Exterminate It! Antimalware


Known threats:699,443 Last Update:October 12, 11:44


Dear Matt and Exterminate it,

Thank you so much. This seems to have fixed the problem. Wow. That virus was in there pretty deep. A*G didn't even identify it. S****t would just freeze up when I tried to run it. But the update from Exterminate It, removed it.

Again, thanks.

Kind Regards,
Rev. Mel C. Montgomery

  • Disrupting the normal functioning of the operating system or rendering it completely useless.
  • Hijacking valuable private information (credit card numbers, passwords, PIN codes, etc.)
  • Directing all your Web searches to the same unwanted or malicious sites.
  • Dramatically slowing down your computer.
  • Gaining total control of your PC to spread viruses and trojans and send out spam.
