Activeris Antimalware Description


Activeris Antimalware Screenshot 1Activeris Antimalware is a rogue anti-malware program that provides alerts about infections and various PC security issues, but with an emphasis on delivering fake information instead of legitimate threat analyses. As a probable offshoot of a previous deceptive product, Activeris Antimalware provides all of the typical risks of scamware, including their tendencies to block other products that provide real security features, along with a name change to prevent you from identifying Activeris Antimalware so easily as its forebears. Malware experts see no reason to recommend anything other than deleting Activeris Antimalware, which should be replaced with legitimate anti-malware products from reputable companies.

The Software 'Solution' to a Threat that's Part of the Problem

Activeris Antimalware is one of the two most common variants of scamware, a fake anti-malware product with limited to no ability to detect real threats, but full-fledged functions for detecting fake infections, albeit ones that are identified by technical aliases that resemble legitimate alerts. Activeris Antimalware is most closely related to Advanced System Protector and other offshoots of that particular rogue anti-malware program, and, like it, is meant to encourage the purchase of its software without providing legitimate security features that would warrant purchasing.

The foremost theme of Activeris Antimalware's tactic is the detection of numerous threats on your PC, which will be displayed through its imitation scans and pop-up warnings, but malware researchers have found other causes for considering Activeris Antimalware to be a threat. Even when ignoring its scam-related functions, Activeris Antimalware has been found to include capabilities for blocking other applications.

In theory, most Windows applications may be vulnerable to this attack, but Activeris Antimalware currently centers its efforts on depriving compromised PCs of access to legitimate security programs. Accordingly, your ability to use security software or even basic Windows tools like the Task Manager may be crippled, as long as Activeris Antimalware is active.

The Active Way to Resolve an Activeris Antimalware Dilemma

Activeris Antimalware can't detect or remove actual threats to any meaningful degree, and its software-blocking functions are an extremely noticeable impediment to the basic safety of your computer. Malware researchers have classified Activeris Antimalware as a threat, and like with any threat, removing Activeris Antimalware should take priority over all other tasks. If Activeris Antimalware blocks any real anti-malware utilities in use, disabling Activeris Antimalware beforehand is encouraged, and generally possible through standardized anti-malware techniques like restarting your OS with the Safe Mode option (which is available through Windows and most other OSes, by default).

Activeris Antimalware is marketed at the website activeris.net as one of the latest iterations of a software security strategy. Sadly, even though Activeris Antimalware has been active for several months, most PC security companies haven't updated their threat databases to classify Activeris Antimalware as toxic. Updated and advanced anti-malware tools are recommended for blocking Activeris Antimalware, but malware experts also commend the full use of basic Web-browsing safety features, as a backup defense.
