I saw a new TV ad today for a website called maxmyspeed.com. This is yet another website giving away a “free” antivirus/antispyware scan sponsored by CyberDefender. Don’t fall for these scams! I absolutely hate these websites that try to trick unsuspecting customers into downloading their software and and then try to extort money from them to remove the imaginary viruses and malware.
If you are still unsure about CyberDefender, (the software that you have to download and install), then just Google “Cyberdefender scams” and see what happens. Seems like CyberDefenders’ new tactic is to go after anyone that writes a bad review.
Stay away from these guys at all costs. Make sure that your system is protected with valid antivirus/antispyware software. We highly recommend using Vipre, (see the banner ad below), a lean and mean AV solution for your PC.
