San Diego, CA (PRWEB) December 29, 2005 -- TrekEight, LLC announced SpywareNuker XT, its fourth-generation anti-spyware software, now featuring Active Protection. Previously available only in TrekEight’s professional-level INAC line, the latest iteration of the SpywareNuker series brings this critical protection to the home desktop user.

"SpywareNuker XT is, in many ways, the most significant release ever in the SpywareNuker line,” commented Chief Technical Officer Bojan Gajic. “With the addition of Active Protection to SpywareNuker, it becomes one of only a very few solutions to offer this essential protection. Spyware and adware have become more sophisticated both in activity and installation methodology, and SpywareNuker XT is keeping up!”

Unlike most anti-spyware programs that only clean an infection after it has infiltrated the user’s PC, SpywareNuker XT offers “always-on” protection at the kernel level. This means that it works to prevent the infection from ever occurring in the first place. Of course, previous infections can still be easily detected, cleaned and repaired by SpywareNuker XT.

About spyware and adware: Though usually used for marketing purposes, (such as tracking the websites you visit and the items that you buy online and then directing advertisements to you), spyware can have the capability to record your credit card number, personal identification numbers, and all of your passwords. Recent studies have claimed that as many as 9 out of every 10 PC's contains installed adware or spyware of some kind.

SpywareNuker allows users who think they might be infected with spyware or adware to check their computer free of charge by visiting http://www.nuker.com. Questionable programs and applications are listed with a brief description of functionality, and users are given the option of utilizing the SpywareNuker XT program to assist in removing the program(s) if the users are not comfortable doing so themselves. Additionally, for a limited time, purchasers of SpywareNuker XT will be given a free copy of INAC Identity Defender, our leading anti-phishing software designed to keep users safe from the “phishing”schemes that are becoming increasingly prevalent.

Chief Technical Officer Bojan Gajic concluded, "SpywareNuker XT is still designed above all for ease of use and to offer maximum protection to the user who doesn't have time to master the intricate process of working with the PC's registry. SpywareNuker XT is a simple, comprehensive and effective solution for anyone, from the beginner to the advanced user, looking to increase their defenses against unwanted adware or tracking programs."
