Mycashbag – Not Spyzooka’s Bag
Spyzooka knows that coming across cookies and adware can be confusing. In the case of Mycashbag, the name says it all. This self-proclamation sends alarms off right away. Mycashbag is synonymous with, “give me your money.”
If you have come here looking for more information on Mycashbag, you already know it is something you don’t want. You have probably either noticed incessant pop-ups that won’t go away, or you have an anti-spyware program that shows this adware in the scan. If you already have anti-spyware on your computer and the pop-ups won’t stop, you may have rogue (fake) anti-spyware. Other tell-tale signs that spyware and adware are on your computer are browser hijacking, unwanted toolbars, unrelated search page results, and security settings disabled.
Many of these “free” scans are not free at all. If you are offered an unsolicited free scan through a pop-up, the chances are good that you just downloaded spyware. These programs charge you money, but don’t actually carry through on the product. They are actually a surveillance system that allows 3rd party affiliates to view your information. Adware such as mycashbag often comes attached to these products. It is a 3rd party advertisement that will watch all your browsing habits. Then they will gear their advertisements to your tastes. Some people say that this type of tracking is helpful. Most of these people are probably in marketing.
There are some anti-spyware companies that offer real products. However, they are not free of human error. They employ a team of researchers to track the latest trends in adware and spyware. These programs tend to only get as much as 60-90% of the problem. I laugh when I think about the countless times people come to me telling me that they are running three or four programs and they still can’t get rid of Mycashbag. When a program misses even one file, it is useless. Adware is designed to regenerate quickly.
To prevent further infection, do your research and pick a reputable spyware program that belongs to the Better Business Bureau (there aren’t many, so this should be easy). Anti-spyware programs that win recognition or rewards are also hard to come by. You can set up your browser to reject all 3rd party cookies. It is also a good idea to delete your browsing history after a session online. Update Windows security settings often. This may seem obvious, but you wouldn’t believe how easily this gets overlooked.
