Description of spywarestriker.exe from Ascentive LLC
When it comes to anti-spyware software you want the best protection available. There are just too many invasive and malicious programs lurking on the web to trust your privacy and your data to a marginal anti-virus product. At Ascentive we can say with confidence that our Spyware Striker Pro anti-spyware application is among the best in the industry. Sure, everybody knows what a computer virus is...but what is a virus or spyware definition? Just like the definition you might find in a dictionary for a word or phrase, a spyware definition is a description of a type of virus, spyware, or malware that your anti-spyware software uses to identify spyware on your computer. By running the various files on your computer through its spyware definitions database your anti-spyware software can identify and remove the spyware on your computer.
