by Gabriel E. Hall - - | Type: Corrupt Anti-Spyware

VirusRescue is a corrupt anti-malware program illegally installed to user computers by widely spread trojans and through numerous exploits. This application is actually weak virus and spyware remover unable to disinfect even a regular system, not to mention badly infected PCs. That’s why its vendor and affiliates promote the product with the help of prevalent parasites.

We have carefully tested VirusRescue on several computers including absolutely clean machines and PCs infected with viruses, trojans, backdoors, spyware and adware parasites. Test results revealed that although the program does not produce any significant false positives (some can still be noticed), and really detects some malicious threats, it cannot completely eliminate most prevalent infections, and therefore is definitely unable to defend user privacy and system security.

The free version refuses to remove any parasites it finds and asks to register and purchase the full product.

The program is illegally distributed with the help of widely spread parasites and numerous exploits. In our opinion, the VirusRescue 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 VirusRescue parasite, which displays exaggerated warning messages, shows fake alerts, downloads corrupt anti-malware program and hijacks the web browser.

VirusRescue seems to be related to Spyware Strike and Spy Falcon, the infamous rogues illegally distributed in the same way as VirusRescue.

DO NOT buy this product! AVOID VirusRescue at all costs!
