    Savings Cool adware won't uninstall


    Savings Cool will redirect me to this website every 2 minutes. Savings Cool downloaded by probably downloading a file that contained a virus. It is in control panel but when I try to uninstall it says 502 Bad Gateway.

    Hi:

    Welcome.
    Please edit your post (if you can, as a forum newcomer) to remove the live link, so that other forum users/visitors won't pick up the same crud.

    Either munge the link : hxxp://www.badsite.com
    Or put it in code tags
    Code:
    http://www.badsite.com
    Next, you'll probably need to get cleaned up.
    Have you tried running any scans, such as MBAM Free, AdwCleaner, JRT, etc.?

    Thanks,
    MM

    Boot is Safe Mode with Networking and run Malwarebytes and ADWCleaner...

    Actually, that's not a great idea.
    MBAM needs full access to the entire system in order to work properly and clean thoroughly.
    It's designed to be installed from a Windows Admin account and to be run in NORMAL Windows mode.
    Running MBAM in Safe Mode is only a last resort for a computer than cannot boot because of severe malware damage.

    And, these days, with MBAM Chameleon and other built-in technology (as well as other specialized malware scanners), scanning from Safe Mode is rarely, if ever, needed.
    I suggest scanning from Normal Mode.
    (Additional tools may be needed for full cleanup, depending what else is on the system.)

    I do not know for sure about AdwCleaner, but I expect the same is true for that tool, as well.

    Cheers,
    MM

    Audrey123,

    Please try the following...

    Use the link provided by dencal and run ADWCleaner.

    After that, download and use the Junkware Removal Tool:
    https://www.malwarebytes.com/junkwareremovaltool/

    Also, try removing SavingsCool by booting into Safe Mode.
