SpyCrush is a corrupt anti-spyware program illegally installed to user computers by widely spread trojans, through malicious advertisements and via numerous exploits. This application is not only a weak spyware remover, but also a clone of the infamous rogues.
We have carefully tested SpyCrush on several computers including absolutely clean machines and PCs infected with spyware and adware parasites. Test results revealed that although the program does not produce false positives and really finds some malicious parasites, it cannot completely eliminate most prevalent infections, and therefore is definitely unable to protect user privacy and system security.
Full System Scan performed on a regular modern computer storing hundreds of gigabytes of various data did not take more than one minute. The program does not check all the files, but searches only for known malware, which signatures are in its spyware definitions database. Quick Scan requires even less – only two seconds! As you know, currently, there is no such spyware remover capable of thoroughly checking the system so quickly, and this means that SpyCrush cannot be trusted.
The program uses old spyware definitions database, which dates back to June, 2006. The update function is available, but it doesn’t work as intended.
The application refuses to remove any parasites it finds and asks to register and purchase the full version. Active Guard, SpyCrush real-time monitor, is also disabled.
SpyCrush is a clone of VirusBurst, another rogue anti-spyware. Both programs have very similar look, use identical parasite definitions databases and consist of terribly similar components. Furthermore, SpyCrush end user license agreement (EULA) is a complete copy of VirusBurst’s EULA.
SpyCrush is also classified as a clone of SpyAxe, Spyware Strike, Spy Falcon, SpyHeal, VirusBlast, Titan Shield, Spyware Sheriff, AntiSpyware Soldier, VirusBursters and others.
The program is illegally distributed with the help of widely spread parasites, malicious advertisements and numerous exploits. In our opinion, SpyCrush vendor and its affiliates must be held fully responsible for such issues. We have already received user complaints stating that their computers are infected with the SpyCrush parasite, which displays fake warning messages, downloads the corrupt spyware remover and hijacks the web browser.
