Vgrabber Toolbar is such a masty computer virus. It entered into my PC a week ago. I was really very stupid to believe this tricky virus and thought that it really has the function to help me find, see or download videos from online websites like Youtube, DailyMotion etc. After I installed it, I realized that it is just a computer virus as it made a great chaos when I operated my PC. I really spent a long time to get rid of this stubborn computer infection.
When Vgrabber infiltrated into my PC, it added some odd icons and search bar on the top of my web browser. I have opened these icons once, wow, the websites that they navigated me to are all about the pornographic contents. I feel lucky that I never open them again as later a computer expert told me this website may contain some computer viruses, if we stays on it longer, we may provide a chance to the computer virus to invade into our PC.
Before added icons and shortcuts on the browsers and desktop, I think Vgrabber Toolbar also brought in some other kinds of computer viruses into my PC as the homepage of my PC is changed after few days Vgrabber Toolbar invading into my PC. And then is my default search engine. What made me most annoying is that this virus stopped me resetting them back.
The pain of Vgrabber Toolbar virus infection is far more than those above. The influence of Vgrabber Toolbar virus infection is always cascaded. When my web browser is not safe enough, my whole computer system is not safe anymore. The PC is running more and more slowly and what’s worse, I got windows freeze twice.
I knew that I must remove Vgrabber Toolbar as soon as possible. God know what it would bring into my PC.
