AntiMalware is not what its name suggests. Being a clone of the following rogue antispyware applications Active Security and PC Scout, AntiMalware has its place in the list of high risk rogue security tools. AntiMalware tends to infiltrate and is propagated via the aid of Trojan infections, which spread by pretending to be video codecs or updates for Adobe Flash. Once installed, Soft Stronghold will continue to report and display numerous pop-ups, saying that the system in question is inundated with infections - ultimately offering a solution to ‘fix’ the problem.
The solution being to purchase its full version. The paid version of AntiMalware does NOT exist and neither do the ‘threats’ detected by AntiMalware. This dubious tool, AntiMalware is just another bogus rogue security program which MUST NOT be downloaded or purchased under any circumstance. Should the computer user have downloaded AntiMalware, the best thing to do moving forward would be to remove this application and all its components, ASAP!
One of the most dangerous things about AntiMalware is the fact that it tries to close or shut down security programs that are installed on your computer. The fake AV program can tries to shut down such security applications as NOD32, Avira AntiVir, Kaspersky, Sophos and so on. It tries to present itself as a legitimate antimalware tool and performs a full system scan that "detects" the following infections in your system: Trojan-Clicker.Win32.NetBuie.b, Rootkit.Win32.Agent.pp, Trojan-Downloader.JS.Multi.ca, Net-Worm.Win32.DipNet.d and so on.
The list of malware presented on AntiMalware's scan results contains names of actual computer threats, but it does not mean that you are infected with them. AntiMalware only projects the idea of infection and then wants you to spend your money on a program that cannot live up to its promises.
It is important that you ignore the following notifications delivered by AntiMalware:
User's activity loggers detected!
AntiMalware detected the virus of the harmful program on your computer!
These security messages are false, and the rogue only tries to force you into revealing your financial information to a third party. Close AntiMalware window immediately and acquire a legitimate security tool to terminate this infection. It is possible to remove AntiMalware manually, but it is not recommended unless you are a computer expert. You have to protect your computer against similar infections no matter what, so do not hesitate to invest in a reliable computer security tool.
