DownTango is an adware, which is NOT malicious but has some unfair features that can hardly be welcomed by PC users. First of all, it usually comes with a toolbar and causes annoying redirections on every browser you start to use. In most of the cases, users find themselves redirected to commercial websites or its official domain downtango.com. Additionally, the uninstaller of this program hasn't been executing, so here we can find a serious problem with Downtango's removal. No matter that this program is presented as a handy browser's downloading tool and it is recommended by Cnet and Softpedia, you may find it useless and quite annoying because it can easily affect all your Internet browsers, including Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and IE. 


Downtango is promoted online and can be easily installed manually. However, other way how you can download its toolbar is quite unfair: this program may come inside your computer in a bundle with freeware and shareware. That's why it is highly recommended paying attention to every installation window and blocking all unwanted software when downloading something. Once this adware gets inside the PC, it alters some PC's settings and starts interrupting user's browsing sessions. That results in continuous appearance of Tango Toolbar Search once Google Chrome is opened and annoying redirections to such websites as search.certified-toolbar.com, downtango.com and similar. If you have also accidently found DownTango adware on your browser and you don't find it useful, follow the guide below:


In order to remove DownTango from your computer, you should uninstall this program from Add/Remove Programs list first of all. Additionally, finx your browser by following these steps:

Open Google Chrome -> click Wrench Icon -> Settings -> Manage Search Engines -> Remove unnecessary Search Engines from the list and make a certain search engine as default search engine.

Mozilla Firefox:

Open Mozilla Firefox -> go Tools -> Magnify Glass or Arrow icon -> Manage Search Engines -> Remove unnecessary Search Engines from the list, make Google or other search engine as your default.

Internet Explorer:

Open IE -> go Tools -> Manage Add-ons -> Search Providers -> Remove unnecessary Search Engines and make a certain engine as default.

We also recommend running a full system scan with  SpyHunter or  STOPzilla to find browser hijackers and other suspicious things automatically. If redirections still continue, check every step on this post: How to stop Google redirections.
