  1. This program has become more sophisticated and these uninstall techniques do not work. The program also changes file extensions to file type- “.happy2save” and can destroy other programs through corrupting files in this way. I still haven’t been able to remove it totally even after years of trying to do so by following this and other removal guides.

      • If there are 2 viruses with the same name then how can I find a remedy for my version? I have uninstalled or removed all of the files that this instruction asks me to uninstall or remove and yet, every few months, inexplicably random files are renamed with the file extension “happy2save” file type.
