Adware Patrol is a malicious anti-spyware application that may be downloaded and installed by a Trojan through browser security cracks, or may be downloaded directly from www.adwarepatrol.com. After Adware Patrol is executed, it will display misleading warning messages stating that your computer is infected with dangerous parasites. Adware Patrol will then offer to dispose of the threats it "detected", if you purchase the full version of the program. Both Adware Patrol and the messages it displays are fraudulent. It is strongly recommended to remove Adware Patrol from your machine as soon as possible.
