Question

Virus-Eraser - is it real?

My parents recently paid for a subscription to Virus-Eraser. Is this company legit? Is it really an anti-virus software? I can't seem to find any reviews about it online that seem real.

Looks like a new one to me.

So I reserve commenting either way. The one thing that sets off alarm bells are their claims.

There has never been a "best" antivirus. If they claim such, it's a lie. Just for that alone I don't like them.

Not the best discovery at the link below, if that's the Virus Eraser you're referring to. Obviously, the website at the link below is a "come on" for SpyHunter which is also not the greatest product, but it's worth reading the info at the link. As the others mentioned, it's not a program I've ever used or heard of. Were your parents "forced" to buy it?

There are lots of good, free antivirus programs available. Why not use those?

Avira, Avast, AVG?

Hope this helps.

I deleted spyhunter spam yesterday. Their WOT rating was horrendous.

It takes time to find out who this is.

I wish they had not chosen that name for their company or product as it is turning up as an infection and not an antivirus.
