Aside from the way Spyware Protection 2009 gets into your computer, read how Spyware Protection 2009's other functions are no better:

  • Spyware Protection 2009's scanning results will always show high levels of infection, because Spyware Protection 2009 didn't try to scan your computer in the first place!

  • You'll also be forced to deal with a series of unusual desktop alerts and errors with worrisome content. These are also caused by Spyware Protection 2009 or related malware, and should be ignored just as much as you would ignore Spyware Protection 2009's scan results.
