AVAntispyware is a malicious antispyware application that appears to be a clone of MS Antispyware 2009. This program installs through Trojans that reside on questionable websites. These sites usually advertise free anti-malware scans, which are bogus. The user will receive pop-up security alerts warning that infections exist on the PC, and suggests they install AVAntispyware. These warnings will be incessant. Immediate removal of AVAntispyware is indicated, because it poses a danger to your computer. Rogue applications such as AVAntispyware are made to frighten the user in to buying a product that actually has no ability whatsoever to detect or remove threats.

Recommended Action: Remove Promptly
The user should not attempt to manually remove AVAntispyware, as this is a complex process. After disconnection from the network, all related files must be deleted and running processes killed. If any related files are not deleted, AVAntispyware will re-install upon start up and can cause further damage to the PC. Complete removal and restoration of security can be obtained by using Spyzooka, as it is the only anti-spyware application that guarantees complete removal with only one scan.
