Malware Catcher

Malware Catcher, a replica of Virus Melt, Virus Sweeper, is a rogue anti-spyware program. You may have downloaded Malware Catcher thinking it would solve your spyware issues, but in actual fact may have infected your computer with the help of Trojan Vundo usually found bundled with fake video codecs.
Once you're infected with Vundo, it will use aggressive advertising methods to push its rogue website and sell its product, claiming to be able to clean your computer from spyware. Malware Catcher deceptive methods include: fake warning alert pop-ups and system notification messages in the Taskbar. The links on the fake warning messages lead to a rogue website where you'll be convinced to download the trial version of Malware Catcher.

Malware Catcher is able to imitate a system scan and report a list of supposed infections to scare you and push you into buying the “full” Malware Catcher version. This approach is to lead you to believe that you're infected with a load of spyware, when, in reality, is Malware Catcher itself. Malware Catcher may launch on every Windows startup. Malware Catcher is to be deleted immediately from your computer system!
