1. What is MalwarePro?

This rogue program falls into fake anti-spyware software category. Particular experiments revealed that the program is unable to remove spyware infections, besides shows fictitious computer security alerts thus cheating on user by offering MalwarePro program as a tool to solve spyware problems.

Even if trial program version contains free PC scan option user will be asked to purchase commercial version in order to activate spyware removal function. As MalwarePro is only a scam, we do not recommend using it as a computer security application. If there has been noticed inappropriate computer behavior caused by MalwarePro, do not hesitate and remove MalwarePro immediately.

Note. We ran MalwarePro computer scan onto PC free from spyware and viruses. The program managed to find 68 spyware and 13 adware problems!
