SpySheriff is malware that disguises itself as anti-virus software and targets Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows 2000, Windows ME, Windows NT and Windows XP. It bombards an infected computer with false warnings and urges the victim to buy now. It locks Internet Explorer to prevent so called "severe malware" from infecting the computer and also locks System Restore to prevent the compromised computer from using normal procedures to protect itself. It is also considered to be extemely difficult to remove because it will reinstall itself. Adware Sheriff, Pest Trap, SpywareNo, Spylocked, SpywareQuake, SpyTrooper, Spydawn, AntiVirGear, Brave Sentry, System Security, SpywareStrike, SpyShredder, Alpha Cleaner, SpyBot SpyMarshal, and SpyAxe are clones of SpySheriff. No matter what it may do to your PC DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, GIVE ANY INFORMATION TO THESE FUCKING SCAMMERS!!!!!!!!! It infects a computer by going on websites such as spysheriff.com and goggle.com; as of 2009, both of these websites were said to be defunct (This is not the case). Goggle.com (a typo of google.com) and spysheriff2009.webs.com are running. WARNING: DO NOT GO TO THESE WEBSITES UNLESS YOU WANT TO DESTROY YOUR COMPUTER AND GET SCAMMED!!! BROWSE AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!
