Flyswat Spyware Profile

Flyswat is a spyware program created by the company called Flyswat.  It was first discovered on August 18 of 2003.  It has to be installed manually on your computer, but there are ways they can get around that.

Flyswat often comes bundled with other software.  Most often, it comes bundled with NetCaptor and NeoPlanet.  Otherwise, it will show a EULA when you’re installing it, but it’s too small to read.

Flyswat’s method of Browser Hijacking is a rarity.  It monitors your browsing, and looks for keywords on the web pages you’re visiting.  It will convert these keywords into hyperlinks to its affiliate sites.  These hyperlinks are highlighted in yellow.

Flyswat uses up a lot of your computer’s resources in order to run.  It can use so much of your memory and bandwidth that your computer slows to a crawl and your browser may crash.  It’s in your best interest to remove it quickly once you’re infected.  ZookaWare PC Cleaner is the best tool available for this.

    I wasn’t so sure that this thing works, but Flyswat made me crazy and I had no idea about what to do. I tried with different programs with no luck… SpyZooka really worked. I’m glad that I give it a chance. Great job!

    I hate Flyswat. I got it recently. I downloaded SpyZooka. It will get rid of Flyswat plus some.
