1. What is MalwareCrush?

It is rogue security program having a feature of intense advertising. The program is spread by a Trojan that causes periodic spyware alerts appearing in the taskbar area. In order to clean computer from spyware user is suggested to download MalwareCrush as malware removal utility. After free PC scan, the victim is prompted to purchase licensed program version in order to remove found threats. As certain experiments showed, MalwareCrush is unable to clean computer from spyware properly and we do not recommend using it as spyware removal and protection tool.

Malware Crush is a scam, trying to cheat user and persuade him to buy full software version. Add/Remove Programs utility will not remove Malware Crush completely, because of a trojan which remains on the computer and keeps displaying fake security alerts.

It is recommended to remove rogue PC security software as soon as it has been noticed or detected. For Malware Crush removal help please see our "How to remove" section.
