What is ThinkPoint?
ThinkPoint is a malicious software program created by cyber criminals in order to lie to PC users and make them think that their computer has become infected with spyware or other viruses. In reality, ThinkPoint is not able to scan your PC and detect if you have any problems with your machine, because it is nothing more than a ?disguised? virus itself. ThinkPoint tries to exploit the security of your machine in order to gain access to your operating system files.
As soon as ThinkPoint infiltrates your PC, it will automatically pop up on your desktop, and begin interrupting the functionality of your computer through so-called ?Security Alerts? which will pop up in a new window with frustrating regularity. These alerts present the program as an authentic anti-virus that has scanned your computer and detected viruses on it, for instance an ?Unknown Win32/Trojan?. As well as this, ThinkPoint will claim that it is unable to remove some of these viruses because the heuristic module required is missing. ?Lucky? for you however, ThinkPoint is able to install these modules for a small fee of $90.
DO NOT TRUST THIS PROGRAM!
If this virus installs ielf onto your PC, not only will you waste money but you will leave your machine even more exposed. ThinkPoint could disconnect you from the internet, steal passwords or financial information, or even let more viruses get inside your system.
