User Comments

I've looked it up before and it says it's used with facebook. The problem is... You can't get rid of it and I've had issues with my computer ever since it was installed. It will install itself without the user knowing. Other malware and spyware files will install themselves through this.

Appeared on my system without my knowledge or assent (appears to have been secretly bundled in AeroSnap via I uninstalled and disabled the browser addon then used Spybot S/D to remove most of its remaining files. Still had to edit the registry manually to completely get rid of the IE addon.

Best practices for resolving YontooIEClient issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with YontooIEClient. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using cleanmgr and sfc /scannow, uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using msconfig) and enabling Windows' Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off doing a repair of your installation, or in the case of Windows 8, executing the DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.
