Nasty Spyware ThinkPoint is a malicious rogue anti-spyware program that comes bundled with the fake Microsoft Security Essentials Alert.

This is what 2spyware.com has to say about it

It is promoted through the use of fake online anti-malware scanners, misleading websites and other malicious software. Once installed, the rogue program will prompt you to restart your computer because of the supposedly found malware on your computer. After a restart, ThinkPoint will scan your computer for malware without your permission. After the fake scan, it will claim that your computer is infected with all sort of viruses but in order to remove all the infections you need to buy certain modules that are not included in a trial version of Think Point. In reality, thought, this fake program only pretends to scan your computer and it won’t remove any infections from your computer simply because it reports non-existent infections. Please don’t purchase it.

I am sharing this with you because this spyware infected my cousins computer in Spain. I had to help them through msn messenger to combat this very tricky anti spyware program because this spyware blocked the web browser and they could not open the web browser. Thank God that my young second cousin has some experience with computers and he was able to follow my instruction very well.

Virus Removal Links I Recommend:

Always make sure that you sure about what you download and install in your computer or laptop. I will be updating this post from time to time. So keep coming back for the latest news.

If you have any questions please let me know.
