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
If you would like to reach out to us for further assistance, you
can do so at this email address: firstname.lastname@example.org, thank you.
