Yontoo Layers Client

Here we go again with things that are not exactly threats but they are. Don’t know what I’m talking about? I mean browser add-ons like Yontoo Layers Client, that are not computer viruses and YET we cannot trust them completely. I wouldn’t be writing about that, if I haven’t seen people trying to remove Yontoo Layers Client from their computers. Now why would anyone want to remove something like Yontoo?

Simple, this browser add-on exhibits an intrusive behavior. What is more, it makes use of unethical methods to find its way into your computers. To be honest, when I try to access yontoo.com which is the official lens20414257_1358259173website for Yontoo Layers Client, my antivirus program even blocks the site, saying that it’s been known to host dangerous content. Suspicious much?

Sure, the official website might claim that Yontoo Layers Client is a great application that improves your overall browsing experience, giving the Internet an individual customization, but whoah whoah – hold your horses. Fact – Yontoo Layers Client is NOT a virus, and it is not dangerous on its own. Question – does this browser add-on come alone? Well that is highly doubtful. Yontoo Layers Client commonly arrives bundled with free software applications, and it can be easily misused and exploited by a third party to deliver malware and what not. After all, Yontoo Layers Client is closely related to DropDownDeals, PageRage and other applications that are not so squeaky clean after all.

On top of that, if you go through the installation process negligently, you will probably end up having your home page and your default search engine changed without your consent. So if you find Yontoo Layers Client too annoying, what do you do about it? The answer is simple – remove it. Since it is not a blatantly malicious program, you can remove Yontoo Layers Client manually, and here’s how to do it:
