Sysinternals Antivirus

Sysinternals Antivirus is a nasty rogue antispyware application. Sysinternals Antivirus is a malicious rogue antispyware application that makes use of manipulative and deceptive tactics in order to try and obtain your hard-earned money. Sysinternals Antivirus is one big scam which has been designed by a horrible bunch of people who just want your money. You need to not be fooled by any of the tricks that Sysinternals Antivirus may use to scare you into believing that you have all types of malicious threats running on your computer.

Sysinternals Antivirus may display some of the following symptoms:
• Is your computer's performance slower than usual?
• Are you receiving annoying pop ups?
• Are things changing on your machine, that you didn't change yourself?
• Do you see a scan report that has taken place, which you didn't start?
• Are you receiving fake scan report results?
• Is your computer generating scary system security notifications?
• Are you being asked to buy a full version in order to rectify these problems?
• Is your internet connection acting differently to usual?

If you suspect that you may have Sysinternals Antivirus running on your machine, then you need to remove it immediately. You have the option of the manual removal process or alternatively the automatic removal process. You need to be aware of the fact that if you decide to choose the manual removal process, the risks are very high of you causing even more additional damage to your computer. It is seriously within your best interest to make use of the automatic removal process, which will both detect as well as effectively go about removing Sysinternals Antivirus for you.

When you remove Sysinternals Antivirus, you will no longer have to suffer the annoying infection symptoms that include fake security notifications. These notifications pop up every now and then, and they are generated in order to strengthen the impression that your system is infected with Email-Worm.Win32.Merond.a, Trojan.Win32.Agent.azsy and other dangerous "threats" that are supposedly detected during the full system scan.

Sysinternals Antivirus also claims that a number of your documents and programs are infected with malware and thus you are not allowed to open or launch them. According to the rogue this is done in order to protect your system from further infections, but that is obviously not true. The programs infected, according to Sysinternals Antivirus, includes iexplorer.exe, wmplayer.exe, notepad.exe, explorer.exe, user32.exe and so on. These fake claims are also followed by fraudulent security notifications:

Your computer is being attacked by an Internet Virus. It could be a password-stealing attack, a trojan-dropped or similar.

svchost.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.
If you were in the middle of something, the information you were working on might be lost.
Please tell Microsoft about this problem.
We have created an error report that you can send to us. We will treat this report as confidential and anonymous.

Sysinternals Antivirus makes it seem as though it is a part of the Windows Security Center, but it obviously is not true. You have to ignore every single message received from this fake antivirus program, otherwise (if you do end up paying for it), your financial data will be leaked to a third party, and your account will be illegally accessed in order to steal all of your money.

Remove Sysinternals Antivirus right now with a legitimate antimalware application and save yourself the trouble of dealing with the rogue any longer. You can also delete it manually, but it is not recommended if you are not an experienced computer user. After all, if you terminate Sysinternals Antivirus with a legitimate antimalware program, the program will also protect your from similar attacks in the future.
