Win 7 Antivirus 2012
The depraved levels developers of rogue antispyware applications will sink to never cease to amaze. Win 7 Antivirus 2012 forms part of a sophisticated family of rogues with the ability to change its properties to suit its environment. This means that depending on the operating system used by the user, Win 7 Antivirus 2012 has the ability to change its name to either XP Antivirus 2012 or Vista Antivirus 2012. Although this may contribute to making it more difficult to detect and remove Win 7 Antivirus 2012, it is still the exact same rogue.
Win 7 Antivirus 2012 will make use of any devious tactic at its disposal to make its insidious infiltration of the system easier. This includes making use of bogus online malware scanners, seditious browser hijackers and infected online flash ads. Because of its stealth infiltration, the user will find it difficult to detect and remove Win 7 Antivirus 2012 from the system without some help.
In fact, the user will remain completely oblivious of Win 7 Antivirus 2012’s presence until the rogue starts its attack against the PC. This will happen by Win 7 Antivirus 2012 instigating a fake system scan each time the user logs on to Windows. It will then proceed to ‘scan’ the system and will produce fake results in an effort to scare the user into thinking his PC is under attack.
As a further attack on the system, Win 7 Antivirus 2012 will prevent the user from running any type of application on the infected system, and will deny him access to the Internet. This is done with the explicit intention of preventing the user from being able to download or run any type of application which may be able to identify and delete Win 7 Antivirus 2012 from the system.
The rogue will also cause the system severe erratic behavior, and consume valuable system resources which will result in extremely poor system performance. Fake security alerts in the form of pop up messages will also harass the user. Entering the following activation key will stop all of the rogue’s annoying symptoms, and will make it easier for the user to delete Win 7 Antivirus 2012 from the system for good:
When all is said and done you will only be able to regain control of your PC if you immediately erase Win 7 Antivirus 2012 from the system. Make sure you get rid of Win 7 Antivirus 2012 completely by investing in a powerful security tool, which will also adequately protect your system against similar future threats.
This rogue is particularly annoying because right after the installation it blocks every single exe file and you can no longer run your computer. Then there is nothing else left to but to restart your computer. When you do, while it boots press F8 and select to load the Safe Mode with Networking, so that you could download SpyHunter from our website. Then restart again, and load your computer in Normal mode to install SpyHunter. Another way to install the program is to download it on another computer, rename the installer file from installer.exe to installer.com and then transfer the file into a USB flash drive. Plug the drive into the infected computer and use it to install the program.
Once SpyHunter is installed, it will scan your computer and detect the rogue, and kill it.
NOTE: Just because you can no longer see the rogue it does not mean that it doesn’t exist. Perform a full system scan to locate and terminate all of its components, because any file associated with the rogue can leave your computer’s door open for other malware.
