Tuvaro virus is also known as Tuvaro search virus | Type: Browser Hijackers

Tuvaro virus is a completely annoying infection, which causes redirections when browsing on the Internet. It typically takes over all search engines, including Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Bing, and starts rerouting its victims to In fact, this threat can also be called as browser hijacker, because it has to get inside the system first and then modify some of its settings in order to redirect PC users when they are searching. Remember, if you've been redirected to the site against your will, you must leave it immediately because there is a great danger of getting infected with more serious viruses. While we can't say that is malicious or spreads malware, it's clearly promoted by using unfair methods and may give forged search results for its victims. Besides, such 'search engines' are also actively used to track users' browsing habits and additionally sell this data for marketing companies or the third parties.


Tuvaro virus gets inside the system without any permission asked. Typically, its infiltration is closely related to dangerous sites, spam, malicious links or even malware, so you should always make sure that your PC is protected as it should be if you want to prevent such threats. Once Tuvaro gets on its target PC, it alters computer's settings and starts making its victim visit every time he/she starts a new browsing session. So, soon you may find out that you can't visit Google, Yahoo or other trustworthy search engines. Besides, it can also install Tuvaro toolbar on your computer without any permission asked.. As you can see, Tuvaro virus is a sneaky infection that deserves to be removed. Please, do not ignore its annoying redirections because you may get infected with more serious threats!

Comments on Tuvaro virus

From what I gather, this is what the virus does to your computer:
(bare with m e Im a bit baked and Im on an unfamiliar computer, but I used to do this thing day in, day out as a job. also i have been programming and scripting for as long as i have been able to read chapter books):

...1...."Trovi Toolbar":

This is a program installed on your operating system. Were going to get rid of it.

Uninstall it through "Add/Remove Programs" (or "Programs & Features" in Windows 7/8 IIRC).
1. Navigate to the above "Control Panel" item, easily through "Start" or your desktop.
2. Use the "Uninstall/Change" selection (or right-click the item and select it) for the following programs as well as any similar names: Tuvaro uninstaller; WPM17.8.0.3159, Tuvaro Browser new tab extension, lePluginService, SupTab.
3. If you have an "Apply" button (older Windows versions) make sure you do so before the next section.


...2...."Search Virus":

Only two small things happened here. This page only mentions Internet Explorer (IE), Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome--no mention of Opera or other browsers.

First, plugins were installed into your web browsers. Remedy this by:

- Internet Explorer: find your "Manage Add-Ons" area by clicking the "Gear" icon.
- Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome: get to "Extensions" from the top-right corner menu icon under the submenu "Add-ons" (Firefox) or "Tools" (Chrome).

Now, remove any entries in the same manner as you did in "1. Trovi Toolbar". See those at the line beginning with "2. Use the "Uninstall/Change"".

Second, some of your web browser preferences were changed: your homepage/startup screen and your default/preferred search engine.

Now, be a darling and save me some typing--click right here on this comment text and then hit your "Home" button. I think the original text explains this quite well. Begin from item 3 under the appropriate browser name.


If you find anything resilient to uninstalls, removals, etc., then at least have a look in the "Program Files" (and "Program Files (x86)" if it exists) folder in your C: drive.

I too have this tuvaro on my computer. It messes up my facebook. I did see on the list as search module so I Feel better now about deleting that. Hope I can get it off my PC
How can I remove this program? I have 2 programs that will not uninstall from my computer: Search module and shopperpro.
Tuvaro other browser
Use websites that are memorable and dont show tuvaro: in the search bar go to the browser and i found mysearchdialsearch which didnt say tuvaro, but when i opened the browser without it, it opened tuvaro
Any antivirus and internet securities wont help, because it comes up with a rootkit, a thing that makes a virus invisible from any securities, I have know many virus with rootkit, that includes tuvaro
Tuvaro da virus
Ok, but at least you guys are aware, at first it was just a toolbar, and it is already a threat, if you havent stopped that as a toolbar, it is harder to stop as a search engine
It was called Seach module on a customers computer.

Tuvaro is not in the "Add Remove" programs list because it is disguised as something else!
Well tuvaro is annoying if it highlights words blue/orange, then you are starting to
Be infected. Do then hovering your mouse over makes a small advertisement. So if you typed in "Buy"
It will want you buy things. You must remove then.
I should have been told that I have to buy up front for XoftSpy antivirus before I downloaded it & waited for almost 30 minutes for it to do its thing.
Should have told me I had to buy it up front!
Try using best internet securities like Comodo, Kaspersky etc...
