Vista Security 2013 Description
Vista Security 2013 is a member of a branch of FakeRean, a group of similar rogue anti-malware programs that display inaccurate alerts, block other programs and attempt to swindle victims for the cost of a software registration fee. Despite having the basic appearance of an anti-malware scanner, including simulations of system scans and a range of different pop-up warnings, Vista Security 2013 can’t detect or delete any form of malware. Since scamware from Vista Security 2013′s segment of FakeRean tends to be responsible for significant attacks against security-related applications, SpywareRemove.com malware analysts recommend removing Vista Security 2013 with actual anti-malware programs by whatever means are necessary.

Aside from its appearance as a fake anti-malware product, Vista Security 2013 may also attack your ability to use other programs, with notable symptoms that SpywareRemove.com malware research team considers especially noteworthy as follows:
- Web pages that display unusual error messages instead of the intended website’s content.
- Pop-up alerts about program infection or damage that block your ability to use a given program.
- An inability to use the features of basic Windows programs like Windows Update, Firewall or Security Center.
Because these changes make your PC vulnerable to future attacks from other sources, SpywareRemove.com malware experts recommend that you treat Vista Security 2013 as a mid-to-high-level threat to your computer’s security until Vista Security 2013 can be removed.
Why All of Vista Security 2013′s Security Doesn’t Amount to Jack
