How ZookaWare Started

The ZookaWare idea started in 2004 after an obnoxious spyware infection plagued our founder. Worse, back then and still today antivirus and antispyware fail to remove infections. And their "support" can be as maddening as the infection itself.

In 2004 we launched antispyware software SpyZooka.com (Spyware + Bazooka) with a 100% spyware removal guarantee. SpyZooka won over 100 5 star awards. More importantly customers worldwide love their spyware free computers.

In 2016 SpyZooka evolved into ZookaWare PC Cleaner. It removes your spyware and optimizes your PC simultaneously! Have a question? Our inhouse US based support team is open 24/7 through phone, live chat and email!
