A list of all the Anti-Spyware product scam sites

Updated on July 13, 2008
Watch out for this evil software!
Watch out for this evil software!

 

 

It's hard to believe that numerically speaking, the vast majority of software available on the web that is supposedly designed to rid your systems of malware, spyware and adware, is actually malware, spyware or adware. The general web public must be highly naive to fall for these sorts of crazy come-ons, but it does seem that there is never any lack of business flowing to these out and out scam artist sites.

There are various and completely functional and legitimate free anti-spyware scanners:

  • Ad-aware Personal Edition
  • AVG Anti-Spyware
  • Spybot Search & Destroy
  • SUPERAntiSpyware
  • Windows Defender

As there are superlative free online anti-virus scanners:

  • BitDefender
  • Command on Demand
  • eTrust AntiVirus
  • Ewido Online Scan
  • McAfee FreeScan
  • Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool
  • Panda ActiveScan
  • ScanOnline
  • Trend Micro Anti-Spyware for the Web
  • Trend Micro HouseCall
  • Web Scanner

However, all of the sites listed below to some degree engage in deceptive advertising, but some will give you false positives, others will hijack your browser or even your desktop, while the worst of the lot will plant all sorts of malware, spyware, viruses and trojans on your hard drive. Before falling prey to any email or pop up advertisement which claims that such and such a software will rid your system of such and such a peril, just do a "find" function on this page with the URL that you're being tempted into visiting. If it shows up on this page under this line, then avoid at all costs!

      Hi Hal,

      I'm the owner of RebrandSoftware.com. I created Ad-Purge years ago but it was never a malicous product: it just wasn't very good and was incorrectly labeled as rogue. Since I discontinued it in 2008, and currently have tons of highly rated apps on the Mac App Store, could you please check my website and if you agree that it is safe remove it from this hub? If you have any questions I am more than happy to help, let me know.

      -Mike

      Scammers are everywhere. People should learn to question EVERYTHING that they are pitched to ensure that it adheres to VERY STRICT standards of legitimacy!

      It's hard to believe how many people got trapped by this scams. I received about half a dozen emails from customers who were ripped off by fake antispyware ads.

      It is very difficult to make a legal charge stick against these people unfortunately.

      There are hundreds of them!!

      I hope I never buy any of them.

      Thanks for the information.

      Any legal action taking against them?

      I was wondering

      Yes, everyone is threatened by spyware, and a remarkably small percentage of computer users are fully aware of the extent of the threat!

      interesting Hub. Very informative and certainly educational. However, to learn or not to learn regarding spyware is more a necessity than a luxury.
