SpywareStrike is a rogue anti-spyware programs using trojan horses to infect computers without the users knowledge or consent. The trojans are gaining access to PCs by exploiting a recently discovered security vulnerability in Windows Meta Files (WMF). Simply visiting a website or following an email link can infect your PC with the trojan. Microsoft has released a patch for this problem, which will prevent future infections but will not remove the existing infections. If you have Windows Automatic Updates you should already have the patch installed, otherwise you can manually download the patch from the Microsoft website.
SpywareStrike's trojan horse can display popups which prompt the user to download SpywareStrike with every access to the internet. The alert message is designed to have the appearance of an authentic Windows system alert message, but is really just an advertisement for SpywareStrike. It may also change your web browser's homepage, download other software without your knowledge and can seriously impact on your computer's operating speed.
