VirusBlast - Scaring You Into A Purchase

If you're worried that you have a spyware infection on your machine because something that looked suspiciously like a Windows balloon in your system tray told you you were infected, you can relax. You do have problems, but they're not quite as serious as you think. In all likelihood, you have an adware program called VirusBlast installed on your  machine, and part of VirusBlast's mission is to convince you to buy their antispyware product by frightening you into making the purchase. Rather unfriendly of them, don't you think?

Why Should I Remove VirusBlast?

There are many reasons you should consider removing VirusBlast from your machine. First, VirusBlast is an adware product. This means that the only goal here is to sell you a product that you simply don't need. Moreover, once you have one adware product on your  machine, you open yourself to literally hundreds of other adware products, and this can cause some pretty serious problems. All in all, you're probably facing a fairly serious slowdown of your normal computing processes. The reason this happens is a fairly simple one. When a program like VirusBlast moves in and makes itself at home, it enters a registry key in your system that tells it to being every time you turn your machine on. That means that while you may think you are only running one small application, your computer is actually fighting to keep up. It's virtual memory is taken over by lots of small programs, making it difficult to run all of them. You may never see those programs because they hide in the background, but you are certain to feel the slowdown of your machine.

Second, VirusBlast has the ability to hijack your internet settings. While your home page may have been your favorite useful search engine, your new home page after VirusBlast is probably - yes, you guessed it - the site to sell you VirusBlast. Moreover, should you encounter any page errors during your daily internet surfing session, you will be redirected not to your default redirect page but back to the VirusBlast page or one by a similar, and affiliated, product. VirusBlast can hijack your browser in other ways. You might notice lots of new little icons on your desktop. Don't click them, though, as they will install other spyware products on your computer. You may even notice new bookmarks in your favorites file, as VirusBlast seems to think there are a few other sites that you've missed. All of them are adware or spyware products as well, so stay away from the sites themselves.

Finally, VirusBlast can run some fairly frightening stuff at will. One day as you're working, it can pop up with a fake scan suggesting it has found spyware on your computer. The chances are pretty good that it hasn't found spyware, but that can be a scary message just the same. It even has the ability to replace your normal desktop background with a message that your computer is infected. The messages all suggest that the only way to get rid of your spyware problem is to pay for the full version of VirusBlast. Unfortunately, this is the last thing you want to do. Not only will it lighten your pocketbook, it won't do anything to actually remove problem files from your machine.

VirusBlast Removal

There are several things you can do to remove VirusBlast from your machine. First, you can edit your computer's registry and listing of program files to remove all traces of VirusBlast from your machine. This is a good way to accomplish VirusBlast removal, but it's also a good way to crash your system. Any time you delete program files or work within your registry, your system is at risk. Make a mistake of a single keystroke in your registry, and you may be in for serious problems - problems far more serious than you had just dealing with VirusBlast. As a result, if you choose this option, be sure to have a professional at your side while you work. If you choose this option, a list of files and registry keys follows this article.

Your next option is to do a system restore. However, VirusBlast can become part of any Windows operating system, and that doesn't work for all Windows users. Moreover, that will only work right after you have encountered VirusBlast.

Your final option is your best one - use your current antispyware product to get rid of VirusBlast. If you don't have an antispyware product, you need to get one right away. One of the best programs out there is ParetoLogic. Unlike the adware programs that pretend to be antispyware solutions, ParetoLogic actually is. Just keep your definition files up to date and scan your machine once a week and programs like VirusBlast will be easily eliminated from your computer.

VirusBlast is annoying adware. Remove it today.
