What is MaxMySpeed.com?

Technically speaking, MaxMySpeed PC is not necessarily malware but a scareware that scares unsuspecting computer users by displaying fake computer issues and infections so as to get the computer user to purchase their software for $ 39.99 a year. Moreover, MaxMySpeed collects privacy information as well, simply by visiting their website. In view that MaxMySpeed allows third party links and does not claim responsibility for any issues provided through third party links.., it is considered adware and spyware.
