IntelligentAdvisor is a fraudulent anti-spyware application designed to lure gullible computer users out of their money by using scare tactics. IntelligentAdvisor may be brought into your machine by a Zlob.Trojan that may be downloaded bundled in a fake video codec or can be installed through the MP3z program. As soon as IntelligentAdvisor is installed, it will display false error notifications of virus threats it "found" on your computer. IntelligentAdvisor will then prompt you to purchase its full version in order to eliminate these non-existent threats. It is strongly recommended to remove IntelligentAdvisor from your computer system with no hesitation.
