How to Remove/Stop/Uninstall Tube Dimmer-Manual Removal Guide

What is Tube Dimmer?


Tube Dimmer is claimed to be the free application that allows you to turn off the lights when watching videos on your favorite websites. It is said that you'll find a new light switch button on eligible websites while the Tube Dimmer is running. However, is it really that helpful? Tee Support labs recently have received many complaints that Tube Dimmer get installed itself without their knowledge and refused to be removed. I will list the one of the report below:

'but not Tube Dimmer...very little help available on Net to destroy it, as it seems to be a new type of is gone from Add/remove Programs but starts up every reboot...and will not shut down...not sure if it is available in Task Manager/Processes (no obvious entries...must be masquerading as somthing else).'

You see? Once installed, it must be a nightmare and keep coming back again and again. Usually it comes along with the suspicious attachments and via visiting questionable websites or free software downloads. Once infected, Tube Dimmer will always redirect you to its homepage and related websites or even display you some commercial ads. Many computer users have tried Add/remove Programs under the control panel, yes it may be gone from there, however, Tube Dimmer start up every time you reboot your computer and keep running and won’t stop.

How it can do that? Because Tube Dimmer has hid itself deep down the system and has modified some system settings such as DNS settings. That’s why even Malwarebyte cannot remove it.

You have to check if there is some suspicious registry show on the registry editor. And no worries, Tee Support labs will cover you back. You are welcome to follow the removal guide below:
