Do you know what VirusFighter is?
VirusFighter or Virus Fighter, is an untrustworthy program designed to trick computer users into falling for a scam to purchase the full VirusFighter program. VirusFighter pretends to be able to detect and remove spyware or viruses from your computer. VirusFighter is nothing but a rogue anti-spyware program that does absolutely nothing for detection or removal of viruses, spyware, Trojans or any other kind of malware.
In non-techie terms:
VirusFighter, like other rogue anti-spyware programs, gives you a 30-day trial period to use the software at no cost. Virus Fighter will continue to popup messages even after you purchase the program which we do not recommend. It would not be wise to purchase VirusFighter for any reason unless you like giving money away.
Aliases: VirusFighter, Virus Fighter.
