Users are warned against the Trojan horse infection SpyAxe, which displays tow icons in the system tray. The icons displayed in the system tray actually warn the user about supposed malware and spyware infections being present on the compromised PC. It will then magnanimously advise the user to download and install an antispyware application. The antispyware application referred by SpyAxe is actually the infamous SpyAxe 3.0 rogue antispyware application.
When the user clicks on SpyAxe’s system tray notification, the Trojan will open SpyAxe 3.0’s official website, which also hosts a payment portal. Many users try and find information about this Trojan, and use various names to research it including spyax and spy ax. If you want to attempt to manually remove SpyAxe, you will need to kill spyaxe.exe, its main process.
All of these names are indications of a SpyAxe infection.

There is no middle ground here, if your PC is infected with SpyAxe, your system stability, security and privacy is compromised. In order to restore security to your system and to take back control of your PC you will need to permanently destroy SpyAxe. Do this by investing in a program which will remove SpyAxe for good.
