Hi, I'm Alice. I'm glad to answer for you. Crawler.com is a potentially unwanted program and classified as a redirect virus. This threat is created to replace users' default homepage and search engine. To completely get rid of it, you need to remove its homepage and search engine from your web browser and reset your browser to default setting. For the redirect virus removal, you an refer to the post

You probably have the crawler virus. Go to www.malwarebytes.org and download the free version of MalwareBytes. Install it and update it. After it is updated, run a scan. Updating it is pretty straight forward. Let me know if you have any questions.

I have an incessant popup from Microsoft Windows that says "CToolbar.exe has stopped working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a...


Hi lfakenstine,

According to a web search, that "CToolbar.exe" file is part of "Crawler Toolbar" which comes with the Web Security Guard software program. Here is an explanation of what it is from the web site below:

"
Web Security Guard comes with Crawler Toolbar that offers a unique combination of search results from Google, Yahoo! and MSN with a single click. Crawler Toolbar is 100% safe, contains no malicious software and does not facilitate pop-up ads.

Additionally, Crawler Toolbar offers many functions such as spyware & adware protection, popup blocker, download manager, Radio & MP3 player, RSS reader, email notifier and much more.

Crawler Toolbar helps to ensure that Web Security Guard is always up to date. Updates are automatically downloaded and installed shortly after their release."


This is basically a toolbar found in your web browser. If you never use it and don't care to, you should be able to find it in Windows "Add/Remove Programs" located in the "Control Panel" and uninstall it from there.

If you do want to continue to use it, I suggest doing a reinstall of the program because it may have become corrupted. You can do this by uninstalling it from the steps I just mentioned in the paragraph above. To install it again, go to the site below which has more information about the program and the download linik.

http://www.softpedia.com/get/Security/Security-Related/Web-Security-Guard.shtml

One final note, towards the bottom of the site, it says this:

"Reasons why this program is marked as ad-supported:

Contains Crawler Toolbar. You have the option to make Crawler.com your default search engine or your homepage."

If you scan your PC for spyware and adware, this toolbar may be triggered as malicious.

Good luck and let me know how everything turns out. If you have anymore questions, feel free to post your questions on here again.
