Do you know what SpyDestroy is?
SpyDestroy or Spy Destroy, was found to be a computer parasite that is extremely dangerous to have present on your computer. SpyDestroy is known to be spread through Trojan or other malware infections. One of the biggest issues of SpyDestroy is that not many programs are able to remove it.
SpyDestroy clearly is a Destroyer so it has the right name. Although you may find that SpyDestroy is advertised as a program that can get rid of spyware and adware, according to spydestroy.com, it does neither. SpyDestroy is a useless program for removing any type of malware from any computer.
In non-techie terms: SpyDestroy should never be downloaded, installed or purchased under any circumstances. SpyDestroy seems to be much more dangerous than other rogue applications in that it may go undetected for a great deal of time while malicious actions may be performed without your consent.
