Exterminate It! Antimalware


Known threats:699,742 Last Update:October 27, 11:19


I just wanted to thank you. My computer was frozen last night thanks to an online Easter card that was sent to me via the funcards site. I couldn't do anything but open windows.
I tried to open the exterminate it program that I purchased last year but the funcards site was blocking it, too!
I decided to purchase a new year of service (knowing my current one is going to expire sometime this month). It took two hours of searching, but exterminate it fixed my computer last night.
I have no idea how you all do it, but I would be lost without your service.
Thank you!!!

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.
