I get http://www.landing.savetubevideo.com when I do searches and I alreadly uninstalled savetubevideo.

Posted

When I do searches and click on the results, some results go to custom search with the address http://www.landing.savetubevideo.com. I uninstalled this program and it didn't help.

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== I recevied an error message about downloader.com, wpcap.dll was missing

Chosen solution

Step 1: Use search function for "Download Youtube " and Savetubevideo" files. Delete all those file and shortcuts.

Step 2: Go to C:\Program Files. At "Download Youtube Free", right click on mouse and go to 'Properties' and uncheck 'Read Only'. Check yes to change all inside folders and files. Delete ALL the files in there. There will be one ***.dll file cannot be deleted. Rename the particular file to "111.xxx"

Step 3: Backup bookmarks from Firefox and uninstall Firefox on Control Panel.

Step 4: Go back to C:\Program Files and delete folder "Download Youtube Free"

Step 5: Go to C:\WINDOWS\Prefetch and delete any filename with "Download Youtube Free" or similar name to that.

Step 6: Reinstall Firefox. Import the back-up bookmarks.

I hope this helps.

HERE'S THE WAY TO REMOVE that annoying savetubevideo.

I tried every malware/etc. removal software. Nothing worked. Finally I downloaded (free for 30 days) revo uninstaller pro. You'll see it listed in your programs in the program. When you tell it to force uninstall it it will tell you that it can't find that programs built in uninstall feature. That's okay. You will then tell it "next" or "continue" and it will find leftover stuff (actually all of it and it will be alot). You will select ALL the boxes and tell it to delete. I did this a couple to times. It will remove all but a couple but it will tell you that once you reboot it will remove those. I did that and it deleted everything. I did one more search which brought up an empty folder for savetubevideo and I easily just deleted it and emptied the trash. Good luck. www.revouninstaller.com (I'm not an affiliate or anything for that site.)

Unfortunately www.revouninstaller.com tool didn't work for me... finally i have tried out a option in Mozilla browser itself to block savetube (www.landing.savetubevideo.com)

Once this page opens, right click > Page options click on 'Permission's tab & Block all, also go to securities tab & delete the cookies.

I have not faced problem afterward, I believe it is solved now..

Привет всем! Установил SaveTubeVideo 3.7 и получил такую-же проблему. Постоянные перенаправления на landing.savetubevideo.com. Удаление программы не помогло :(. Чистка реестра - тоже. Сделал так: 1. Установил Ashampoo UnInstaller 2000 2. Снова установил SaveTubeVideo 3.7 3. Удалил SaveTubeVideo 3.7 с помощью Ashampoo UnInstaller 2000 4. Удалил программу WinPcap 4.0.2, которая установилась вместе с SaveTubeVideo 5. Почистил реестр. За весь вечер - ни одного "вылета" :)

Hi all! I installed the program SaveTubeVideo 3.7 and got the same problem. Constant re-direct to landing.savetubevideo.com. Removing SaveTubeVideo not solve the problem, cleaning the registry - too. : (

Did this: 1. Installed Ashampoo UnInstaller; 2. Again installed SaveTubeVideo; 3. Removed SaveTubeVideo using Ashampoo UnInstaller; 4. removed the WinPcap driver (Standard Uninstall procedure), which has been installed with SaveTubeVideo; 5. Clean up the registry. During the whole evening - no "departure". :)

i had this problem too. i seem to have found a fix.

first start firefox in safe mode. does that work? it worked for me. if that does work then start in normal mode, goto tools/addons/themes and go back to the default. then restart browser. fixed? with me i only had the default theme in the first place so that wasnt it. then tools/addons/extensions. disable everything. that fixed it for me. so from there once you know its one of the extensions then pick and choose which to enable and see who the culprit is, but if they're all disabled there shouldnt be an issue.

i should mention there's still a small problem. if i type something into the address bar, say "hello", it used to google that word. now instead it goes to a different search. but at least i can browse comfortably w/o that savetube site opening every few seconds. yayyy!

I had this problem too and I found that you have to take an additional step to get rid of the annoyance.

Before you re-install FireFox you have to go to C:\Documents\(your user name)\application data\Mozilla.

Your path will be different but similar.

There you delete the contents of the folder. Apparently it is in this folder that the data for this pest are stored.

After that proceed with the re-installation and the import of the bookmarks.

Hope that helps.

Pete

@arealmuse, I cannot possibly tell you how much I love you. Your solution worked perfectly, and thanks to it that god-damned thing has scampered with its ass on fire from my computer. Soon I will be joining a world-wide propaganda against this site. Bastards. Thank you so much. Hope you are a girl, so that my love doesn't go in vain... :-)
