AntiSpyware Win Virus
Quickly erase Antispyware Win Virus
Antispyware virus is fraudulent software disguised as a antispyware software. This software is created to trick the users in to purchasing the software. To purchase the software, the user will make payment in one of the websites designated as purchase. The information provided by the user, credit card details, to purchase the software may be used by the tricksters for fraudulent purposes.
The following sections describe how the antispyware virus infects the computer, its functions and possible remedies for its removal:
The common mode of infection is via a Trojan horse program which downloads/ installs the antispyware malware. The software can also be installed if the user visits one of the websites advertising this bogus software. The website may display a window offering to scan the computer for possible infections. If the user clicks on these windows, then the software will be installed on the users computer. Another culprit is the Peer to Peer download sites. If the user downloads files from these sites he may receive this program as one of the files. If he clicks on the program/ infected file then the software will be installed onto the users computer.
Once installed the software simulates a scan of the users computer, and displays a fake report screen of exaggerated virus infection reports. It asks the user to purchase the full/ commercial version of the software to remove all the infections. If the user falls for the trap and selects to purchase the software, he will be directed to one of the purchase sites. Once he purchases and installs the software, the antispyware software may delete all the existing antivirus software and install Trojans/ viruses on the computer. It may also steal the personal information of the user and transmit it to third parties.There is also a high risk of divulging his credit card information in a bogus site. There are high chances of his credit card to be misused by the fraudsters. One of the common symptoms of infection by this software is a slow running computer (including slow startup) and a slow internet connection. If your computer is becoming unusually slow, and you are experiencing a slow internet connection and are annoyed by constant virus warnings or virus scans, then you may be sure of getting infected by this virus.
There are number of options to remove this malware from your computer. You can use the free antimalware software provided by Microsoft to detect and delete this software. You can also manually remove this infection by manually deleting the software program files and the registry keys. You should also check the startup and other configuration files for references to this software. It is advisable to install a genuine antispyware program (in addition to antivirus program) in to your computer and update the definitions regularly to stay clear of infections.
