Microsoft Security Antivirus
Users will be able to recognize the bogus Microsoft Security Antivirus by its legitimate looking user interfaces. In reality, this annoying malware tool uses the name of Microsoft Corporation to wheel unsuspecting and naive users into their illicit scam. Users are urged never to trust any software or applications distributed under the name of Microsoft Security Antivirus.
Microsoft Security Antivirus will spread its infections on unprotected or compromised systems mainly through file sharing sites. It can also be installed unwittingly by the user through merely visiting suspect and malicious websites. This is done through the use of harmful Trojan infections.
One of the main symptoms of a Microsoft Security Antivirus infection is the user’s inability to access his Desktop. The user will then be prompted to buy the full version of Microsoft Security Antivirus in order to receive an “unlock code”, which will then grant access to his own desktop again. This is a particularly nasty infection and can damage important and sensitive system files.
If you suspect your PC of being compromised by this rogue, run a reliable antispyware application and remove Microsoft Security Antivirus along with any other hidden infections as soon as possible.
