Antivirus Security 2013 is a new variant of Winwebsec, a group of fake anti-malware programs that encourage their victims to spend money by alarming them with a range of fake malware alerts. Antivirus Security 2013 can't detect real types of malicious software any more than any of its vast numbers of relatives, but will display fake warnings regarding attacks, infections and other system issues until you remove Antivirus Security 2013 from your computer. Because purchasing Antivirus Security 2013 will not accomplish anything other than giving money and private information to criminals, SpywareRemove.com malware experts recommend that you delete Antivirus Security 2013 without trying to register Antivirus Security 2013 – ordinarily, with a real equivalent of the anti-malware software that Antivirus Security 2013 disguises itself as being.

Antivirus Security 2013: a New Color for a Tiger that Hasn't Changed Its Stripes

Instead of the memorable pink theme of previous versions of WinWeb Security-based scamware programs, Antivirus Security 2013 sports a new skin in an eye-catching green, but in terms of all its functions and features, still is a straight copy of old fake anti-malware scanners. Belying its looks as a supposed security product, Antivirus Security 2013 will monitor any files that you attempt to launch and block most programs that Antivirus Security 2013 doesn't have white-listed, including various security applications (Windows Task Manager, MSConfig, Registry Editor and so on). Even though Antivirus Security 2013 will display warning pop-ups that claim these programs are suffering from various forms of corruption, infection and/or other damage, SpywareRemove.com malware experts stress that Antivirus Security 2013 will block any applications without regard for their well-being.

Antivirus Security 2013 also includes browser-hijacking functions. These functions let Antivirus Security 2013 block various sites, which Antivirus Security 2013 will do primarily for the sake of promoting itself in fake error pages. You may also find yourself redirected to malicious sites that are related to Antivirus Security 2013's family of fake anti-malware scanners such as Tech-ava-soft.org.

Besides its superficial appearance and an arsenal of outwardly-convincing pop-up alerts, Antivirus Security 2013 doesn't have anything in common with real anti-malware products and is an active threat to your computer's safety. While Antivirus Security 2013 will request you to spend money on its registration, SpywareRemove.com malware experts advise against buying Antivirus Security 2013, which is unnecessary for its removal and doesn't even guarantee that Antivirus Security 2013's attacks will stop.

Burying Antivirus Security 2013 Next to Its Fellow Ne'Er-Do-Wells

The nascent Antivirus Security 2013 doesn't need to be treated any differently from any other fake anti-malware program based on the Winwebsec family. As a danger to your computer that interferes with your standard PC usage, Antivirus Security 2013 is a threat to be exterminated on sight, much like Antivirus Security, System Security, AntiSpyware Pro 2009, Total Security, Total Security 2009, Security Tool, Trojan.RogueAV.a.gen, System Adware Scanner 2010, FakeAlert-KW.e, Advanced Security Tool 2010, System Tool 2011, MS Removal Tool, Antivirus Center, Security Shield, Personal Shield Pro, Advanced PC Shield 2012, Security Sphere 2012 and Futurro Antivirus.

SpywareRemove.com malware analysts recommend booting into Safe Mode, which will stop Antivirus Security 2013 from blocking any other programs you might need to use to disinfect your PC. You also may consider booting your PC from a separate OS – particularly since Antivirus Security 2013 is a Windows-only form of scamware. With full access to your software restored, you can use whatever anti-malware program you like to delete Antivirus Security 2013 and remove the symptoms that are associated with Antivirus Security 2013.
