Antimalware Tool

Should you not be in the mood to have your PC overrun by a rubbish rogue security tool that will prove more disastrous than any good, then you’ll certainly want to get rid of Antimalware Tool immediately. This rogue antispyware application, which originates from the same family as Internet Defender or Antimalware defender, hides itself from the user after it breaks into the system until it starts its attack. It will work hard to convince the user of its legitimacy, but Antimalware Tool has no ability to detect or remove any type of threat from the system, and is indeed a malicious infection in itself.

Antimalware Tool first entered the market late in March 2011. It can enter the system in a variety of ways, including through corrupt downloads obtained from third party downloads and through using bogus online malware scanners and seditious browser hijackers. Once it securely roots itself in the system it will start its attack on the PC.

This rogue adds start up entries so that it runs automatically when Windows is started. It will initiate a fake system scan, informing the user of various fake security threats on the system, including Win32/Renos.JI, PWS, Win32/Yahoopass.A, and Win32/Tedroo.AA. Of course none of these fake threats even exist, and Antimalware Tool only claims to be able to remove them from the system. It will warn the user of the presence of these fake threats on the system by using falsely generated security notifications such as the following:
