@nunayobiznus I actually do think that is a large portion of it.
First a friend of mine got hit, and then my mom just got hit….beware of WinFixer! It is a pain in the behind to get rid of! We ended up hiring a tech to come out to our office today, and $135 later, we are rid of WinFixer and another one that hit one of my employees called SpyAxe. A program I had not heard of called Spy Sweeper seems to have cleaned both out thankfully.
What sort of doofus comes up with these programs? What do they gain? Does anyone actually buy these “programs” they offer?
