  3. Select TSVIPSrv.dll from the list and click on Uninstall.
  4. Follow the steps in the removal wizard.

What we suggest you do first is, check the list of programs that are presently installed on the infected device and uninstall any rogue software that you find there:

  • From the Start Menu, navigate to Control Panel ->>> Programs and Features ->>> Uninstall a Program.
  • Next, carefully search for unfamiliar programs or programs that have been installed recently and could be related to TSVIPSrv.dll.
  • If you find any of the programs suspicious then uninstall them if they turn out to be linked to TSVIPSrv.dll.
  • If a notification appears on your screen when you try to uninstall a specific questionable program prompting you to just alter it or repair it, make sure you choose NO and complete the steps from the removal wizard.

  • Note that the App Data folder is normally hidden so you’d have to first make the hidden files and folders on your PC visible before you can access it.

  2. From the menu, click on the Add-ons button.

If using Firefox:

  • Open Firefox
  • Select the three parallel lines menu and go to Add-ons.
  • Find the unwanted add-on and delete it from the browser – if there is more than one unwanted extension, remove all of them.
  • Go to the browser menu again, select Options, and then click on Home from the sidebar to the left.
  • Check the current addresses for the browser’s homepage and new-tab page and change them if they are currently set to address(es) you don’t know or trust.

How to Delete TSVIPSrv.dll

  • If you don’t see a “TSVIPSrv.dll” process in the Task Manager, look for another suspicious process with an unusual name. It is likely that the unwanted process would be using lots of RAM and CPU so pay attention to the number of resources each process is using.
  • Tip: If you think you have singled out the unwanted process but are not sure, it’s always a good idea to search for information about it on the Internet – this should give you a general idea if the process is a legitimate one from a regular program or from your OS or if it is indeed likely linked to the adware.
  • If you find another suspicious process, open its File Location too.
  • Once in the File Location folder for the suspicious process, start testing all of the files that are stored there by dragging them to our free online scanner available below.

    Is TSVIPSrv.dll dangerous?

    As we mentioned, the Trojans are powerful malware tools that hacker can use to steal and manipulate valuable data in your computer, corrupt or destroy system files, modify specific system or user settings, load your PC with other malware and more.
    The total range of what a single Trojan might theoretically do is very broad, therefore, we cannot concentrate on every single way such a malware may harm you. However, it is necessary to understand that if you want to avoid a potentially irreparable damage, then swift action is what is required to remove the infection. More on this you can see in our removal guide below.
    One concern with Trojan Horse viruses such as TSVIPSrv.dll is that, in most instances, they typically camouflage well without red flags or signs. You are unable to find anything odd both at the moment of initial infection and afterwards, since the malware works from the background of the system. Some more aggressive Trojan infections may trigger your computer to behave strangely or experience frequent crashes, errors and decrease in productivity due to excessive RAM and Processor usage. However, these same issues may appear due to many other reasons and may not necessarily indicate a Trojan Horse infection.
    That’s why it is critical that you remain cautious and install a reliable security program in order to protect your computer in the best possible way.
