Win32.MoonPie

The author of pleasant sounding spyware program, Win32.MoonPie, is Simon Moon.  He proudly named all of his infections after himself.  As pleasant as these programs sound, they are nothing but trouble for your system.  Created in June of 2001, Win32.MoonPie will make its way into your system through various shareware and freeware programs.  It may also attempt to infiltrate through a massive spam e-mail campaign. Difficult to detect by design, this contagion will run secretly because it hides its processes and files.

Recommended Action:
Remove at once.

Manual removing can be painstaking and complicated.  However, if you choose to do it, the process requires that you stop all of the running processes that are running in memory.  This can be done from Task Manager.  Then delete the registry values and remaining files related to the program.  If you want to save yourself the headache, ZookaWare PC Cleaner is a safer option.  ZookaWare PC Cleaner can eliminate all spyware hidden on your PC and its proprietary system can keep you protected from here on out.

    I have had SpyZooka installed on all three of my home computers for a couple months now and I have to admit I have become a big fan.
    All in all I am very pleased with this and would recommend it to anyone for home use!
