Exterminate It! Antimalware


Known threats:699,742 Last Update:November 20, 22:46


I have had major computer issues in the last week. I was infected with the Darksma and Vundo downloader trojans. After researching the net for possible solutions, i found they are extremely difficult to remove. I tried a variety of spyware removal tools to no avail. To do it manually is near on impossible.
The symptoms are, computer runs slow, constant ad pop ups, hijacking of emails, theft of information and locking of a variety of functions.
I then found buried deep in a google search a link to Exterminate It. After reading it, I downloaded to do a free scan and a lot of stuff no other spyware had found showed up. So i went searching the locations and sure enough the files where there on my system. I tried removing them with no luck. So i spent the $25 usa to activate.
It removed all but 4. I was disappointed that the Trojans once again reloaded and my problems continued. So, i used the SUBMIT STATE service. I supplied all the info i could gather, pop up addys and what they were for , what others programs had found and Exterminate had missed etc. Within 24 hours i received and email telling me they had updated there system and to download it. I rescanned the system and it deleted all the previous locked files.
Darksma and Vundo downloader trojans have not done their re appearing act since and my comp is running normal again.

It's worth remembering the addy or downloading it to see what it finds. I had no problems doing so in anyway with this program. They done what they said they would on there web site in under the time frame.

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.
