Exterminate It! Antimalware


Known threats:699,443 Last Update:October 12, 11:44


I consider myself pretty good with a computer, but after 10 hours of trying to do this myself, the sysguard.exe whipped me. I couldn't find all the files and when I thought I had them all, they would replicate and play hide and go seek I have never endorsed a product in a comment, but if you want to rid yourself of this stuff, pay the $24.99 and download Exterminate-It It fixed my system in 5 minutes!

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.
