Windows Antivirus System

With all the myriad of threats facing healthy PCs these days it has simply become impossible to protect your PC against harmful threats such as Windows Antivirus System. This seditious rogue antispyware program uses authentic looking Windows graphics and trademarks in order to convince naïve consumers that it is indeed a genuine and powerful security tool. This is evident from Windows Antivirus System’s misleading name, and also the use of the well-known Windows orb in its GUI, to name but a few examples.

The truth is that Windows Antivirus System not only forms part of the much publicized and hated fake Microsoft Security Essentials scam, but also derives from many other well-known rogue security applications namely Windows Necessary Firewall and Windows Activity Inspector, to name only a few. This damning evidence alone proves that Windows Antivirus System is nothing more than a malicious instrument developed and distributed by criminal developers out to rip consumers off.

Windows Antivirus System is distributed via fake online malware scanners emulating the workings of real system scanners, and infected online flash ads carrying the Windows Antivirus System infection. Browser hijacking websites using drive-by download techniques have also risen in popularity of late.

Because of Windows Antivirus System’s stealth intrusion of the system the user will have no idea of the presence of the rogue until it decides to start its attack against the system. This will only happen once it is securely rooted in the system, and will kick off its attack by initiating unwarranted fake system security scans. These scans will inevitably report on bogus security threats supposedly crippling the system. A lot of Windows Antivirus System’s success is achieved here, as their graphics seem rather convincing to the untrained eye. Windows Antivirus System will pretend to scan and update the following Windows components:

Computer Safety
Network Security
Private Data Protection
Media Components
Hard Disk Optimization
Memory and Devices

In certain cases Windows Antivirus System has been known to report genuine Windows system files as infections, and should the user remove these files he could seriously and permanently damage the operating system. As a further attack on the PC Windows Antivirus System will spam the user with fake security alerts in the form of pop up messages. These fake pop ups will usually contain a call to action which if acted on will make only make it that much easier for Windows Antivirus System to rip the user off. Never believe anything Windows Antivirus System has to say, and never pay for any Windows Antivirus System product.

Other reported symptoms by victims of Windows Antivirus System range from blocked Internet connections to extremely poor system performance. Others complained about the random generating and deleting of Desktop items, and the inability to launch any type of application on the infected system. In order to limit the damage this rogue is sure to cause your PC, rather get rid of Windows Antivirus System as soon as possible. This can safest be achieved by using a powerful security tool which will destroy Windows Antivirus System for good. This should also adequately protect you from future infections should you keep the security application updated.
