What is VirusBursters?
VirusBursters (aka VirusBurst & VirusBurster) uses a Trojan horse to infect computers with an adware program. The adware program displays pop-up balloon messages warning the user about virus activities which do not actually exist. It is designed to scare the user into purchasing VirusBursters to remove the reported fake virus infection. VirusBursters uses the same deceptive practices as the spyware programs it's supposed to remove. It may also hijack your web browser's homepage and install other programs without your knowledge and consent. To completely remove VirusBursters, you need to make sure that the adware program, Trojan horse and any other associated components have been completely removed from your computer.
