Spyware Destroyer Description
Spyware Destroyer is a fake anti-spyware application that uses aggressive notifications to convince computer users to purchase a full version of Spyware Destroyer. Spyware Destroyer may be automatically downloaded and installed from a Trojan horse or malicious website that advertises rogue anti-spyware programs. Once installed, Spyware Destroyer is known to scan your system retuning bogus results. The fake notifications and scan results are used to notify you of imaginary computer infections. The full version of Spyware Destroyer, offered as a solution to the computer infections listed in Spyware Destroyer’s scan results, is not able to remove the parasites.
Spyware Destroyer loads at startup of Windows making it very difficult to manually remove from your system. If Spyware Destroyer is not removed, then it may continue to display annoying popup messages and potentially slow the performance of your system.
