Exterminate It! Antimalware


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


Dear Jean,

Thank you for your follow-up. I did indeed use the Submit State feature last night and this morning, your team sent me instructions to run an 'update' and then re-run Exterminate It! on the PC. I just finished that process and the new update wiped it out. I ran my regular anti-spy/anti-virus to double-check and it wasn't able to detect it either. I appreciate the support from both you and your team.

Why Is It Important to Remove Malware Files?^

It is imperative that you delete malware-associated files as soon as possible because they can be used - or are already being used - to inflict serious damage on your PC, including:

  • 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.
