(PRWEB) September 8, 2005 -- TrekEight, LLC announced today that over 8
million users have used the SpywareNuker line of PC protection software to check
their personal computers for spyware and adware.
Though usually used for marketing purposes, (such as tracking the websites you visit and the items that you buy online and then directing advertisements to you), spyware can have the capability to record your credit card number, personal identification numbers, and all of your passwords. Recent studies have claimed that as many as 9 out of every 10 PC's contains installed adware or spyware of some kind.
"Spyware and adware remain annoying, threatening, or even downright dangerous," said TrekEight President James Leasure. "Despite more public awareness, new spyware and adware infections pop up almost daily. TrekEight stays on the forefront of detection by maintaining our own in-house team of spyware and adware hunters to find, identify and isolate the latest infections."
"However, as spyware and adware reach a critical mass in terms of the publicís consciousness, itís just as important to be sure to minimize false identifications," continued Leasure. "We make every effort to not only protect the consumer, but also not to cause them undue panic or to damage the reputation of innocent software vendors."
SpywareNuker 2005 works by allowing users who think they might be infected with spyware or adware to check their computer free of charge by visiting http://www.nuker.com. Questionable programs and applications are listed with a brief description of functionality, and users are given the option of utilizing the SpywareNuker 2005 program to assist in removing the program(s) if the users are not comfortable doing so themselves.
Chief Technical Officer Bojan Gajic commented, "SpywareNuker 2005 is designed above all for ease of use and to offer maximum protection to the user who doesn't have time to master the intricate process of working with the PC's registry. SpywareNuker 2005 is a simple, comprehensive and effective solution for anyone, from the beginner to the advanced user, looking to increase their defenses against unwanted adware or tracking programs."
