VirusBlast is a corrupt anti-spyware program illegally installed to user computers by trojans, through malicious advertisements and via certain exploits. This application is not only a weak spyware remover, but also a clone of the infamous SpyAxe, Spyware Strike, Spy Falcon and Spyware Quake risks.
We have carefully tested VirusBlast 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 widely spread 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 5 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 10 seconds! As you know, currently, there is no such spyware remover capable of thoroughly checking the system so quickly. This means that VirusBlast cannot be trusted.
The application refuses to remove any parasites it finds and asks to register and purchase the full version. Some VirusBlast components like SpyWall, Pop-Up Blocker, AntiSpam Filter and additional plug-ins are also disabled.
The program is illegally distributed with the help of dangerous parasites, malicious advertisements and certain exploits. In our opinion, VirusBlast’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 VirusBlast parasite, which displays fake warning messages, downloads the corrupt spyware remover and hijacks the web browser.
It must be noted that VirusBlast affects Internet Explorer causing it to delay opening. Furthermore, the corrupt anti-spyware noticeably degrades overall system performance. For instance, it causes Windows Explorer and some running applications to stop responding.
VirusBlast is a modified clone of SpyAxe, Spyware Strike, Spy Falcon, Spyware Quake and SpyHeal. It has a similar interface and consists of analogous components.
