Dcspyware.com Description

Dcspyware.com is a malicious browser hijacker that promotes the rogue security application called Total PC Defender 2010. Dcspyware.com enters a PC with the help of a Trojan that can modify a victim's Hosts file resulting in the victim's browser being redirected to Dcspyware.com. Once a victim has landed on Dcspyware.com, he/she will be presented with a fake online system scan, pop-ups and security warnings claiming that the system is infected and the "full version" of Total PC Defender 2010 needs to be purchased in order to remove all the infections. Do not believe any notifications and reports displayed by Dcspyware.com or Total PC Defender 2010; they are all fabricated.
