System61 Spyware Profile

System61 is a Browser Hijacker disguised as a Toolbar add-on for Internet Explorer.  It gathers user information by logging keystroke activity and by taking snapshots of web pages the user is visiting.  It uploads this information to a remote server at www.wow-access.com to deliver user-specific advertising.  This presents a threat to your credit card information and financial account login information.  Advertisements are primarily delivered by browser redirection (hijacking).

System61 uses stealth installation techniques to infect your computer.  You may be infected without realizing it.  Symptoms include a changed home page, the browser navigating to sites you didn’t specify, slow computer speed, and the presence of an unsolicited toolbar at the top of your browser screen.  Wow-access.com has been shut down, and it is assumed that the vending company is out of business.  However, System61 is still considered a threat.

If you are infected with System61, it is recommended that you remove it immediately in the interest of repairing your computer’s performance and protecting your privacy.  While wow-access.com is shut down, other spyware vendors may use System61 for their own promotions.  We recommend using ZookaWare PC Cleaner to remove this application.
