Exterminate It! Antimalware


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


Just want to say that apparently your Exterminate It has worked like a charm. I was infected with a most troublesome Malware Trojan that kept replicating every time McAfee found, blocked and removed it... most annoying for several days... until Mr. Google led me to your door. What a God send!

With thanks,

Tom S.
