Released in December 2004

SpyZooka emerged as a groundbreaking solution, the first to guarantee 100% spyware removal in less than 24 hours.

Over time, it has evolved to encompass PC optimization tools that enhance speed and performance. Designed to harmonize seamlessly with any antivirus software, SpyZooka distinguishes itself by addressing what traditional antivirus programs overlook.

Our Goal is to End Malware

Back in 2004, one of our co-founders, Carl Haugen, encountered the frustrations of a relentless spyware infection that defied all removal attempts. Determined to tackle this growing menace, he joined forces with Bogdan Necula to conceive a solution that would put an end to the malware dilemma. Thus, the journey of SpyZooka began. In 2005, we proudly pioneered the concept of a 100% spyware removal guarantee. The innovative approach was simple yet effective: users submitted spyware reports via SpyZooka, and within a mere 24 hours, we updated our database to eradicate the threat. This commitment remains steadfast in the present day.

Over the years, malware has evolved into a more intricate adversary. However, the evolution of counter technologies has been equally remarkable. At SpyZooka, we’re embracing cutting edge AI powered tools for the identification and elimination of all forms of malware. The true power lies in numbers: as more individuals integrate SpyZooka into their systems, our collective efforts will expedite the realization of our malware free vision.
