Hello, canova

Thanks for your trust and attention on our Anvi Ad blocker. Strictly speaking, Anvi Ad Blocker can block the site isearch.claro-search.com, but it is still necessary to uninstall the Claro programs through add/removal programs and also repair the Internet settings in Internet browsers respectively since this is a non-malicious hijacker that modifies the series of browser settings .


Thanks for your support again and we will work even harder to provide nicer and more useful software to meet users' needs. :geek:

Wish you good luck and be safe online! :mrgreen:

Thank you so much Anvisoft! But I just have one concern. Claro LTD is not found in my Control Panel Programs. But I did remove it from my Google Chrome like how you explained it. And it's all good now. But I'm not sure if it's still affecting my computer. Will Anvi SD dectect Claro LTD incase it's still there?

Hello, Joshua Archinet Canlas :D

Actually, Claro LTD toolbar is not malware but a browser help object that may annoy some users like you and thus Anvi Smart Defender would not define it as one of its target to detect. However, to prevent this toolbar return, or rather to prevent any risky pop up ads, you may turn on the security features on your installed browser to block pop up ads on Internet to reduce the risky potentials. As for this, you may see the detailed information on turning on security features in IE, FIrefox, Google Chrome here: :arrow: http://forums.anvisoft.com/viewtopic-47-883-0.html


By the way, if you want to block the site isearch.claro-search.com site or block the pop up ads from your browser, the Anvi AD Blocker which is actually integrated in Tools module of Anvi Smart Defender will do you a favor in a convenient way.

Thanks for your support and kind reply. :D Hope this help and wish you good luck and be safe online. 8-)
