Enigmasoftware.com has released a comprehensive removal report for computer users seeking to rid their system of the fake security application 'CleanThis'.

The newly updated CleanThis Removal Report provided by EnigmaSoftware.com gives computer users plagued with the rogueware CleanThis an outlet to remove CleanThis. Because CleanThis is known to load into memory upon booting of Windows, it may be difficult to manually remove. CleanThis is also a clone of ThinkPoint, a nasty rogue anti-spyware program.

Once CleanThis has infected a PC, it uses a devious Trojan to lock computer users out of their machine. Computer users who wish to gain access to their Desktop will need to follow certain steps to disable CleanThis.

CleanThis is known to be a program created by crooked hackers who have the intention of swindling computer users out of their money. This meticulous process is usually carried out through the use of deceiving pop-up alerts and system scan results. Usually the scan results from CleanThis are populated with various fictitious malware threats that intend on making the computer user believe that they must purchase CleanThis to delete the threats. Upon purchasing CleanThis, computer users will later discover that the purchased version of CleanThis is not able to fulfill its promise of removing the so-called 'detected threats'.

As outlined in the updated EnigmaSoftware.com CleanThis Removal Report, CleanThis attempts to perpetrate as a trusted application similar to HijackThis. CleanThis even utilizes the logo from the legitimate security program 'HijackThis' to mislead computer users.
