What is SpywareQuake?
SpywareQuake is the latest variant of rogue programs using adware and false alert messages to sell their product. Other variants were known as SpyAxe, SpywareStrike and SpyFalcon. SpywareQuake is promoted on its homepage as a solution to help users detect and remove spyware and malware from their PCs. It is actually a rogue antispyware program that uses pop-ups alerting the user about a critical system error and virus activities. The pop-up is actually an advertisement designed to scare the user into purchasing SpywareQuake. There is no system error or virus infection, except for the Trojan that may have been installed to download SpywareQuake's adware.
SpywareQuake's adware program produces the fake alert messages. To fix this problem, the adware program as well as any possible installers and downloader Trojans that may be connected with it need to be found and removed from your PC.
