PC Anti Malware Removal Instructions

PC Anti Malware is rogue antispyware designed to scam a user out of his or her money. Although manual infection can happen when an unsuspecting user downloads the file, infection more commonly occurs through a Zlob Trojan disguised as ActiveX video codec. Once on a machine, PC Anti Malware will attempt to convince the user that their PC is riddled with malware by bombarding them with pop ups and fake security alerts urging them to take action by investing in the full version of PC Anti Malware. Users who fall for this scam lose their money and put both their sensitive personal information and the health of their computer at risk. When left resident on a computer, PC Anti Malware will often download more spyware and severely slow the ability of the computer to function properly. Browsers may also be hijacked.
