IP Clear is the latest rogue anti-spyware application, which was designed to attempt to dupe unsuspecting PC users into believing their dubious tactics to be true, and ultimately persuade them into purchasing the full version of this nefarious application.
IP Clear usually spreads by using browser hijackers to redirect the user to websites hosting fake online system scans and thus tricking him into downloading the program.
As is typical of rogue anti-spyware software like this, IP Clear doesn’t deviate much from the typical and most widely practiced tactics of PC parasite infiltration. IP Clear tends to also make use of affiliated backdoor Trojan infections, usually Trojan Vundo or Zlob, in order to ensure hidden penetration into the targeted machine is successful.
IP Clear’s malicious trialware usually runs each time you log onto Windows and will display its fake system scanner that claims to find a variety of corrupted dangerous files.
As a well-practiced tactic, IP Clear will have you believe that in order to protect your Operating System against these “detections”, you will be prompted to install IP Clear’s full commercial version which demands payment.
IP Clear has the following properties:
- Changes browser settings
If you do install IP Clear licensed software, you will soon realize that it’s not only worthless in terms of malware removal, but it compromises any computer systems’ performance and will eventually slow down the computer considerably.
One should remove the IP Clear rogue anti-spyware application as soon as it has been detected.
A system that has been infected with IP Clear may tend to display the following basic symptoms, which a computer user should look out for:
• Slow computer performance:
• New desktop shortcuts or switched homepage:
• Annoying pop-up messages:
All in all though, I would recommend employing the services of a reliable and legitimate, fully functional, up-to-date anti-spyware application, to remove IP Clear and all its components from the infected computer system.
