    "TERRIBLE!!! Virus, Malware, Rogue, whatever!"

    May 6, 2013  |   By qualitycontrol99

    Pros

    Easy to uninstall unlike most virus/rogue/malware.

    Cons

    Why is this app even on a legit site like Cnet? It's a virus program!!!

    Summary

    I accidentally installed this program a couple of days ago from SOPCAST. I went there to download sopcast, and clicked the wrong link for a download link called "Video Player". Installed it like a fool and it was PC Fix Speed. It also installed wajam and some other crap. It also set my home pages to "isearchfantasticgames.net" or something.
    Fortunately it was easy to uninstall by just using add/remove or ccleaner. Before uninstalling, I ran avira full scan, and it found nothing. Malwarebytes found nothing as well. Only Spybot search & destroy found 2 infected items.
    Thankfully this program didn't disable any functions. I was able to access taskbar, and all the virus protection programs and easily uninstall it like a normal program. For the homepage search engine, I just rewrote the preferred home page and removed the toolbar in firefox.
    My question is, why didn't Avira and Malwarebytes detect this as a virus!!!?
