MalwareMonitor – Don’t Fall For This One!
Malwaremonitor is a fake antipsyware program designed to do one thing: separate you from the contents of your wallet! It’s sole purpose in life is to find its way onto your computer, usually via a trojan like Zlob or Vundo, and then sets up shop, starting a “scan” of your computer, (without your permission or even knowledge!) which then delivers up a long lists of supposed “threats” to your machine if not handled immediately. Of course they also have a solution for this, and it’s their handy-dandy antispyware upgrade! Simply whip out your credit card and all your computer security problems are history! In reality, they’ve only just begun.
Malwaremonitor is there for the long term, and won’t be ousted with meager efforts. It has the ability to reconstitute itself, even after many of its files have been deleted. That’s why it’s nearly impossible to do this kind of cleanup by yourself; you’re almost certain to miss a few files, and that would be the same as not doing anything at all, as malwaremonitor will simply spring back to life, like the dreaded enemy on some computer game.
What even worse about malwaremonitor is that it not only poses an enormous annoyance to you and your web experience, but it opens gaping holes in your system’s security as well. Often malwaremonitor will usher in other, even more dangerous spyware and adware applications that can proceed to rob you blind, of information, money and more.
The only certain way to rid your computer of malwaremonitor or any of its friends is to get hold of a good, legitimate, antispyware software solution, one that will seek out and destroy all traces of these programs. The best that I’m aware of is called ZookaWare PC Cleaner, which comes with a 100% spyware removal guarantee.
