Do you know what Spy-Kill is?
Spy-Kill (SpyKill) is one of those dangerous programs that pretends to provide "complete protection against spyware". Spy-Kill does not provide any type of protection nor will it remove spyware or parasites from your computer.
Spy-Kill cannot be trusted. Spy-Kill may come from a Trojan horse such as Zlob where it is installed automatically and starts displaying popups or advertisements to purchase the Spy-Kill program. Spy-Kill can be downloaded and installed directly from the www.Spy-Kill.com web page which should never be visited.
In non-techie terms:
Do not ever purchase or even install Spy-Kill for any reason. Spy-Kill performs malicious tactics to get computer users to waste their money on the full version of Spy-Kill. Because Spy-Kill is useless it should not be trusted to be downloaded or installed on your system unless you do not mind having a large number of annoying popups great you when you are trying to work.
