Fake Antispyware and Antivirus Programs
Below is a list of the top fake antivirus and antispyware programs that are plaguing the internet. These programs employ various tactics to get users to install them. Their tactics include masquerading as video codec that enables watching a streaming movie, or an offer to scan your computer for viruses and trojans. These products are heavily promoted via one of many fraudulent Fake Scanner Sites. Once installed, these fakes pretend to perform system scans and report fake / exaggerated results. The purpose of these scans is to try and scare the user into purchasing the full version of the application. Additionally, these programs periodically launch pop-up windows and system security alert messages stating that your computer is infected. Some of the more advanced fakes pack a trojan of their own that allows them to disable almost all antivirus products from running as well as to block access to many security websites.
