ThinkPoint Removal Guide
ThinkPoint is a fake antivirus program that cannot detect and remove any malware. However, once ThinkPoint is installed in the computer, it WILL SURELY state that the computer has been infected by malwares and ask the user to purchase the full version of ThinkPoint. ThinkPoint is part of Microsoft Security Essential infection. Do not ever purchase ThinkPoint as it cannot detect and remove any malware. ThinkPoint will start automatically when Windows boot. Then ThinkPoint will states that it is a World's leading security solution. Actually, ThinkPoint cannot protect any computer from malwares.

ThinkPoint provide fake features such as Quick Scan, Full Scan and Firewall. It scares the user that the %ProgramFiles%\Messenger\msmsgs.exe is infected with Trojan.Horse.Win32.PAV.64.a. Don't be cheated as the file is clean. It disable Windows Task Manager and stop other legitimate antivirus program from protecting the computer.

ThinkPoint should be removed immediately!
