ScreenshotMalware Removal BOT, also known as Malware RemovalBot, MalwareRemovalBot or MalwareRemoval Bot, is a rogue anti-spyware program advertised as an effective malware, spyware and adware remover. Malware Removal BOT usually installs in your computer without your knowledge or consent, or you may have downloaded its trial version thinking it would solve your spyware issues. Once installed, Malware Removal BOT will most likely launch its fake system scanner and report a list of spyware infections supposedly found in your computer system. In order to remove these imaginary threats, you'll be pushed to further purchase Malware Removal BOT's full version from a malicious website. Also, you'll be bombarded with fake warning messages "informing" you about fake spyware infections found in your computer.

Malware Removal BOT may cause system crashes, hardware problems, system errors and even computer slowdowns.
