Malware Alarm Exposed?

Updated on May 20, 2008

Quickly and Safely Remove Malware Alarm

Malware Alarm is a class of spyware known as "rogue antispyware." Rogue antispyware are spyware programs that disguise themselves as antispyware software.

Malware Alarm is installed on your computer through the Zlob trojan.

Simply put, Malware Alarm invades your computer without you knowing it. Malware Alarm displays fake security alerts to trick you into buying their so called "antispyware software" when they really are spyware.

Malware Alarm symptoms include:

1. Internet Explorer settings are changed and you're constantly redirected to the site. Sometimes you will also be sent to other rogue antispyware sites and tricked into buying their software.

2. Malware Alarm will download other spyware onto your pc.

3. Malware Alarm displays popups to trick you into purchasing their software

4. Icons on your pc screen giving you fake warnings about spyware detected on your pc.

5. When you click on the warning box on your screen Malware Alarm opens their site and will try to install more spyware on your pc without your consent.

I don't recommend manually removing Malware Alarm because you will not be able to manually remove all the files associated with it. And if you remove the wrong files it may damage your computer.

Malware Alarm imbeds itself in your computer so deep that some antispyware software can't remove it. If some antispyware software can't remove it I don't recommend the average computer user attempt to remove it manually.

How to remove your Malware Alarm spyware infection...

I recommend buying a legitimate antispyware program to remove your Malware Alarm infection. Here are the features I look for when rating antispyware software:

100% Spyware Removal Guarantee: Independent testing by leading sources like PC World magazine confirms that no antispyware software can remove all your spyware on the first scan. That's why it's important to choose antispyware software that provides you with a free custom update to remove all your spyware if it wasn't removed on the first scan.

Simple to use: It should be simple to use and automate common tasks like scanning and downloading updates.

Highly awarded: Antispyware software should display legitimate awards they've won from independent software rating organizations.

Better Business Bureau member: With so many antispyware scams on the internet (like Malware Alarm) I only recommend buying from a company that belongs to the BBB. In order to be a BBB member a company must be in business for at least one year and satisfactorily resolve any customer complaints.

Guard feature: Quality antispyware software will have an extensive guard system to prevent spyware from infecting your pc.

Spyware Database Updates: with new spyware being released constantly a good spyware remover should download new updates automatically at least once per day.

The only antispyware software that I've found that meets all the above criteria is SpyZooka. SpyZooka is the only company that guarantees 100% spyware removal.

      Tangled with this bastard program over a year ago. It stopped me from accessing all sites that would have downloaded anti-virus programs, kept giving me all these annoying pop-ups. Repeatedly asked me for my email address. When I didn't give that out after a week Malware committed suicide and tried to take my computer's OS with it. Still don't know why, but somehow my computer survived, kept working for a month afterwards. Knew it was on its last legs when Internet Explorer kept popping up while I was in Microsoft Word.

      A year later, and I would still like to find Dee and the rest of these SOBs and do something creative with them. I was thinking of stuffing them inside an oversized dog crate with a starving pit bull or a hungry boa constrictor, but that would be unfair to the dog or the snake.

      Sheesh. I feel so bad for people who buy that fake-out program. I was just searching in google "why do assholes malware" because I was pissed. The worst I got on my CPU are my stories that are very important to me. I'm waaay to paranoid about them and worry about my computer being infected with some secret little bug. I swear to god these people should be castrated (without medicine) and incenerated alive. Lol I can be violent.

      Plus, Steve deserves an A+ for showing that #. Kudos, man

      This is a nightmare if you get it. It wil continue to download mre trojans and keyloggers until you remove it. The best thing you can do is te following:

      1) Remove anything related from Add/Remove Programs

      2) Download, install, update and run Spybot Search And Destroy

      3) Search for an application called smitfraudfix. Download it, run t in safe mode, reboot and you should have your system back

      Good luck

      Running PC Checkup from my Verizon DSL. Pretty sure got Malwaew Alarm instead! This is a Scam just as bad as if the guy who changed your engine oil refiled with diesel fuel then tried to charge you a couple thousand bucks to replace the engine when it blew up! As much as I want government out of the internet; This sort of thing could easly be stopped by FORCING the credit card/banks to give us our money back DOUBLE if they process it for a company like this on a FRAUD list.

      Then lots of well trained people will be avaiable when Bush is finally gone. What really need is a Mercenary group that every computer user gives maybe $2.00 a month to. They find companies like this; Make the owners Paraplegics and break the programer's thumbs (wasn't can't use the space bar to write code in some movie?). PROBLEM SOLVED!!!

      I am a senior, not computer savvy, but Malware popped up and said my pc was in danger; they told me the package was $49.95 and charged me $80.00. I am calling my credit card company, the better business bureau,, my congressman and whoever else can get them gone..they are in my system because I simply did not know until I received a popup from microsoft; telling me that Malware was malicious. I can not afford to lose $80. on a fixed income.

      Was surfing the net when this thing popped up randomly. Had the same problem as other users trying to get get out. Nortan managed to block it. Hopefully I'm not infected and this company needs to find some other way to make money cuz they're scamming ppl. How do they get a hold of your credit card information cuz I hope they didn't get a hold of mine.

      Well, I have Mac and using Safari, this came up mostly Windows-looking BUT with the Safari icon and what looks like the standard little OSX info box with the "losenges" one highlighted blue you know? So be careful! Although, if you are here, you have probably seen it and dismissed or subscribed to it.

      Same problems as all of you, but upon looking up the WhoIs information on their domain name, I have found the following information:

      Administrative Contact:PAYTECH INCPAYTECH INC (,H9H1Y9CATel. +800.7289670

      If you are anything like me, I think a flood of phone calls and emails may serve to piss them off a little, but a call to your local congressman or court officer may help out a bit. Let's take these bastards down. Class action lawsuit, anyone?

      My computer surfing was hijacked.. by their advertisement. If the product is as GOOD as AVG or ADAware(freebie sites) then it shouldn't have to hijack my system to advertise!

      I'm not a competitor.. I am a customer and even small and big business do not have to force a good product on anybody.

      These are the same complaints, different people, smale opinion. I draw the conclusion Dee either your a tewl, a pawn.. or just a good con artist... but there is no good name to describe you regardless.

      The really stupid thing is, this "Malware Alarm" came up in my firefox browser with all the looks if Windows XP and the looks of a genuine program, it even found several "threats" and advised me to download and install, I use Linux and it resembles nothing like Windows XP, plus it is very difficult to get malware and viruses on a Linux computer. what a bunch of morons those programmers are.

      What's sad is that it tried to install on my Linux computer. Luckily the graphics for Malware are all standard Windows XP graphics, so they were easy to tell from "real" messages from my OS.

      I just hope somebody eventually breaks that stupid webpage and everything associated with it. We don't need garbage like this on the 'net.
