VirusEffaceur is a rogue anti-spyware application that is usually brought to your computer with the help of various Trojans, exploiting browser security loopholes. As soon as VirusEffaceur is installed, it will display fake notifications of non-existent threats, in order to scare you into buying the “full version” of the program. VirusEffaceur will not only try to deceive you by insisting of purchasing the fake software, but may also slow down your computer processes severely. VirusEffaceur may also prove to be very difficult or even impossible to dispose of manually.
