Total Anti Malware Protection Description

Total Anti Malware Protection Screenshot 1Like other types of scamware, Total Anti Malware Protection's most visible symptoms are its attempts to pass itself off as an anti-malware product through fake system alerts, infection-riddled system scans and other types of fraudulent information. Total Anti Malware Protection is a rogue anti-malware program that bears many of the hallmark traits of a member of FakeVimes, including causing browser redirects and blocking Windows diagnostic software. SpywareRemove.com malware analysts encourage you to set any temptation to pay attention to security-related information from Total Anti Malware Protection aside, which has no ability to detect any kind of PC threat, and remove Total Anti Malware Protection with a genuine anti-malware scanner.

Why You'll Want to Protect Your PC from Total Anti Malware Protection

Total Anti Malware Protection, contrary to its name, is unable to find or remove any kind of malicious software or block any malicious activity that targets your computer, although Total Anti Malware Protection's various pop-ups and fake security features will try to convince you that such isn't the case. While buying Total Anti Malware Protection is the first thing its criminal coders would like you to do, SpywareRemove.com malware research team sees no benefit to doing this, and note that it's also likely to open up your financial accounts to the possibility of other fraudulent charges. Besides providing fake system scan results and security-oriented pop-ups, Total Anti Malware Protection may also:

  • Redirect your online searches to hazardous sites.
  • Block security and system diagnostics programs, including baseline Windows tools like Task Manager and the Registry Editor.
  • Make other system changes that disable security-related features or otherwise make your PC less secure than usual against future attacks. Some of these changes may include setting file permissions to block any attempts to remove Total Anti Malware Protection's own alterations.

What You Can Do to Break Out of Total Anti Malware Protection's Constricting Idea of 'Protection'

It should go without saying that, due to the attacks noted above, Total Anti Malware Protection should always be considered a danger to your computer's security instead of an enhancer of it. Therefore, SpywareRemove.com malware experts suggest that you use the same methods to delete Total Anti Malware Protection that you would use to delete similar types of program-blocking scamware like Privacy Guard Pro, PrivacyGuard Pro 2.0, Extra Antivirus, Fast Antivirus 2009, Presto TuneUp, Windows Security Suite, Smart Virus Eliminator, Packed.Generic.245, Volcano Security Suite, Windows Enterprise Suite, Enterprise Suite, Additional Guard, Live PC Care, PC Live Guard, Live Enterprise Suite, Security Antivirus, My Security Wall, CleanUp Antivirus and Smart Security.

This may require that you disable Total Anti Malware Protection's startup routine before you can remove Total Anti Malware Protection's with appropriate software. Easily-implemented strategies for launching Windows without Total Anti Malware Protection coming along for the ride include booting in Safe Mode, booting your OS from a network-shared hard drive or booting from a removable drive device (a CD, USB thumb drive or similar).
