Ad-Aware VX2 Cleaner Plug-In 2.0

Lavasoft's new plug-in VX2 Cleaner detects/clean the malware VX2
Ad-Aware VX2 Cleaner Plug-In provides users with an alternative to remove the VX2 malware that has caused a lot of problems to its victims and profit to its makers back in 2005. Although the VX2 is no more, the fact that it once produced harm to computer users can only serve as a lesson in both present and future.

The VX2 malware has originally distributed itself through the Internet at light speed. It has reached not only the PCs of less savvy users but the ones of advanced users as well. Everybody was a target and the distribution network was well-thought-of. VX2 also had multiple variants and was also kept updated on a regular basis, making it more fearsome and dangerous with its new iterations.

Generally, VX2 infested computers would present random ad-popups of so-called spyware removers and popup blockers alongside a slower overall OS experience, agonizing boot times as well as patched task managers unwilling to help you trace the source location of the running VX2 host process. Although the first variant of VX2 could be removed by Lavasoft’s Ad-Aware, the next versions were dodging detection.

This is why the Ad-Aware VX2 Cleaner Plug-In was released the same year the worldwide infestation has taken place. This particular tool was able to detect and remove the second and even the third variant of the VX2 malware and it was one of the only option back then. It has saved many operating systems from the plague, thus it served its purpose well.

One thing you really must consider is the installation instruction set of this wonderful tool. First, you have to make sure that both Ad-Aware and Ad-Watch are not running, then you have to restart them right after installing Ad-Aware VX2 Cleaner Plug-In. Accessing the Plug-ins section of the Lavasoft program reveals the newly deployed tool and the option to run it.

Ad-Aware VX2 Cleaner Plug-In acted as a lifeguard back in 2005 and that makes it one great application. VX2 was only a step forward for the malware creators and since then, other less or more threatening programs have been developed to bring profit to their architects and havoc to the community.
