ScreenshotTrustWarrior is a fake anti-spyware program that uses aggressive techniques to trick computer users into purchasing a full version of the TrustWarrior application. TrustWarrior comes from the same family of rogues SoftSafeness and WiniGuard. TrustWarrior, after installed, is able to display a multitude of fake alert messages and conduct system scans that return fabricated results. TrustWarrior will not detect or rid your system of spyware. Detection and removal of TrustWarrior has proven to be difficult to perform manually in many cases.

    I have just got rid of a fake anti spy-ware exactly the same as pictured above, but called trustfighter, it directs you to buy full anti spyware and malware remover. As im in the uk i filled in the form with my debit card and it wouldnt accept payment, it wanted a credit card but im still worried as i gave all my details for my debit card. Fortunately i didnt spend the $49.99 asking price and went and bought norton 360 from the shops this still took 48 hrs to rid me of these dreadfully frightening viruses. The site looks so real as if from microsoft and your so desperate for help as it takes over the whole computer. Please be aware people i only opened an attachment in an email from a friend. Happy and safe computing and thanks, i think your site is so helpful i wouldnt have known it was fake without sites like yours. Keep up the good work yours, Barry
