Sysinternals Antivirus is a rogue anti-spyware application. Sysinternals Antivirus is basically another variant of the AKM Antivirus 2010 Pro program which is a fake security application that uses various tricks to force users into purchasing something that they do not need. Sysinternals Antivirus may be installed through a malicious source such as a web page designed by hackers to extort money from unsuspecting computer users.

Sysinternals Antivirus uses bogus system scan results to make computer users believe that they need to purchase a full version of Sysinternals Antivirus to remove the detected infections. Not only is Sysinternals Antivirus incapable of detecting legitimate computer parasites, but it cannot remove them either. It is highly recommended that Sysinternals Antivirus be safely detected and removed with a good spyware removal tool.
