Anti-Malware Lab is another rogue antispyware application which you need to purge from your system. Certaintly, it might be tiresome to keep up with all the new malware that you need to safeguard your computer against, but this one here is a terrible threat which you cannot take lightly. Anti-Malware Lab is a direct clone of such notorious rogues as Best Malware Protection, PC Security Guardian, Internet Security Essential and many others which come from the same dangerous nest of fake antivirus programs. Therefore, it is more than obvious that Anti-Malware Lab is no where near “anti” it is an absolute “malware lab”.
This rogue copies the layout of your operating system. For example, if your computer runs on Windows XP, then Ani-Malware Lab will look like an integral part of your OS, mimicking the appearance of your Windows XP interface. It makes it look like Anti-Malware Lab is a legitimate piece of program, and a lot of users get tricked this way into believing that everything this rogue tells them is correct. And the things Anti-Malware Lab is telling are not so good.
To begin with, when this rogue is installed in your computer, it runs a fake system scan and founds around 20 “potential” threats. Among viruses and Trojans it finds there are Trojan-Spy.Win32.WMPatch, Trojan-PSW.Win32.Antigen.a, Virus.BAT.Gray.705 and many more. Were you to look up these parasites on the internet you would see that they are real and not made up. This also should add to the credibility of Anti-Malware Lab, and it just shows that the criminals behind this rogue are serious about what they do.
But the fake nature of this program gives itself away in the most trivial things. For example, at the very bottom of the program’s window you will see a notice “Anti-Malware Lab not activated. Plese activate to get ultimate protection.” The poor grammar in these two sentences obviously contributes to a bunch of evidences that proves the malicious nature of Anti-Malware Lab. You can actually activate the rogue using this code:
But once you do it, make sure you remove Anti-Malware Lab from your system completely. Activating the program helps you with removal, and if you are not exactly sure how it is possible to perform it manually, get yourself a legitimate security program which will terminate Anti-Malware Lab automatically. The bottom line in this situation is that you need to get rid of this rogue completely, before it damaged your computer and stole your money.
