    Every time I was searching for something on google, Fastfind redirected me to some other pages and I received lots of pop ups. I had a good antivirus, but it wasn’t able to remove Fastfind. I tried with another one, the same problem… Finally, I tried SpyZooka, because I’ve remembered that a friend of mine told me once that is a good program. I see that by myself now. Thanks to you, my computer is clean, with no issue.

    I had a problem with trojans and spywares. The antivirus program would detect it and heal it yet with every reboot the infected files would come back. I discovered here a simple solution that works…SpyZooka is great and removed all spywares!
