ComClean is a new threat being a part of Korean rogue program which is widely spread nowadays. ComClean is distributed on several deceptive websites, however, it generally spreads via trojans. Claiming to be a powerful anti-spyware application and presenting itself as the effective protection tool, in fact it does not do any good to users’ PC. ComClean is nothing but a fake anti-virus program that tries to hide the fact that it has no any capability to protect the PC against viruses and other forms of real computer threats.
Just like lots of others malware applications, ComClean may suddenly appear on your PC out of nowhere. In other words, it is often installed onto your PC withoug your permission.

The team of developers of Gridinsoft Trojan Killer urges all PC users who see these changes to their computer system to become concerned about their PC.
