Antivirus Antimalware 2011

Posted: March 26, 2011

Antivirus Antimalware 2011 is a recent rogue anti-virus program that earns the user's trust by pretending to detect infections - and then promptly stabs them in the back by causing serious security problems and other issues. Removing Antivirus Antimalware 2011 is an urgent priority because this rogue threat can attack your web browser and prevent you from using anti-malware scanners. Although Antivirus Antimalware 2011 will deliver repeated warnings about serious problems with your PC, these popup messages are fake and are never a reason to purchase this malicious software. Instead, delete Antivirus Antimalware 2011 by using traditional malware removal methods.

Not So Much 'Anti' in This Malware

Antivirus Antimalware 2011 is a fraud in software form that tries to make the user trust and need it as a way to steal credit card information and make the PC vulnerable to other attacks. This is done by creating frequent error messages that state highly distressing problems with the PC - but if your computer is actually suffering from any of these supposed problems, it's incidental. Antivirus Antimalware 2011 can't detect real threats and is happy to throw up popup messages at preprogrammed intervals.

These error messages can coincide with more dangerous attacks by Antivirus Antimalware 2011:

  • The rogue program Antivirus Antimalware 2011 has been reported to interfere with the user's internet-based activities, especially with regards to procuring solutions to malware infection. You may be prevented from using anti-malware websites due to a repeatedly reset connection.
  • In a related attack technique, Antivirus Antimalware 2011 may also hijack your web browser. This lets it block off websites completely or force you to visit a malicious website. This can be used to display fake content or embed links, and can even change search engine results.
  • Anti-malware applications may not function properly if Antivirus Antimalware 2011 is active. The program may refuse to start entirely, or it may launch right only to crash in the middle of a scan. This can prevent you from removing Antivirus Antimalware 2011 easily and leaves you open to attack by other malware, too.
  • Antivirus Antimalware 2011 has been indicated to abuse the Windows Registry in a way that lets the rogue threat start up automatically when the PC is booted. If you're allowed to close Antivirus Antimalware 2011 once it launches, it may still run as a hidden background memory process.
