The internet is a dangerous place. There is no denying it. However, at the same time, it is a wonderful source of information. In order to stay safe on the internet, it is important to not click, or install, any software that can compromise your computer.

While researching for this post, I found a video on YouTube from Jim Browning. In this short film, he explains how a particular piece of software, known as ‘System Diagnostic Tool’ defrauds it’s customers. The ‘program’ in question, reports to remove, or clean, your PC of infections and junk. In reality, it does nothing. The video is well worth a watch.

System Diagnostic Tool is a product of Sparksgen Limited, retailing through http://www.safeapzz.com, who are both well known within the IT industry as fraudsters. Please do not install this, or any of their software mentioned in the video. Should you have already installed this, or any of their software, please remove it immediately and run an antivirus/anti-malware scan of your computer.
