Hi everyone. I found this site because I was surfing the internet to find out how to remove Spyfalcon from mhy home PC. The instructions provided by bleepingcomputer.com appear to be very detailed, and I will give it a try.

By the way, aside from whether it is legal or not for Spyfalcon to infect a computer with their product (which cannot be easily removed), and then entices the user to purchase it, isn't there someting ethically wrong with doing what they are doing? To my thinking, this is an intrusion, and should not be considered as "best business practices."

There is most certainly an ethical problem towards the makers of SpyFalcon. It is illegal where i live, but in the country where they are hosted i imagine it isn't illegal - therefore we cannot touch them.
However, we endevour to fight back - we won't let them take over. I wish you the best of luck with your fight with the Falcon and i welcome to BC.

If their software were any good, or they were ethical, they would not have to use such underhanded means to sell their product, now would they? Alas! the Internet is not always a happy neighborhood.
