FakeVimes

FakeVimes is a family of rogues that come claiming they can solve all your computer-related problems. They pretend to be antivirus programs and bombard you with fake security warnings, saying that you have been infected with various malicious programs and viruses. Needless to say, that it is a blatant lie and FakeVimes does not have an ability to remove malicious files.

If this is not the first time you have been infected by a rogue antispyware, then you probably know some of the rogues that belong to the FakeVimes family already. These rogues try to impersonate legitimate Microsoft products and that is why some users fall into the trap – the design of the rogues and the messages sent are very much like those issued by Microsoft. FakeVimes is known to impersonate Microsoft Security Essentials, Windows Defender, Microsoft Windows Malicious Software and Microsoft Safety Scanner products. Some of the known rogues from FakeVimes family include Ultra Antivir2009, Live PC Care, Security Antivirus, Extra Antivirus and the like.

There are many ways to get infected by FakeVimes. Usually, the users just get infected accidentally while landing on an infected website, or via a drive-by download. Once it is installed, however, apart from the fact that it performs a fake system scan and bombards you with useless messages, FakeVimes also can modify the Hosts file in order to redirect your search results to malware infected websites. Thus is means that with FakeVimes you are exposed to even further infections.

FakeVimes can also modify your registry entries in order to load automatically whenever you turn on your computer. It also kills processes that might be deemed unnecessary or dangerous for the rogue’s survival, and FakeVimes has also been observed to kill security applications. Thus it lowers the security of your system and your web browser, and the same time, trying to convince you that there is something terribly wrong with your computer and you must use your money to buy the full version of FakeVimes rogue, to remove the threats. You will be constantly bombarded by such messages as:

Live PC Care Tray Agent
Live PC Care has been minimized to tray and continues to working in the backround.

It keeps on reminding you (in a poor grammar), that the rogue is still there. However, even if you pay for the program, you will only lose your money, and expose your financial information to a third party, so in order to save yourself and your computer, remove FakeVimes from your system using a reliable security program that will terminate every single process related to FakeVimes and will help you to get your computer back to normal.
