MalwareBot Description

ScreenshotMalwareBot is a malevolent anti-spyware application. Once inside your system, MalwareBot will perform a bogus scan and display fake notifications of non-existent security and privacy risks that can only be eliminated by the "full version" of the program that you are continuously offered to buy. We strongly recommend NOT to trust MalwareBot since it will not perform any anti-spyware tasks and will only consume your processing power to waste. MalwareBot is a fraudulent application and should be removed from your system without any hesitation.
