Hi,

I'm very happy with your performance. I'll be a customer for life. Winctrl32.dll has gone. I have 4 other Bought and Paid for Malware programs that I have but none are as good as yours and none have the same individual response times as good as yours. Some do not respond to help At All.

Great job!

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.
