Spyware Quake – a rogue security program that shows fake virus infection alerts
Spyware Quake is a corrupt anti-spyware program illegally installed on user computers by dangerous trojans, through malicious advertisements, and via certain exploits. Evidently, it does not enter users' machines on purposes – they are rather tricked into installing it, or it is implemented in the background automatically. This application is not only a weak spyware remover but also a clone of the infamous SpyAxe, SpywareStrike, and SpyFalcon parasites.

Rogue software uses rogue operation techniques
We have carefully tested Spyware Quake 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 detect most threats and 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 does not take more than 2 minutes. 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 2 seconds! As you know, currently, there is no such spyware remover capable of thoroughly checking the system so quickly. This means that Spyware Quake cannot be trusted. The application refuses to remove any parasites it finds and asks to register and purchase the full version. Some Spyware Quake components like Active Guard, the real-time monitor are also disabled.
The program is illegally distributed with the help of dangerous parasites, malicious advertisements, and certain exploits. In our opinion, Spyware Quake's 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 SpywareQuake parasite, which displays fake warning messages, downloads the corrupt spyware remover, and hijacks the web browser.
Spyware Quake is a clone of SpyAxe, SpywareStrike, and SpyFalcon. It has a resembling interface and consists of terribly similar components.
