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

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.

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

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.

I'm having the same problem. I uninstalled Savetube but it didn't help. It doesn't always happen, but does happen randomly. I'm running Firefox 3.6.6 w/ Windows 7 Ultimate.

I filtered out the registry and cleaned it for Savetube. I uninstalled and reinstalled the FF. Also I have scanned my machine using macAfee. I am still facing the same issue.

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..
