I was having problems with gamevance, My computer had slowed down quite a bit and I wanted to get rid of the problem but didn't know how. So I started searching and came across Exterminate It. I was a little apprehensive about purchasing your product, thinking, what if I make the problem worse than it is. I went to youtube and found someone who had great success with your product. So I purchased your product and did the scan. Oh man, it got rid of all the malware gamevance. I was so pleased that I had to let you guys know. You guys ROCK!!! Thank you so much for a great product.

  • 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.
