    Are website tiriform.com and its programs malware?

    My sister connected to ".tiriform.com" instead of to ".piriform.com" and downloaded what purported to be a file cleaner program, much too similar in name to the legit CCleaner.

    WHOIS identifies ".tiriform." as registered in Shanghai, China. The site doesn't show in a google search; one needs to actually type in the URL to access it.

    Has anyone had any experience with downloading/installing/cleaning up after the "tiriform.com" program pcleaner?

    With thanks in advance,
    NLW

    Lightbulb "Tiriform/pCleaner"

    Hi : I have no personal experience with either tiriform.com or pCleaner, but since a Google "search" revealed there are Crack and/or Keygen Sites "offering" pCleaner, I would assume your sister has one of those "versions" and is most likely has some malware on her computer ( since there is a high probability that tiriform.com is one of those types of Sites) . I recommend your sister uninstall that "program", if possible, then run some excellent antimalware programs such as Malwarebytes Anti-Malware AND "SUPERAntiSpyware", both of which come in a FREE Version . This MAY be the beginning of a malware-removal process !?
