verycleanpc.com
I've been hearing this one advertised on the radio...
It has a mirror site:
mycleanpc.com

They both offer CyberDefender - [url=http://www.virustotal.com/analisis/687ea3ce0cbc5c41a519950a291ee3a41b824511c7b12a86d1f2a11d2bdc4933-1246336255 t=_self]virusTotal scan[/url]
hpHosts did an [url=http://mysteryfcm.co.uk/?mode=Articles&date=17-04-2007 t=_self]evaluation back in 2007[/url] (where's part 2?)

So...
Anyone know of any genuine malware / scareware / rogue complaint/associations for Cyberdefender? If so, we should rate these two sit4es red as well, maybe check into them a little more for other mirrors, subdomains, MX (spam check), etc.

/me tired - time for bed :-)

"hpHosts did an evaluation back in 2007 (where's part 2?)"

They disabled the keys they'd given me after I published part 1, so I was never able to do any follow ups :o(

Clean PC?

Post by Jazspeak » Thu Mar 04, 2010 4:44 pm

Why does anybody ever bother with sites that claim to clean your PC? There is enough legitimate software to clean your PC without having anything to do with any site that offers to clean your PC, especially those offering to clean or speed up your PC online.

My advice to all WOT users (and other computer users) is to completely ignore all offers to clean or speed up your computer. If there are no takers for such offers then the crims will probably get bored and give up.

Agree, but . . .

Yes, these types of sites generally are rogues or actually host malware. And your argument that there is "legitimate software" to do this (like CCleaner and Auslogics) is valid.

However, to be "fair and unbiased" in ratings, WOT members must take a look at these sites and evaluate them. After all, would we want WOT to just flat out rate any site that is not mainstream and claims to "clean" or "speed up" your PC without even looking at the site? I can see that slam headline on WOT: "WOT users rate all sites that claim they "clean" a PC as bad just because they claim so, and WOT users don't even look at these sites". That may make some sense to do so, as you've argued, but I don't think we want WOT to be so charged.

So, while your argument that sites that claim to clean your PC are valid, I think we still need to take a look at them.

As far as using that crap (showing my bias already), I think Google is largely to blame. These sites generally are listed as "Sponsored Sites" and are always highlighted at the top or prominently displayed in a sidebar, and when a noob sees that stuff they click on it.

(I don't think very many WOT users, if any, use that crap).

I agree 100% that users should decline these "free scan" offers, but unfortunately this is not reality. On troubleshooting boards that I visit, I see a surprising number of users that are indeed duped by this nonsense.

Quite true and to further add to why they get duped, look at the spam issue. How many years has this been a problem where spam has become a household name yet we still hear of people opening the mail and many even responding to, or buying stuff from it.

There is always two mugs ready to replace someone who has finally seen the light. Human nature, you tell them not to do it and they do it with more vigour.

Thanks for info :D Rated and commented.

I just noticed that. It is not hard for malware sites to get back a green rep symbol by spamming good comments. IOBit did the same to stay out of the red.
