Privacy Commander - How to remove?
What is Privacy Commander?
Privacy Commander is a new rogue registry cleaner – a fake privacy protector, which uses scare tactics to get the user to purchase it’s "licensed version". This parasite usually enters the system by using the infamous Zlob trojan, which exploits browser security holes, it can, however, be manually downloaded and installed just as well.
Once inside and active, Privacy Commander will flood the user with popups and fake system notifications, supposedly to "inform" him of files, that may be dangerous to his privacy, present on the system. It is most likely that these threats do not actually exist, and if they do, it’s by sheer coincidence. Privacy Commander has neither the ability to detect threats, nor remove them, but will nevertheless try to trick the user by providing falsified system scan reports, and claiming that the "risks" can be removed by the use of it’s "licensed version", which is no more functional than the trial.
Privacy-commander.com, the home of this parasite, features the all too familliar mix of exaggerated claims concerning the maliciousness of registry errors, cookies, temporary internet files, and undeserved self-praise. The amazing lack of content and contact details are enough to destroy credibillity, but there are also other things, which should be thought of as suspicious by most people. The abundance of grammar mistakes and the illegitimate payment system, for example. As if that’s not enough, the website is registered to a "Khris Kaspersky" (if that rings a bell), who lives in Cuba (on Cuba street, to be even more precise) and who can be reached by dialing the number "+000.000000".
Privacy Commander is a scam and should be treated as such: do NOT download or buy it and block it’s homepage using your HOSTS file.
