Windows Antivirus Suite

If you must download and install a reliable antivirus tool, Windows Antivirus Suite is definitely not something you can trust. It is a rogue antispyware application which means that the program is a dangerous computer infection that only pretends it is a reliable computer security tool. A few years ago, users would often be fooled into thinking that the likes of Windows Antivirus Suite are reliable computer security programs. However, now everyone can clearly see that one must remove Windows Antivirus Suite from the computer as soon as possible, because the infection is very intrusive and extremely annoying.

The most annoying thing about Windows Antivirus Suite is that it successfully paralyzes your system. The same behavior is exhibited by other applications from the same Rogue.FakeVimes family, including Windows AntiBreach Help, Windows AntiBreachTool, Windows Paramount Protection and others. There has been an onslaught of these fake antivirus programs lately, and all of them have been created to enter your system surreptitiously and then extort your hard-earned money from you.

Windows Antivirus Suite generally gets installed via fake online malware scanners or spam email attachments. It is also very likely that your computer has been infected with a Trojan or any other type of malware prior to Windows Antivirus Suite entering the system. Computer infections often come in packs, so the best way to protect yourself from such threats is to avoid browsing unfamiliar and unreliable websites, and run regular system scans with licensed computer security applications.

When this rogue is installed on your computer, it is configured to run automatically each time your system boots up. In fact, once the setup is complete, Windows Antivirus Suite restarts your PC, and when the system loads, it launches a fake system scan that detects such “infections” as Trojan-ArcBom, P2P-Worm.Win32 or Trojan-Spy and many others. To make the matters worse, Windows Antivirus Suite also denies Internet access and even blocks explorer.exe which does not allow you to access your Start menu or any of your files anymore.

All of that is done in order to push you into spending your money for nothing. Even if a user knows that Windows Antivirus Suite is a malicious computer infection, he/she may end up spending the money out of pure helplessness. Nevertheless, paying your money to these cyber criminals is definitely not an option. You can cancel out of the infection symptoms TEMPORARILY by activating Windows Antivirus Suite with one of the following activation keys:
