Do you know what Vista Antivirus 2012 is?
Developers of rogueware have been hard at work creating a family of rogue antispyware applications capable of adapting to different environments. Vista Antivirus 2012 has the ability to change its name depending on which operating system the user is running. If the user runs Windows XP, the rogue will change its name to XP Antivirus 2012, and the same with Windows 7. However, despite this clever trick it is exactly the same application.
Vista Antivirus 2012 enters the system surreptitiously and will remain hidden until it is ready to start its attack against the system. It makes use of various established forms of infection, including infected online flash ads, bogus online malware scanners and seditiously harmful browser hijackers. Once it enters the system, Vista Antivirus 2012 will install itself as a single executable file, and will launch itself each time the user attempts to launch any other executable.
This rogue will also disable any security software on the system, and will prevent the user from accessing the Internet. This is done in an effort to prevent the user from running or downloading any type of application which may be able to identify and remove Vista Antivirus 2012 from the system.
In order to regain control of your PC you will need to destroy Vista Antivirus 2012 immediately. Do this safely by employing the removal power of a genuine security tool which will not only erase Vista Antivirus 2012 but also protect against similar future attacks.
In non techie terms:
Vista Antivirus 2012 is a fake security tool unable to live up to any of its promises. Limit the damage this rogue will cause to your PC and destroy Vista Antivirus 2012 immediately.
