GetSavin

What is GetSavin?

GetSavin is a potentially unwanted program that monitors and tracks a user's online behavior and injects advertising into the web pages a user visits. It also installs a toolbar in the user's web browser as well as bundles additional 3rd party programs. The program monitors the web sites a user visits in order to display coupons, deals, discounts, special offers, promotional codes, or sales offered by affiliate stores or other merchants based on the context of the user's web browsing activities. The browser add-on is a self updating downloadable toolbar, or, in some browsers, an extension or add-on, that provides you access to coupons based on a search conducted by the user or that are offered based upon sites you visit or searches you conduct in your browser where the Browser Add-on is installed and is enabled. GetSavin is the exact same adware variant as Coupon Amazing.

In a nutshell, this is what GetSavin does:
- Displaying targeted advertisements by inserting them directly into web pages or displaying over parts of existing ads.
- Alter affiliate codes that already exist in the web page.
- Injects hyperlink ads on a web page by converting words into linked to advertisements.
- Monitors and records the domain name of each page you view, the ads that appear and the ads that you click.

I noticed this has been installed on my computer a week ago. Around the same time FF was getting stuck and 'not responding'. I had to remove Firefox completely to stop my computer from freezing up. I also think I removed Incredimail toolbar at that time. I noticed I am still having issues on my computer. I have Norton and it says everything is fine but I don't think it is. I can't connect to some web sites anymore. That's one problem that I've noticed. I have a feeling there's more problems I'm unaware of. Any additional help would be great.

insanely annoying! I didn't even mean to install it. At least removal was easy.
