Posted: January 6, 2014 | Category: Adware | Threat Level: 2/10
GreatSave4u is an adware application that may make settings changes to your browser for loading extra advertising content. GreatSave4u isn't a threat, but GreatSave4u does exaggerate the benefits of its advertisements with respect to their impact on your online shopping experience, and malware experts classify GreatSave4u as an unnecessary performance burden for your browser. Deleting GreatSave4u by normal methods may cause an incomplete deletion that lets GreatSave4u reinstall itself, and the use of anti-malware programs for the process will prevent you from needing to relive the ordeal....

Trovi.com

Posted: January 6, 2014 | Category: Browser Hijackers | Threat Level: 5/10
Trovi.com is a Conduit-affiliated 'search engine' that redirects any would-be searches to Bing. Although this site has had very little content of any interest, Trovi.com only was brought to malware experts' attention fairly recently, when Trovi.com became part of a string of browser-hijacking incidents. Even if Trovi.com, alone, isn't much of a threat to your computer, these Trovi.com redirects from your default search engine, homepage or any other Web page should be considered damaging to your browser's performance and safety.

Social Privacy's ultimate goals and intended long-term functions still are being investigated, but malware researchers would consider deleting Social Privacy to be something to be done with the same quickness you'd show when removing any threat.
