Moe MoneyMaker – Not a Match for ZookaWare PC Cleaner
Today we are going to talk about Moe MoneyMaker, which is three kinds of threat rolled into one. We are dealing with spyware, adware, and a browser hijacker. The means on a very basic level that we have a program that floods you with advertisements, collects information on you, and takes control of your Web browser.
Moe MoneyMaker can get onto your computer one of three ways. The first way is as part of a bundle. This means that you downloaded something and Moe MoneyMaker hitched a ride onto your computer with it. When you installed that program, Moe MoneyMaker was installed at the same time. The second way is through a drive-by installation. What that means is that you visited a certain Web site and Moe MoneyMaker installed itself onto your computer without your knowledge or permission. The third way is through deceptive pop-ups. These pop-ups pretend to be a Windows message or alert.
Once installed, Moe MoneyMaker will track your Web browsing habits and personal information while you are online. It will then launch targeted pop-ups that relate to the information that has been gathered. You will also be faced with pop-ups that offer rebates for goods or services it detects on the Web sites visited.
That may not seem too bad, but it gets worse. Moe MoneyMaker is able to block or uninstall programs that interfere with its activities. It can disable your security tools and leave your computer without any protection.
Removal of such a dangerous program is required. Unfortunately, uninstalling via Add/Remove Programs does not work. You have to look for an outside source to remove Moe MoneyMaker. What you need is an anti-spyware program. The problem is that most only remove 80-90% of an infection. That will leave Moe MoneyMaker to reinstall itself on start up. Fortunately, there is a newcomer to the world of anti-spyware that gives you a 100% removal guarantee. This program is ZookaWare PC Cleaner. Not only do you get the 100% removal guarantee, but ZookaWare PC Cleaner is simple to use compared to other programs on the market.
