Exterminate It! Antimalware


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


Exterminate It is just a superior product. I was having all kinds of problems with Zlob.Fam, MyWebSearch and TrojanSpy.Win32.DKS. Even Norton could not get rid of them. I tried all knids of ways to get rid of them and nothing worked. This save me so much time and as well as reformatting and recovering my PC.
Thank you so much and I will reccommend your product to all of friends.
