Lol, where'd Terminextor go?

I swear it used to be on download.com
Where's Terminextor?!
*holds up protest torch*
This is an outrage! They've destroyed a free antispyware! What's going on?
*falls off from all the yelling*

Rogue product he's asked about--

Perhaps you need to do more research before spending good money on bad software Soldier.

The web is full of rip-offs and you seem to be an easy target. Many "anti-spyware" products aren't, but are actually spyware themselves and ASK YOU TO PAY THEM to load it, then you cannot get rid of it.

Doing a bit of reserch before you download or purchase is easy to do. Since you seem to take all the "bad" stuff and pay for it, maybe you should get in the habit of using Google (or any other search engine) before purchasing anything off the "net".

May I also suggest you download Spoofstick or some other anti-phishing product to ensure you aren't giving money or information to unwanted parties? No offense but you seem like an easy target for these sorts of unsavory companies. You are not doing your own due dilligence. Criminals on the net rely on people doing exactly that-- no reasearch on what they are selling or who they are, in order for them to succeed.
