    This can be really annoying. My PC was infected with MaCatte Antivirus 2009 last week. I am using Mozilla Firefox and every time I’m opening it, MaCatte Antivirus 2009 redirects me to it’s page. My computer was working slowly and I didn’t know what to do. I asked on forums and many persons told me to try SpyZooka. I found here some great information and I get rid of MaCatte Antivirus 2009. Thank you very much!
