Do Not Install AntiMalware2009!
Have you ever turned on your computer and noticed one day that it has a mind of its own? Chance are you could have some form of malware (malicious software) on your computer which includes a computer virus, a worm, Trojan horse, spyware or any other software with the intent to corrupt your computer. More malicious software is available now than ever before but luckily ZookaWare PC Cleaner is available to help. One very destructive piece of software that appears as if it is helping you but is actually harming your computer is AntiMalware2009. It misleads you by popping up numerous warnings of infections and then offers to scan your computer online. After the scan completes it suggests you to download AntiMalware2009. Once you download the software, it warns you of many fake infections and then scares you into buying a license for the software. AntiMalware2009 clones itself after eAntiVirusPro and XP Protector 2009 and usually forces itself onto your computer.
After AntiMalware2009 has been installed on your computer you will notice very strange behavior.

This is AntiMalware2009’s way of scaring you into believing that you do in fact have problems with their computer. Now that they’ve gotten you worried, they’re hoping that you will feel pressured to buy a license to their software. When you open up Internet Explorer, it will give you a popup that says it has blocked the site due to malware and will direct you immediately to their rogue website. Worst of all you will notice very slow CPU performance as AntiMalware2009 was built very poorly and sits heavy on your CPU.
If you do have this software on your computer make sure that you remove it immediately. However, if you’re not sure if this software is on your computer go to the “Add/Remove Programs” utility and check to see if it exists there. Even after you uninstall the program there is a good chance that many hidden files will still exists on your hard drive so it’s best to go to a Spyware provider you trust and use their software to remove all files associated to AntiMalware2009.
