Uninstall Jollywallet From Firefox
Jollywallet is a potentially harmful program which is distributed through various 3rd party freeware and shareware software. It can be either be downloaded through the official Jollywallet websites, or through the installation bundle for various freeware programs.
Even though Jollywallet is not a virus, it is potentially harmful as it may redirect you to various infected or malicious websites that might download other malware that can pose a serious threat to the security of your system and your personal and private information. Jollywallet claims to be a program supported by affiliated marketers and thus shows its users various promotions, and it redirects its users to various promotional websites as such. This may even lead to infected sites since Jollywallet does not check the reliability of the websites it redirects its users to.
The Jollywallet plug-in infects all the browsers in your system. It will collect your search and browsing history and make it available to various advertisers. You will then be redirected to various advertiser sponsored websites whenever you will conduct a search. A Jollywallet toolbar will also be installed in all your browsers. Jollywallet installs in each of your browsers and disrupts work due to all the constant redirects, pop-ups, and sponsored search results.
Choosing the custom or advanced installation settings during installation of 3rd party freeware in your system can ensure that you do not install any unwanted or additional programs other than the ones you downloaded. Default installation settings may cause other unwanted malware programs that may be in the installation bundle to be downloaded and installed without user consent. It is this important to make sure you deselect any other additional programs that the installation bundled may be offering to install.
