FullContext.PadsysAssistant Spyware Profile

FullContext.PadsysAssistant is a spyware program that delivers pop-up ads, and possibly more.  It was first discovered on December 8 of 2006 and is powered by fullcontext.net.

It installs itself on your computer under dubious circumstances.  It is often bundled with other software, particularly the FullContext rogue security tool.  It is presumably there to add credence to FullContext’s claim that your computer is infected with spyware.

FullContext.PadsysAssistant monitors your browsing habits and delivers pop-up advertising based on its findings.  It collects your browsing history and uploads it to fullcontext.net to be processed for targeted ad selection.

Aside from its association with a known rogue security tool, FullContext.PadsysAssistant is a potential security threat as well as being a nuisance.  Your personal information may be compromised, and your computer’s operating speed and stability are negatively affected.  You should remove it immediately with a proven spyware removal tool such as ZookaWare PC Cleaner.

You may see websites that offer manual removal instructions.  This practice is discouraged for the average user due to its highly technical, time consuming and potentially hazardous nature.  ZookaWare PC Cleaner makes the entire process work with the push of a button.

    My computer was infected with FullContext.PadsysAssistant. The problem is that that most antivirus programs don’t detect it. The only one that found and removed it is SpyZooka.
    Thanks!
