Testimonials

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.

A trojan is a program that is disguised as legitimate software but is designed to carry out some harmful actions on the infected computer.

These days trojans are very common. Trojans are divided into a number different categories based on their function or type of damage.

Spyware

Spyware is designed to gather data from a computer and transfer it to a third party without the consent or knowledge of the computer’s owner. This includes collecting confidential information (passwords, credit card numbers, PIN numbers, etc.), monitoring key strokes, gathering e-mail addresses, or tracking surfing habits. Such resource-consuming activities slow down the system and generally impact the computer’s performance.

“Spyware” is an umbrella term for a diverse group of malware-related programs, rather than a clear-cut category. Most spyware definitions apply not only to adware, pornware and ‘riskware’ programs, but to many trojans as well.

Be Aware of the Following Spyware Threats:

JanNet, TrojanSpy.Win32.Hookey, SpyMyPc.Pro, Loper, Belcaro.GoldenRetriever.
