What is TrustedLogos?

The Malwarebytes research team has determined that TrustedLogos is adware. These adware applications display advertisements not originating from the sites you are browsing.

How do I know if my computer is affected by TrustedLogos?

You may see these warnings during install:

How did TrustedLogos get on my computer?

Adware applications use different methods for distributing themselves. This particular one was installed by a bundler.

How do I remove TrustedLogos?

Our program Malwarebytes can detect and remove this adware program.
  • Please download Malwarebytes for Windows to your desktop.
  • Double-click MBSetup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.
  • When your Malwarebytes for Windows installation completes, the program opens to the Welcome to Malwarebytes screen.
  • Click on the Get started button.
  • Click Scan to start a Threat Scan.
  • When the scan is finished click Quarantine to remove the found threats.
  • Reboot the system if prompted to complete the removal process.
Is there anything else I need to do to get rid of TrustedLogos?
  • No, Malwarebytes removes TrustedLogos completely.
How would the full version of Malwarebytes help protect me?

We hope our application and this guide have helped you eradicate this adware.

As you can see below the full version of Malwarebytes would have protected you against the TrustedLogos adware. It would have blocked the installer before it became too late.
