    Default Spybot ignores Crime Watch

    Crime Watch has been around long enough that I am amazed that Spybot does not detect it or remove it. Crime Watch is probably distributed by Enigma Software, since that company is the only one that offers a fix, called "Spy Hunter 4." There are numerous reports of malignant business practices by this company: automatic "renewals, refusal to accept cancellation of these "renewals, bogus charges on credit cards, etc. I am fairly sure I got this malware by attempting to stream TV shows online. It would please me greatly if Spybot would live up to its promises and detect and remove this evil malware.

    It appears to be flagged by some applications as Adware or a PUP, Potentially Unwanted Program.

    From which source?

    Often such software comes bundled with other programs that were downloaded.

    I will bring your request for detection to the attention of our detectives. Would you like to start a new topic in our malware removal forum, if so I will provide a link to the FAQ.

    Best regards.
