TargetSaver - Saving You From Useful Browsing

TargetSaver claims to help browsers by offering them the advertisements they want to see - things that might truly improve their browsing experience. Instead, though, they provide all sorts of advertisements and report information about you to their clients, erasing your browsing privacy.

What is TargetSaver?

TargetSaver is adware, but it is also a browser plugin that sends ads to you while you look around online. In many cases it appears as a toolbar for users complete with links to affiliate advertisers. In other cases, though, TargetSaver simply sends ads to users. It is possible to get TargetSaver when you download other freeware and shareware products. While you will be asked if you want to install it in most cases, the question is usually hidden under other layers of installation material, so it can be difficult to know what you're answering.

You might also recognize TargetSaver by a few other names. Some of its aliases include Adware.TargetSaver,Trojan.Downloader.TSA, and Uploader-R.

What Might I Notice With TargetSaver?

If you do have TargetSaver on your system, you may notice a number of things. One of the first things you'll see is an increase in popup advertisements on your screen. In most cases, these will occur only as you're browsing, and TargetSaver suggests that each of these will be related to your browsing experience, but this isn't always the case. TargetSaver sends you advertisements from its affiliates, and should you not visit any related sites during a browsing session, you'll still get the advertisements it thinks are most relavant to you. In some cases, these can include advertisements for pornography and gambling websites, so it's important to be careful if you have minor children in your home.

Another thing you might notice is that your browser's default home page has changed. In many cases, it is switched to targetsaver.com, but in other situations, it is changed to one of TargetSaver's affiliates. When you started running your browser, your or your computer manufacturer set a default home page for your browser. In most cases, that's a search engine or the computer manufacturer's home page. Once TargetSaver takes over, though, it can essentially hijack your browser and change your default home page settings. It can also change the default settings for your browser redirect page. Whenever you have a page loading error, you tend to get a page that says something like "Page not found." However, when TargetSaver is installed on your computer, it will redirect you to its site or one of its affiliates.

You may also notice how slowly your computer is moving once TargetSaver is installed on your computer. TargetSaver has to run many processes to be constantly moving within your browser. As a result, your computer has many tasks running at any given time. This means your virtual memory will be eaten up just by running TargetSaver. When  you try to run a process or a program on your computer, it will start much slower than it should.

What You May Not Notice With TargetSaver

Just because you'll see a few fairly harmless things when TargetSaver is installed on your computer doesn't mean that its not more serious than that. TargetSaver does have some fairly concerning effects as well.

First, TargetSaver has the ability to update itself at will. This, in turn, means that it can access your internet connection whenever it wants. If you have dial-up or your internet service provider is concerned about your bandwidth usage, this could cause you some fairly serious problems on that front. What this also means, though, is that TargetSaver can download and install other adware and spyware programs to your machine without your knowledge or consent. It also has the ability to transmit information about you. While it usually sticks to transmitting information about your internet viewing habits, it does have the ability to collect and reveal anything that you do with your computer. Whether you pay bills with your checking account, apply for a new credit card, or login to your business accounts, TargetSaver can record and transmit all of that information if it chooses to do so.

How To Remove TargetSaver

TargetSaver removal is a bit of a tricky process. There are essentially four ways to go about it, and each work with varying degrees of success.

The first thing you could try is to remove the program from your add/remove programs control panel. For most users, though, this just doesn't work. You could also try a system restore, but this works only right after TargetSaver is added to your machine, and for many, it takes days to notice the program.

Your next option is removing it by deleting all of the associated files in the computer's registry and throughout the system. Keep in mind, though, that there are a lot of files, and missing just one will cause it to reinstall. You should also be careful, as working within your system registry is a fairly dangerous process.

Your final option is to work through your current antispyware software to remove TargetSaver. If you don't have antispyware software, consider getting a program like ParetoLogic on your system to take care of all your adware and spyware needs. It's easy to remove programs like TargetSaver when good antispyware software is on your side.
