Spy Sheriff review

Spy Sheriff review

Spy Sheriff uses ridiculous false positives. We have tested it on absolutely clean PC. System scan took only 8 seconds. During it the application managed to find 9 malicious programs, including two keyloggers, two flooders, two network attack tools, one mail bomber, a nuker and an adware. The program didn't provide adequate information about detected parasites and their exact location. Apparently Spy Sheriff doesn't check the system at all. See screenshot below.

Spy Sheriff refuses to remove any malware it found and asks to purchase full version. Nevertheless, its vendors call it a trial. As you know, the real trial includes full functionality, but works only limited time. Free version of Spy Sheriff definitely is not a trial. See another screenshot.

Some users report that Spy Sheriff secretly installs third-party software that damages the system and violates their privacy. Security experts say that Spy Sheriff is a parasite itself. You should take a look on this page: http://www.lavasoftresearch.com/spywareno.shtml

The program is promoted with the help of aggressive and deceptive advertisements. It is often installed by various trojans and through some web browser exploits.

Spy Sheriff is the same program as SpywareNo! and SpyDemolisher. It uses exact spyware definitions database, has identical interface and produces terribly similar results.

Web sites associated with Spy Sheriff are www.spysheriff.com and www.spyware-cash.com.

Avoid purchasing and using this product!

I somehow got it and my virus scanner picked up on a trojan in a file called NCLABYDLL.DLL
It seems like spy sheriff plants infected files on your PC then wants you to purchase the program to remove the files. I used Yahoo anti spy it it did great. I was getting a blue error screen when I tried to open my internet explorer. The program set my home page to Secure32.html. When the page opened it gave you three options. One was to purchase thier software to remove the infected file. I got it out and I wish I could get my hands on whoever is responsible. It took a while to figure out waht to do but now I seem to be clean.

SpySheriff Disables TaskMan, and it starts a flurry of activity on your machine that is hard to keep up with. You must quickly get to the System Restore and order a restore to a recent checkpoint. , before it corrupts the System Restore calendar, rendering THAT useless.
Before you ask about legal action, you should be more careful what sites you visit.

I was hit by SpySheriif last week and like everyone else despaired of the damage to my system ! Luckily, I had installed Norton GoBack just only a few weeks ago, and it was a doddle to recover all my hard disks to the restore point state prior to the the infection. Now all the SpySheriff garbage is consigned to oblivion, and I am a happy bunny once more - Phew ! That was close shave !

When running anti-spyware utilities (e.g. Spy Sweeper) and when editing the registry be sure to logon as each individual user to ensure you delete all traces

Is what this company does not illegal? Can anything be done about this ( I cant even think of an appropriate name for these people!) But thank you all for posting your fixes to this problem I was at a loss, I make desktop themes and coudnt test them or anything. It is just like that movie The Net. That man makes viruses that only his software can fix. Anyway thanks to all.
