How to Remove RelopiX (Uninstall Guide)

Tell your friends:
RelopiX is an adware program that displays pop-up windows on the left side of the screen with a list of related searches below. It usually effects pretty much every website you visit and it works just fine in all major web browsers: Chrome, Firefox and IE. Related searches may be relevant to your recent web searches or website content. Very often, they lead users to misleading websites offering bogus products or services. Not all of the time, but enough to to raise the red flag. This adware is commonly bundled with other free programs that you download off of the Internet, including well known download websites and fake Java or Flash update pages. One way or another, if your computer is infected with this adware/PUP then you probably installed it by accident, like most other PC users. This guide will walk you through removing RelopiX from your computer and web browsers.

RelopiX removal might be a tricky task because sometimes, because it may be listed as a completely different program, for example Yontoo or WebCake. In fact, it's rarely listed as RelopiX. So, even if it's not Yontoo, try to remember what you've recently installed on your computer or simply sort programs by date. What is more, it may install web browser extensions, so it would be a good idea to those as well. Otherwise it will keep re-installing itself. It will leave add-ons in web browsers and it won't uninstall additionally installed malware.

To avoid similar adware infections in the future, please do not download suspicious programs, and check programs before you install them. Often, choosing the advanced or custom install for software will allow you to de-select components and you can remove adware and spyware from the installation process. If a website asks you to download software you should leave it immediately unless you requested it. I can't seem to get rid of it at all or you have additional questions, please leave a comment below. Good luck and be safe online!
