Win 7 Antispyware
It would seem the developers behind rogue security tools never rest or tire! Criminals are behind Win 7 Antispyware, a rogue antispyware tool out to trick honest consumers. The problem with Win 7 Antispyware is that it seems quite legitimate, and capable of protecting PC owners’ systems from dangers found online. The truth is that Win 7 Antispyware is a big threat in itself, as it offers no diagnostic or removal power and poses no benefit to any infected PC.
It’s worth mentioning that Win 7 Antispyware is actually a copy, a blatant clone of numerous other rogue security tools. This is evident by its main executable, called pw.exe, the same executable many other rogues have in common. As a first point of attack on the PC, Win 7 Antispyware will bombard the user with incessant popup messages shortly after infiltrating the PC. It will inform the user that his PC is under attack, and that Win 7 Antispyware is the only application capable of removing these threats and protecting the system.
This cannot be farther from the truth as Win 7 Antispyware is actually the harmful infection. It will be behind the very symptoms it warns about. These symptoms include the generating of random Desktop files and items in an effort to confuse legitimate security tools, blocked Internet connections and the consumption of large volumes of system resources, which will in effect make the system unusable.
The only way to limit the damage posed by this rogue will be to exterminate Win 7 Antispyware without delay. This might seem dramatic but there truly is no middle ground. Win 7 Antispyware does not have your best interests at heart, and poses a significant security and privacy risk for any infected PC. The only alternative left for PC owners who want to get control back of their systems will be to kill pw.exe and clean Win 7 Antispyware off the system.
