Exterminate It! Antimalware


Known threats:700,086 Last Update:March 16, 12:51


Running an update right before activating seemed to do the trick. Many thanks. (Also, once I had it properly activated, Exterminate It! got rid of the SpySnipe trojan I’d been battling with for a week, so the news is even better!)

  • 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.
