Windows Vista Antivirus 2012 Description
Windows Vista Antivirus 2012 is a fake antivirus scanner that displays warnings and scan results that aren’t linked to the presence of genuine PC threats on your computer. Because Windows Vista Antivirus 2012′s family of scamware is capable of using different names to match the OS that’s being infiltrated, you may also see Windows Vista Antivirus 2012 under names such as Windows XP Antivirus 2012 or Windows 7 Antivirus 2012. Even though Windows Vista Antivirus 2012 will do whatever it takes to reassure you that it’s the only thing that can make your PC safe, SpywareRemove.com malware researchers warn that Windows Vista Antivirus 2012 doesn’t have any ability to detect or remove viruses or other types of PC threats. Instead of taking its advice, you should remove Windows Vista Antivirus 2012 with an actual anti-malware product, and be mindful of the possibility of browser redirect attacks and software-blocking behavior until this is accomplished.
Windows Vista Antivirus 2012 – Not as Windows-Friendly as It Appears to Be
Windows Vista Antivirus 2012, although Windows Vista Antivirus 2012 markets itself as a reputable and independent product, is, in reality, a straight copy of other scamware programs from the Rogue:Win32/FakeRean family, such as Windows Vista Internet Security 2012, Windows Vista Security 2012, Antispyware XP 2009, Security Central, Vista Antivirus Pro 2010 and Win 7 AntiMalware 2010. Other than minor changes to their visual designs and names, these fake scanners can all be considered identically malicious and frivolous in terms of their threat detection capabilities. Some of the error messages that Windows Vista Antivirus 2012 may show you include, but aren’t restricted to:

Since Windows Vista Antivirus 2012 only creates these warnings to make you believe that you should waste money on its registered version, there’s no real reason to spend money on Windows Vista Antivirus 2012 or to pay any credence to its alerts. SpywareRemove.com malware analysts also caution that Windows Vista Antivirus 2012 may launch inaccurate system scans without provocation whenever Windows starts; these scans should be disregarded just as much as Windows Vista Antivirus 2012′s fake security pop-ups.
Being Aware of What Windows Vista Antivirus 2012 is Really ‘Anti’ Towards
Windows Vista Antivirus 2012 may pretend to detect and destroy viruses, but SpywareRemove.com malware researchers have perceived that Windows Vista Antivirus 2012 is far more likely to try to attack your web browser or legitimate security applications. Until you get rid of Windows Vista Antivirus 2012 with a suitable anti-malware product, in addition to suffering through inaccurate AV detection, you may also experience:
- Issues with accessing popular brands of anti-malware programs, including the presence of a fake Security Center applet that replaces your real Security Center with a worthless look-alike. This useless applet has no function except to link you to Windows Vista Antivirus 2012′s website.
- Web browser redirects to Windows Vista Antivirus 2012′s site. These redirects may occur in any browser due to changes in your Registry’s settings.
- Windows Vista Antivirus 2012 launching itself without your permission, either when Windows starts or whenever you try to load an .exe file.
Even though Windows Vista Antivirus 2012 may include a removal tool, SpywareRemove.com malware researchers discourage any attempts to use this, since it will leave some components of Windows Vista Antivirus 2012, such as the Fake Windows Security Center, behind on your PC.
