Dear Exterminate It,
I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you.
Your response and the update has fixed my problem.

Sincerely yours,
Bountiful, Utah

  • 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.
