Exterminate It! Antimalware


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


I purchased Exterminate It! yesterday, as a last ditch effort from having to scratch load an XP Pro workstation, which was infected with the WOWfx Trojan.

In short, your product eliminated all malware on the system. It was the only commercially available product that not only detected the problems, but eliminated them.

For the record, I attempted using:

The registered versions of Spyware Doctor, XSoft Antispyware, CA Antispyware and the free version of Adaware, which all recognized, but failed to clean my system.

Outstanding product.

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