SiteAdware is a fake antivirus program that should be removed from PC upon detection. Please use the removal instructions to remove SiteAdware manually for free or use an automatic removal tool. Site Adware is yet another rogue application from the WiniSoft family. It’s distributed through the use of Trojans that usually comes from misleading websites. Rogue applications are also promoted using social engineering methods. Once installed, Trojans download malicious files for the Internet and display fake warnings and pop-ups to make you think that your computer is infected with malware. When SiteAdware is running, it will create several harmless files and later will detect those files as infections or system security threats. The worst thing is that this program then asks to pay for a full version of the program to remove the infections which don’t even exist. And there is only one word for this – scam! So, do not buy this bogus software and uninstall it as soon as possible.
