How to remove IEAntiSpyware?
What is IEAntiSpyware?
IEAntiSpyware is one of the latest rogue anti-spyware threats on the Net (as of May, 2008). As you can guess from the name, this program should, hypothetically, help you protect your Internet Explorer web browser (and, consequently, your system) from spyware. However, its name is the only aspect of protection, as the rest is pure scam and infection.
After you click the new little flashing shield icon on your desktop, you will be offered a "free" spyware scan. While the scan and the program may look legitimate enough to try, the actual level of IEAntiSpyware efficiency is nil. All the imaginary threats it detects are either completely illusory, or created by IEAntiSpyware itself. After you read the bogus scan report, you will be offered to purchase the "full" version of IEAntiSpyware in order to remove the false threats.
The only difference between the free and the full versions is that in the "full" version, IEAntiSpyware shows an animated removal procedure, which is as ill-effective as the "free" scan. If you get infected by IEAntiSpyware, be sure to use our manual removal instructions or download our spyware removal tool if necessary.

Then, IEAntiSpyware offers to buy the full version to fix these false errors. If the user agrees, IEAntiSpyware does not only fix the errors, but it also takes the user’s money and may even install additional spyware into the victim’s computer.
