Do you know what Virus Alarm is?
Virus Alarm is a fake and worthless anti-spyware program. Virus Alarm attempts to make computer users believe it is able to scan your system for spyware or parasites and then remove them. Virus Alarm does not effectively do this. Instead, Virus Alarm annoys the hell out of you with popups and alert messages that are all bogus.
Virus Alarm may be related to other rogue anti-spyware programs such as Virus Melt or Virus Doctor which are all preposterous applications. Virus Alarm may come from a Trojan such as Zlob where it could be automatically installed and then automatically start scanning your system.
In non-techie terms:
You do not want Virus Alarm on your computer. It would be better to go spend $40 on a prostitute than purchase Virus Alarm. At least with a prostitute you would be getting something for your money. We are not condoning prostitution just making a point. Do not ever purchase Virus Alarm under any circumstances.
Aliases: Virus Alarm, VirusAlarm.
