Dear Exterminate It,
I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you.
Your response and the update has fixed my problem.
I have spent several weeks fiddling around trying to resolve it, and could not and my previous Anti-Virus program could find it but not fix it.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!

Sincerely yours,
Bountiful, Utah

David S. B.

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.

Deleting Locked Files^
