Windows Antivirus Release

What is Windows Antivirus Release?

Windows Antivirus Release is an unreliable computer application, which is also a clone of such cunning applications as Windows Interactive Safety, Windows Ultimate Safeguard and others. The malware, along with its predecessors, belongs to the Rogue.VirusDoctor family, which is a group of rogue products having the same interface and operating characteristics. Windows Antivirus Release does not differ from other clones, because it seeks to deceive the computer user into buying its so-called full version to remove all types of malware.

As Windows Antivirus Release only pretends to be an authoritative computer application, it should be deleted. The malware supposedly scans the system and presents threats, which do not exist in the system. It is done to scare the user into believing that his/her system is infected, and, to achieve it, real and imaginary names of threats are used. For example, the scan may show such infections as Server-Proxy, Trojan-PSW, Spoofer and many others as well as some malware widely known as malicious. Some of them are Rootkit.Win32.KernelBot, Trojan.Win32.Agent and AdWare.Win32.BHO. It is inadvisable to try to delete all the infections presented manually, because they are not present in the system, and the removal of imaginary infections may have unintended consequences such as impairment of the system’s performance.

Additionally, there is no need to trust bogus pop-ups, which are produced to trick the user. Below, some of them are presented to help users recognize the infection:

Potential malware detected.
It is recommended to activate protection and perform a thorough system scan to remove the malware.

Keylogger activity detected. System information security is at risk. It is recommended to activate protection and run a full system scan.

The recommendations claiming that the full version should be activated are very frequent, and it is important that they are ignored. For example, even the scan result table of the malware has an encouraging line which is provided below:

Activate Windows Antivirus Release to get ultimate protection against Identity Theft, Viruses, Malware and other threats!

The truth is that Windows Antivirus Release may be the only potential piece of malware, which should be deleted, because it is also capable of producing malfunctions in the system. The cunning application limits access to the Internet, hides Task Manager and Registry Editor and disables some executable files so that it can be delete neither manually nor automatically. Nevertheless, the user can remove Windows Antivirus Release in either way if the following instructions are followed.

Automatic Windows Antivirus Release Removal

To remove Windows Antivirus Release automatically is nothing to compare with the manual removal. An antispyware tool deletes the malware automatically and does not leave the rogue’s components, which might happen if an inexperience user attempts to terminate the infection manually. As the easiest and safest way to deal with the problem is to download and install a legitimate malware removal tool, the Internet connection should be accessible.

1) To restore the access to the Internet, activate the rogue by using this key 0W000-000B0-00T00-E0020. Once you can use your browser, download and install SpyHunter to remove the infection.

2) Use any other computer to download SpyHunter if you do not want to download it on the infected computer.
