SpySoldier - Find a Better Combatant to Protect You

 

Lots of popups on your computer in recent days may mean that SpySolider has been installed on your machine. As a result, getting rid of this warrior before it causes any serious problems is a pretty good idea.

What is SpySoldier?

SpySoldier is an adware program that tries to get you to purchase its full version by scaring you into thinking that you have a serious adware or virus problem on your computer. Created by the same company who made SpywareKnight, SpySoldier is there to scare you out of your money.

What Will I Notice With SpySoldier?

If you do have SpySoldier on  your computer, you are likely to notice a number of odd things. One of the first things you will see is slower computer performance. SpySoldier has lots of files associated with it, and as a result, it takes up more of your computer's virtual memory. Moreover, because part of its programming says it must run as soon as your computer turns on, it will incessantly be in the background, eating up your memory. Whether you want to play the hottest new computer game, or you just want to download photos of the kids, SpySoldier will be running and eating up your resources. This means that everything you do will seem to take forever.

Another thing you might notice if SpySoldier is on your computer is three different kinds of popup advertisements.

  • The first kind of SpySoldier popup ad will look like a traditional internet advertisement. It will simply tell you that SpySoldier will protect your computer from threats, and no matter where on the internet that you choose to navigate, you might end up with a SpySoldier ad in your taskbar.
  • The second kind of SpySoldier ad is a little scarier. It can occur while you're online, but it can also occur while your browser isn't even running. This SpySoldier ad will pretend to scan your computer for security threats. Its results will return thousands of threats, and according to the ad, the only way to remove those threats is to buy the full version of the program. The most common threat it returns is Win32.Trojan.Dropper.
  • The final type of SpySoldier ad is even more frightening. This kind of ad appears at any point in time, and it looks like the traditional Windows notification balloon. It will tell you that a security risk has been found on your computer, and in order to fix the problem, the full version of SpySoldier must be downloaded and installed. You must click on the ad to fix the problem. Clicking on the ad, though, is one of the last things you should do, as it will only take you to the SpySoldier home page, and that might be dangerous.

Popup ads can be scary, but the overall changes to the feel of your computer can be just as scary. For example, you might begin to suddenly notice new icons appearing for SpySoldier or one of its affiliate programs. You might also notice that your computer's desktop background has changed to a warning label suggesting that without SpySoldier, your computer is at risk. Finally, you might notice that your internet bookmarks now include SpySoldier and its affiliate programs, your internet home page may be for SpySoldier, and your internet browser's redirect page may also now be an advertisement for SpySoldier. SpySoldier is employing hijacking tactics to try to get you to buy their program with these kinds of changes.

How Did I Get SpySoldier?

It's hard to say exactly how you got SpySoldier, but the most common way to get the program is when it comes bundled with other software that you have recently downloaded. In most cases, the offending download would have been a freeware or shareware product. Many of these bundle with SpySoldier and other similar programs to help pay the bills, and sometimes they bother to tell you about SpySoldier, and sometimes they don't. Either way, SpySoldier removal is imperative.

 

Is SpySoldier Dangerous?

SpySoldier can be dangerous, though there have been no reports of identity theft linked to the product. The simple truth is that SpySoldier can do two things. First, it can let other adware programs take root on your machine. It opens a tiny security hole when it installs, and lots of other programs can slip through that hole, causing you more problems. Second, it does have the ability to record and upload your information to a third party. While it doesn't typically do this, the fact that it can is scary enough for most users.

How do I Remove SpySoldier?

There are three possible ways to remove SpySoldier from your computer. First, try working through your add/remove programs panel. You can access this by accessing your system's control panel. There are, though, two problems with this idea. First, SpySoldier may not actually appear on your add/remove programs panel. Second, if it does appear, it may not be set up to actually remove all of the associated files. If it doesn't get all of the SpySoldier files, it will reinstall itself the next time you turn your computer on.

The second option to remove SpySoldier is to work through your system registry to delete all of the files installed on your computer. This, though, also has its drawbacks. First, if you're not a professional, this isn't a recommended method. Editing your registry is dangerous, and one wrong keystroke could cause serious problems. Second, if you miss a file, you're back at square one.

The final option for removing SpySoldier is to download and install a trusted antivirus product like Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (Malwarebytes has free malware removal) . There are lots of these programs on the market today, but watch out. You want a reputable one, not a rogue like SpySoldier. Keep it updated, and it will not only remove programs like SpySoldier, it will also protect you from the threats you don' know about yet.

SpySoldier is a hassle, but removing the program should be a fairly easy task.
