Do you know what WinActive Antivirus is?
WinActive Antivirus or WinActiveAntivirus, is a fake anti-spyware program that may perform illicit tactics to get a computer user to purchase a full version of WinActive Antivirus.

In non-techie terms:
WinActive Antivirus is known to be installed through a Trojan infection or directly from a malicious website that advertises rogue anti-spyware programs.
