How to remove My Safe Savings from the computer and browsers

My Safe Savings is an advertising-oriented program, or "adware". This means that My Safe Savings is displaying you ads, banners and pop-ups to earn money on the impressions and referrals.

 

My Safe Savings adware

 

Such programs as My Safe Savings use many different tricks to lull user's attention, and all these tricks were used against you now. Let's figure out, what it was, and how to fight it. The first thing that user sees when he receives a proposition to download a program is its name. The names of advertising programs are very good, they contain such words as "Savings". "safe", "deals", "discounts", "offers", "easy", "fast" etc. These words must make user feel that the program he's going to download is the best among all others, and will bring him incredible profit (enhanced search, safe savings or anything else). The other thing is a stealthy penetration. Only 10-20% of adware victims remember that they downloaded adware from somewhere. Other 80% swear that they haven't even seen such program until the massive infection made their computers completely useless. It means that adware uses other ways of penetration, such as e-mail spam, torrents and bundled installation. If you want to learn more about these ways of infections and about methods to avoid them - we have a nice article about it. It is called "How to protect your PC from malicious programs", and contains all needed information.

Some users wonder why the programs like My Safe Savings were created. The advertisement that they show to us is annoying and nobody even looks at it, because the only thing that you want, when your browser is infected by adware, it to hide those ads. The ads, distributed by adware must be useless, but people still use them to promote their websites. What's the trick? The trick is in the fraud scheme that involves both the advertiser and the owner of adware. The advertiser wants to improve the traffic of his website. Services of reputable advertising agencies are too expensive, but services of hackers and their half-legal software are cheap. Tens of thousands of users will suddenly click on ads, and go to the third-grade websites which can't afford anything useful to their visitors. There is another reason why it's so profitable to create adware. It is so, because adware is completely legal. Adware has all its functions written down in EULA, and user accepts it before adware installs. So, the only thing that will help you to get rid of advertisement is the complete removal of My Safe Savings adware.

This method no longer works. My safe savings now has a redirect. when you try to uninstall it you get redirected to an uninstall page that gives you a link to get another virus. Can you update this so I can be saved?

I uninstalled My Safe Savings through the control panel (Windows 10), went into Safe mode and ran MRT, ran Malwarebytes, ran Hitman Pro, ran Panda abtivirus, and scanned with TDDS rootkit killer. Ran regedit, and removed the last four remaining references to My Safe Savings. I found an empty SafeSavings folder still existed on my C drive, so i deleted it. Ten seconds or so later, the folder just reappeared. i checked the task manager, and there is no process running which would account for this. Used "Take Ownership" on the folder, right clicked and went into security, but I still do not have full administrtive rights. Checked services and nothing obvious listed there. Simply cannot permanently delete the empty folder.

I got it from a mirrored FTP server. The site has now been shut down by Google. The only way to get rid of mysafesavings is to click "Run" type in msconfig Load click the diagnostic startup then restart your system into a safe mode. Run the task manager right click on mysafesavings and go to file location. Then right click on the file and click on security and change the permission. Then in task manager kill it if there. Then run regedit and find and delete all mysafesavings. The only folder that will be left is safesavings which is located under c:\program files (x86)\safesavings. If you try and delete the folder, it will just regenerate. Right now I'm trying to figure out how to get rid of it. No luck so far. There has to be a hidden script file or batch. I have ran adaware, malwarebytes, ECET, Spybot Search and destroy but all of those programs do not see the file. But the good side is that the main virues program is not longer a threat.

Quoting Bethany:
I have windows XP, and I have tried uninstalling my safe savings so many times, in the exact way described, but it just won't.

It seems to me your computer was infected by malware. Scan the system with antiviral scanner.
