SiteAdware (also known as Site Adware) is yet another rogue anti-spyware program, only out to extort money from unsuspecting users. SiteAdware is a replica of the infamous rogueware: Security Fighter, Save Armor, Save Defender, Trust Warrior, Soft Safeness, and tends to sneak into a computer system while users are unknowingly searching for codec updates and the likes of… this is only one of the ways in which SiteAdware infiltrates a system. Fake malware system scans and spam e-mails may also contribute to the probability of SiteAdware entering into a computer system.
SiteAdware enters into a computer covertly, without the knowledge or consent of the user, displaying numerous pop-up advertisements, stating that the computer system is severely infected. This is a mere scare tactic employed to trick the user into purchasing the “full” version of SiteAdware. SiteAdware poses a particular threat to any computer by lowering the performance of said computer system, leaving the system slow while the virus ensures the gradual failure of the computer system. It is highly recommended that SiteAdware be deleted from the infected computer system, ASAP!
