Trust Cleaner - a new generation of rogue anti-spyware software

At first glance Trust Cleaner looks just like other unethical anti-spyware tools such as SpywareQuake or Spysheriff. Just like other rogue spyware scanners, Trust Cleaner attacks in two parts: with a loader that installs itself secretly on your PC, and then by trying to scare you into buying Trust Cleaner to ‘fix' your computer. 

Trust Cleaner, however, is in truth much more dangerous than the aforementioned programs. In addition to tricking users into buying the fake anti-spyware program, it is known to have several additional dangerous capabilities such as:

1. presenting "contextual" ads while browsing,

2. hijacking your browser,

3. preventing you from entering Google.com or any Microsoft-related website,

4. tricking you into using a bogus Google page stored on your PC altering your search result and displaying its own ads instead of Google's,

5. blocking the computer's ability to restart.

In short, Trust Cleaner is a member of a new category of malware. This rogue anti-spyware software has been enhanced by adding the browser hijacking capabilities, thus making Trust Cleaner a serious threat to your PC.

How to remove Trust Cleaner

The safest and surest way of removing Trust Cleaner is by using one of the available automated anti-spyware tools - ParetoLogic Anti-Spyware or Ad-Aware. However, in case you can't do it with the automated removers, it is possible to remove Trust Cleaner manually, and unlike most other cases, it is possible to do that WITHOUT editing the registry.

Disclaimer: the manual removal instructions below are based on the assumption that you are an experienced user with enough technical expertise to follow them. Follow the instructions at your own risk. To be absolutely safe it is recommended to use automated anti-spyware software such as Enigma's SpyHunter and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (Malwarebytes has free malware removal)  instead of the manual removal method. Any mistake you make during the manual Trust Cleaner removal may cause your system to malfunction or even cease to respond, so be careful!

1. Write down or print these instructions - you will need them also when every window will have to be closed.

2. Download and install FixTC.reg and ATF-Cleaner on your desktop,

3. Remove the following programs using Add or Remove Program option from the control panel:

Trust Cleaner,
TrustIn Bar,
TrustIn Contextual Ads,
Trustin Popups,
TrustIn Search Assistant,
Trust Cleaner Promo.

4. If any of the programs above remain on the list, remove them again.

5. Reboot your computer in Safe Mode (press F8 while the Windows starts).

6. Double-click of FixTC.reg. Click "Yes" and then "OK" when it asks if you would like to merge the information.

7. Delete the following files and directories (some of them may not exist in your case, don't worry about that):

C:Program FilesTrustIn Popups,
C:Program FilesTrustIn Bar,
C:Program FilesTrustIn Contextual,
C:Program FilesTrustIn Popups,
C:Program FilesTrustIn Search,

As well as the four Trust Cleaner icons from the desktop.

8. Reboot the computer (in normal mode this time).

9. Run ATF-Cleaner. Tick the Select All box and then click Empty Select. After it finishes, you can close the program and reboot again.

Important! Even if you have been able to remove Trust Clean manually, it is not likely that it has been the only infection. Security threats come in throngs, so the only real way to cure all spyware/adware infections is by using an automated spyware scanner (Spybot S&D, ParetoLogic Anti-Spyware etc).

Removing Trust Cleaner Automatically/Safely

For free automatic removal we recommend using Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. This program is widely recommended by reputable third-party sites, so you can be reasonably confident of its ability to safely get rid of Trust Cleaner and any hidden Trojans. As a precaution we recommend double checking your system with SpyHunter. This program requires paid registration to enable deletions, however it has a money back guaranteed and is the top of the line in malware removal. It should catch malware that evades Malwarebytes and block anything that tries to reinstal itself.
