SpyAxe Removal Instructions

SpyAxe (also known as "Spy Axe") is one of the latest in rogue anti Spyware applications that dupes unsuspecting users into paying a nominal fee to reverse the problems that it causes. The entire scheme is built off of a flaw in the MS Windows Operating System that allows the rogue software to install itself without any input from the user.

Once SpyAxe infects a system, it sends a notification via popup balloon similar (and almost identical to) Windows Update Notification balloons.

The good news is this defect has been resolved but only if you have the latest Windows updates that were released on December 13th. If you aren't sure if you have the latest updates, it is recommended that you visit the Windows Update web site immediately. Remove SpyAxe (Removal Instructions)
