If you take a personal interest in the safety, health and privacy of your PC you are likely to be conversant about most of the threats to these aspects of your system. The vitriol behind the highly disliked and infamous Think Point rogue’s attack should never be underestimated. Following suit with most typical rogue applications, Think Point’s main aim is to scam consumers out of their hard earned money. Where Think Point differs from other rogues is in the intensity of its attack. It’s fair to say this Think Point takes no prisoners while perusing its goal.
Think Point will want its victims to believe in its genuineness as a security tool capable of identifying, quarantining and removing threats and unwanted rogueware from their PCs. This is not the case as Think Point is actually a worthless, yet highly sophisticated scam. It is distributed through various means including coming bundled with other rogueware such as the fake Microsoft Security Essentials Alert and illicit websites. Once the infection infiltrates the marked PC it will start reporting on various fake threats. This is all done in an effort to scare and panic the consumer, and to convince the PC owner of Think Point’s legitimacy.
As a further attack, Think Point will inform the user the only way of getting rid of these purported infections is by purchasing “missing modules” not included in the Think Point Trial Version. Once Think Point makes a successful sale, the consumer is left with nothing but an empty shell of an application, devoid of any healing or diagnostic powers or capabilities. Of course the PC owner won’t know this, and will falsely believe his PC to be protected.
There is no middle ground here. If you value the health of your PC, you need to take action and permanently eradicate Think Point from your system. Follow these 8 easy steps to completely get rid of Think Point.
