    As this site currently has a wot trust badge this needs urgent action please.
    I first came across this site yesterday when I opened Firefox. It appeared on a
    new tab next to my homepage.

    Further investigation shows it is blocked by malwarebytes pro

    IP / sanityswitch.com (same owner) is blacklisted by hphosts

    When I submit to v/t I discover there is an adware called W32/Yontoo

    RE: yontoo.com

    I double checked the sites (more for my own sake) and results were the same, thanks for the info.

    all rated

    dropdowndeals.com & yontoo.com are still in the green and need more ratings.

    RE: yontoo.com

    Hello and thank you for your feedback. Yontoo cannot install itself, more cases than none, the software is installed through bundled offers that users sign up for. Our software is neither a virus, nor malware or spyware. We are in contact with malwarebytes pro to get the software taken off their list as they are unknowingly giving our software a bad name. Our software can be easily uninstalled by following these instructions:

    Go to your start menu
    Click on Control Panel
    Click Remove Programs
    Remove Yontoo Layers and the PageRage toolbar
    Restart computer

    If you would like to reach out to us for further assistance, you can do so at this email address: press@yontoo.com, thank you.

    RE: yontoo.com

    @ Yontoo
    Uninstalling the toolbar might appear easy but not all users are advanced users. There are thousands of BEGINNERS that can fall into installing a questionable toolbar and the most of them do not even know what risks may come with any adware ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adware )

    I installed one of your toolbars, I was alerted severaI times by WinPatrol, my Browser was hijacked

    Uploaded with ImageShack.us

    Get your software delisted from the above mentioned antimalware vendors or stop distributing adware and I'll remove my rating and comment.

    Thank you

    Post scriptum, I would add to the above list
