How To Remove ErrorSafe

What is ErrorSafe?

ErrorSafe is marketed as a tool to help you perform several PC maintenance tasks, such as cleaning your registry, fixing corrupt files, performing disk cleanups and resolving hard disk errors. In reality it is a malicious adware software. The promotional advertising program used by this tool is intrusive and is installed on your computer without your consent. Just like most of the other adware programs, ErrorSafe may either stealthily install on your computer or may come bundled with another Freeware program.

What happens when a PC is infected with ErrorSafe?

The most common symptom of ErrorSafe infection is the popup ads that are displayed in message boxes that look similar to Windows error and warning message boxes. These message boxes may contain advertising information that may prompt users to download and use ErrorSafe to fix various problems with their Windows computer.

These message boxes may contain advertising information similar to the text given below:

NOTICE: If your computer has errors in the registry database of file system, it could cause unpredictable or erratic behavior, freezes and crashes.

Fixing these errors can increase your computer's performance and prevent data loss.
