What is Spyware Striker?

By Ascentive

What is it?

Spyware Striker from Ascentive, the group that does the FinallyFastPC informercials, is an antivirus/antimalware program. Spyware Striker is not a recognized antimalware program by any independent certifying agency such as Virus Bulletin. Spyware Striker has also been included with bundled installations as well as bundles the Ascentive Performance Center product which is not uninstalled when Spyware Striker is uninstalled. StopBadware.org released a badware alert about Spyware Striker: We find that Spyware Striker Pro is badware because it does not disclose the fact that it installs additional "Performance Center" software which is registered to run automatically at startup, and fails to remove this software when Spyware Striker Pro is uninstalled.

Description from Ascentive
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. Ascentive’s spyware remover software is easy to download and install, and even easier to use. There are no complicated settings, no confusing manuals to read and no annoying 3rd party ad popups. With a simple one-click download and step-by-step Easy-Install, our spyware software is the perfect solution to get your PC up to speed. There are many dangerous Spyware, Malware, and Adware programs. These programs can also cause system slow-downs and instability by constantly running behind-the scenes. If your computer is very slow during start-up and new windows instantly pop-up each time you restart, you might be affected. By removing these annoying programs from your system you can improve PC performance, and even speed up your Internet browsing.
