Antispyware Vista, also known as AntispywareVista, is the newest scam, taking over computer systems. Being a fake spyware remover, Antispyware Vista has one main goal: to coerce money from unsuspecting computer users, by insisting they purchase the full licensed version of Antispyware Vista. This rogue is a duplicate of Vista Internet Security and just like its predecessor; Antispyware Vista tends to make use of a backdoor Trojan in order to infiltrate the user’s system.
As soon as Antispyware Vista is in the computer system, it will create numerous amounts of fake malware entities in the system, furthering the claims that the system has been inundated with PC threats. This is usually not the case – the thing is – Antispyware Vista will “detect” dummy files – and alert the user to them, claiming that the only way to rid the system of these ‘detected threats’ would be to purchase the full version of Antispyware Vista. This is not the case! Do not fall for this scam tactic – instead, remove Antispyware Vista as soon as it has been detected.
