Exterminate It! Antimalware


Known threats:700,086 Last Update:March 16, 12:51


My computer worked insanely slow and I got all sorts of silly advertisement whenever I got onto the Internet. At a friend’s advice, I gave Exterminate-It a try and was glad that I did!

I scanned and kicked out all that adware that’d caused my PC to be so slow!

My PC is back to normal speed and I haven’t had trouble with unwanted ads ever since.

Keep up the good work!
