If you have SafetyNut on your computer you will see processes such as safetynut.exe and safetynutmanager.exe running in the Task Manager. SafetyNut is installed with a program called “Movies Toolbar”.
A few of the anti-virus programs are detecting SafetyNut. Here is the scan result from VirusTotal for one of the files:
- Kingsoft Win32.Troj.Generic.a.(kcloud)
- Malwarebytes PUP.Optional.SafetyNut.A
- ESET-NOD32 a variant of Win32/Toolbar.SearchSuite.D
Are you looking for removal instructions for SafetyNut? Easy, just uninstall the Movies Toolbar and SafetyNut will be removed as well.
Did that completely remove SafetyNut? Please let me know. If not, I’ll provide an alternative uninstall method.
