AWM Antivirus

AWM Antivirus gives new meaning to the phrase “dynamite comes in small packages”. A blatant rogue antispyware, AWM Antivirus has only intensified its malicious activity in its revolutionized form. Like most rogues, it enters the system secretly and undetected through Trojans. Once rooted in the system, it will start spreading across the system like wildfire, causing never ending hassles for the pitiable user.

A major problem with AWM Antivirus is that it will fool the user’s genuine security software into thinking it is legitimate software by disabling any security applications on the system. If you find it hard to believe that users can fall for this type of blatant scare tactics, consider the dire and dismal bogus security warnings circulated by AWM Antivirus:

“System warning!
Intercepting programs that may compromise your privacy and harm your system have been detected on your PC. It's highly recommended you scan your PC right now.”

“Your computer is infected! Windows detected spyware infection!
It is recommended to use special antispyware tools to prevent dataloss.
Windows will now download and install the most up-to-date antispyware for you.”

It is pretty hard not to become panic stricken when such a message pops up, bad grammar and spelling mistakes aside. The fact of the matter is, not all users are computer whizzes with an inherent foolishness meter. And that is exactly what creators of rogue antispyware like AWM Antivirus rely on. Their market isn’t computer savvy users who can spot rogue antispyware a mile away. Their target market is the trusting and nervously unsuspecting user who cannot remove AWM Antivirus manually. The user knows enough about computer threats to want to protect his PC at any cost, and AWM Antivirus plays on this fact.

The problem with trying to eliminate AWM Antivirus is that it was designed to be undetectable. It does not want to be found on your system, and it definitely does not want to be removed.

Removing AWM Antivirus might seem like a mystery to most users, and it is. The only way to completely delete AWM Antivirus from any system is through the use of trusted and reputable antispyware software.
