InfeStop is a deceitful anti-spyware application that is commonly brought into your computer by a Trojan that may infiltrate your machine via browser security holes. After InfeStop is installed, it will generate fake error messages and try to scare you into purchasing the full version of the program in order to be able to eliminate the threats it "found".
