Over the past six months I had a lot of trouble surfing the Internet and working on my PC. I tried different free and pay antivirus software, but they were all of little help. I scanned with Exterminate It! It turned out that my computer was infected by five different viruses and Trojans, and your tool found them all! Now my PC is perfectly fine. I am really impressed.

Exterminate It is also very simple to use, which is essential for computer novices like me. I like it so much that I recommend it to my family and friends.

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.
