Remove Spyaxe from your pc

SpyAxe is a trojan, which displays one or two icons in the system tray.

These icons show a message saying that the compromised system is infected with spyware parasites and asking the user to download and install an anti-spyware program , which actually is the infamous SpyAxe, corrupt illegally distributed spyware remover.

Once the user clicks on such message, the trojan opens the anti-spyware’s official web site. It may also try to download the application automatically.

SpyAxe may also change the desktop background.
