We Do Not Gest! Innovagest Is Bad!
You are expecting to read an article on Innovagest rogue spyware, right? Well, here’s a heads up for you: Innovagest – aka Innovagest 2000 and Innovagest 2000 S.L. – isn’t a rogue spyware. It’s even worse. It’s a rogue spyware developer company. We can hit a bunch of nasty programs all in one shot here: SpyDeface, XP Antivirus 2008 (Unregistered Version), ContraVirus 2007, and PestTrap. Any of those sound familiar? They are all ‘anti-spyware’ programs released by Innovagest.
Innovagest claims to provide users with ‘the ultimate PC protection software’. Somehow we think this claim falls quite a bit short of its goal. As a matter of fact, the claim falls on the wrong side of the fence all together. Every program listed here in this article developed by Innovgest is a rogue spyware program. The only thing they manage to get rid of is money from the pockets of the people who fall prey.
Rogue spyware programs all work the same. They scan your computer and then give you a report stating that your computer is infected with viruses, spyware, and malware. These reports are grossly over exaggerated and they are usually enough to scare the daylights out of the uninformed computer user. When this happens, the user falls into the trap of believing that the advertised Innovagest software is the only software that can remove the malware, viruses, and spyware from your computer. They purchase the program and then like an old episode of television’s ‘Batman’, BAM! You’re infected.
Your troubles are only beginning. Once the fully registered program is on your system, you are going to have one heck of a time getting it back off the system. It will not allow you to use the Windows Add/Remove tool to take the program off the computer and you will have to use a legitimate anti-spyware program like ZookaWare PC Cleaner to remove it from your system. It will also run in the background and take advantage of your systems vulnerabilities to better itself. It will update itself, install other spyware and malware programs, and eventually will bog down your system to the point that it permanently freezes up. Additionally, when you attempt to contact Innovagest 2000, you will get your message back, bounced as ‘user unknown’.
So let’s review just what Innovgest offers you:
1. A program that lies to you about the amount of spyware, viruses, and malware that is on your system.
2. A program that takes advantage of your systems vulnerabilities and utilizes them to add more spyware, malware and viruses to your system.
3. Your wallet considerably lighter as you get ripped off the cost of the program.
4. No customer service because the company – in this case Innovagest 2000 – is ‘user unknown’.
5. A computer that becomes completely unstable that will ultimately fail and freeze up to the point where it makes a great base for your garden birdbath.
We have one thing to say to you: stay away from Innovagest 2000 S.L. programs. If you think you have one of them on your computer system, get a legitimate anti-spyware program like ZookaWare PC Cleaner and run it immediately. It will find the files that belong to the rogue program and remove them for you. If you are an advanced computer user, you could remove the files one by one but it is not recommended.
After you remove the rogue program, run your anti-virus program and clear all of the viruses from your system. Rogue anti-spyware programs traditionally sneak onto your computer by piggy-backing a Trojan virus you may not realize has infected your system.
