Win 8 Antivirus 2013 Description
Win 8 Antivirus 2013 pretends to be a safety-enhancing anti-malware scanner with a small range of typical security features, but as far as SpywareRemove.com malware analysts are concerned, Win 8 Antivirus 2013 just is another sample of FakeRean scamware. Like the numerous rogue anti-malware products that preceded it, Win 8 Antivirus 2013 doesn’t have any actual anti-malware features but attempts to make up for displaying inaccurate warning messages and scans that include lists of infections that aren’t on your computer. Because Win 8 Antivirus 2013′s branch of the FakeRean family is also noted for a tendency to hijack web browsers and block other programs, Win 8 Antivirus 2013 should be considered a danger to your PC until Win 8 Antivirus 2013 is removed by an anti-malware program that can provide all of the security functions that Win 8 Antivirus 2013 lacks.
Win 8 Antivirus 2013 and the System Alerts That Cater to Criminals
Win 8 Antivirus 2013 appears to include a firewall, system-scanning functions and other utilities that can help when detecting, blocking or removing malware from your computer. Unfortunately, these appearances only are skin-deep, since SpywareRemove.com malware analysts have verified that Win 8 Antivirus 2013 isn’t able to detect or remove malware of any type. While Win 8 Antivirus 2013′s alerts may identify PC threats by industry-accepted technical names and make various claims as to the nature of ongoing attacks (such as unauthorized port access or identity theft), Win 8 Antivirus 2013′s system information is fake and should be ignored.
Win 8 Antivirus 2013′s antics are common to the FakeRean group of rogue anti-malware, anti-spyware, anti-virus and general security programs, and like its relatives, Win 8 Antivirus 2013′s main intent is to force you to purchase its software registration key.

The Trouble You Invite in When You Let Win 8 Antivirus 2013 Have Its Way with Your PC
Win 8 Antivirus 2013 usually is of foremost concern for its rabble-rousing fake alerts that try to make you think that your machine is been attacked from multiple sources.

Major attacks by Win 8 Antivirus 2013 also may include:
- Browser changes that block websites with inaccurate error messages.

Win 8 Antivirus 2013 may need to be disabled before Win 8 Antivirus 2013 can be removed safely. SpywareRemove.com malware experts recommend rebooting into Safe Mode before you launch any anti-malware scans to evict Win 8 Antivirus 2013.
