Exterminate It! Antimalware


Known threats:700,085 Last Update:March 01, 12:55


Just want to say that apparently your Exterminate It has worked like a charm. I was infected with a most troublesome Malware Trojan that kept replicating every time McAfee found, blocked and removed it... most annoying for several days... until Mr. Google led me to your door. What a God send!

With thanks,

  • Hijacking valuable private information (credit card numbers, passwords, PIN codes, etc.)

  • Dramatically slowing down your computer.
  • Gaining total control of your PC to spread viruses and trojans and send out spam.
