To get rid of an Add-On in Firefox
by ListeningBartender / March 5, 2014 9:39 AM PST

I may be able to help you with Mozilla Firefox. In Firefox look at the very top row of your taskbar.
Click on TOOLS then scroll down & click on ADD-ONS. This should bring up all the add-ons
that you have. Find the one causing your problems and there will be a box to the far right of
it with an arrow pointing down. Click on the arrow and your choices will appear - Just click on
NEVER ACTIVATE & then close Firefox & then start it again. The deactivated Add-On should
not appear.

It sounds like it's an add-on

If it's an add-on (which is what it sounds like), in IE do this:
- Click the gear
- Click Manage add-ons
- Look through the list for Tuvaro & click on it
- Click the Disable button in the lower right corner
In Firefox do this
- Press ALT-T & click Add-ons
- Click EXTENSIONS & look there
- Click PLUGINS & look there
In Chrome do this
- Click the Customize button (just below the red X)
- Point at the TOOLS entry in the list
- Click EXTENSIONS and look there.
Good luck.

Try running a virus scanner.

Not sure why it doesn't show up under uninstall.

I tried all the things that were mention, and none of them worked.
and it dose not show up any place so I can uninstall it or remove so I guess I will live with being there.
A Big thanks for all the suggestion I really appreciate this group.

Removal process for a toolbar or add-on differs according to the type and nature of the plugin. However follow below mentioned steps to remove any add-on or extension:
• Delete the toolbar from windows browser.
• Remove associated file from control panel.
• Delete associated files and codes from registries and cache.
• When this is done, scan your system completely with the help of some reliable antivirus software such as Immunet Antivirus, F-secure antivirus, BD antivirus, Panda antivirus, Comodo antivirus etc.

Hope this helps.
