How to remove Candle Jar (Virus Removal Guide)
Candle Jar virus
Candle Jar by The Results Hub (also known as Candle Jar virus) is an intrusive browser add-on and extension for Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, and Safari that changes your existing internet browser settings in order to cause browser redirects to sponsored webpages such as search-simple.com. Candle Jar bundles with programs and files that are detected by reputable security software as potentially unwanted programs (PUPs) and malware. These programs sneak the Candle Jar add-on onto affected internet browsers, usually without user knowledge.
Candle Jar also displays unwanted advertisements while users browse the web. Candle Jar ads can be delivered as generic banners and skyscrapers, in-text ads, pop-up ads, and pop-under ads. Ads by Candle Jar are also served across multiple internet browsers.
The “Candle Jar virus” is not technically defined as a computer virus, it’s just a term that many use to identify the deceptive and intrusive program. However, the browser attachments and programs it associates with are still a threat to your privacy or the sign of a severe malware infection since this item bundles with additional malicious software.
The internet security community strongly recommends that you remove Candle Jar if you find it installed on your machine or attached to your internet browser as a browser add-on or extension and use reputable Antivirus or Anti-Malware software to eradicate any malicious files.
