MyCleanPC and FinallyFast virus warning!
« on: April 14, 2012, 05:16:26 PM »
MyCleanPC and FinallyFast are SCAMS for money. Don't listen to these guys, no matter how convincing they can be, even if there's any "happy costumers", they're just paid actors!!

Use reliable software like CCleaner, avast!, MalwareBytes, Ad-Aware, etc.

P.S It's funny how software can make your internet speed 375x faster (FinallyFast claims that).

Hi GuitarLord

Have a look at the following websites  ;)

You have not installed there CRAP on your computer?

The only thing that will slow your computer is viruses, spyware etc and also limited system resources i.e. hardware

I know a guy who got roped by them for around six months....computer kept getting worse and worse....he was an internet newbie,  with slightly paranoid tendencies, and got convinced the "govt. was hacking his computer".   A misconception the good folks from cyberdefender were more than happy to perpetuate.

I didn't pay much attention at first when he said he was on the phone all the time with some PC techs he had hired, till we were watching TV and an advert for finalyfast came on, and he said that was his "experts"....I straightened him out (although he is still convinced the govt. is after him).
Signature?  But I gots no pen....

I've heard from a few people that those "trials" that those give are fake, and also implement they're own viruses until you buy the software.

They're WORSE than viruses when you buy them. They actually use your credit card! Then you'd slowly be losing money until you buy a new one.
And the FF commercial is funny cuz it's stupid. I mean, Mac doesn't have any native support for Windows XP. And guess what's lagging for the kid? HIS 2D FLASH GAME!!!
