How to remove Malware Catcher?
What is Malware Catcher?
Malware Catcher is a rogue anti-spyware program – a fake spyware remover, which uses the infamous Zlob trojan to infect systems. This parasite relies on misleading advertising to trick the user into purchasing Malware Catcher’s “licensed version”, which is no more functional than the so-called trial.
Upon entering the system, Malware Catcher will flood the user with popups and fake system notifications, supposedly to inform him of an infection or multiple infections present on the system. While this information may coincidentally be true, Malware Catcher has neither the ability to detect nor remove spyware, and should therefore be ignored. Much like any other rogue, Malware Catcher will perform fake system scans, which produce greatly exaggerated results. It will also significantly decrease system performance.
Malware Catcher is a scam and should be treated as such: do NOT download or buy it and block it’s homepage using your HOSTS file.
