ThinkPoint Virus

The list of rogue applications to remain wary of seems only to be growing longer. The ThinkPoint Virus has been making waves across the globe as a surge of infections have ravaged PCs everywhere. Despite the huge commotion surrounding the ThinkPoint Virus, users will find that its modus operandi is not that dissimilar to most rogue applications. Its goal is exactly the same – extort money out of PC owners by scaring them into buying their useless software.

Promoted via sneaky Trojans, ThinkPoint Virus will enter the system without being detected. This poses a problem as users will not know of its presence until it is too late. Once installed on the PC, ThinkPoint Virus will modify sensitive registry edits enabling it to start up when Windows boots. It will proceed to start a security scan of all the files on the system, and report back on fake threats which do not exist. This is all in an effort to confuse and panic the user into believing ThinkPoint Virus is legitimate.

Users will be bombarded with fake alerts by way of popup messages and system stray notifications, and ThinkPoint Virus will take up valuable process resources which will cripple the PC. ThinkPoint Virus has in the past also been known to try and disable the inherent security applications installed on the PC.

The only way to effectively be able to remove ThinkPoint Virus is by making use of powerful and genuine antispyware and antivirus software. Do not be fooled by its seemingly legitimate looking user interfaces, this rogue is dangerous and users should eradicate ThinkPoint Virus from their system without delay.
