Do you know what Windows Antispy Network is?
It never ceases to amaze the lengths developers of rogue antispyware applications will go to in order to tout their rubbish applications, and Windows Antispy Network is no different. This rogue, which forms part of the well despised fake Microsoft Security Essentials scam, also originates from a long line of fake applications such as Windows Troubles Solver.
Windows Antispy Network is known for its crafty infection methods and will use any tactics at its disposal to facilitate its surreptitious infiltration of the system. These can include using browser hijackers and online flash ads infected with Windows Antispy Network. In recent times it has also been reported that Windows Antispy Network makes use of fake online malware scanners as part of its online marketing campaign.
This rogue will start its attack against the PC once it securely roots itself in the system. This will happen by Windows Antispy Network initiating a fake system scan each time the user logs on to Windows. The fake scan will yield various falsely generated results of supposed threats on the system, all in an effort to panic the user into paying for its rubbish software. It will also spam the user with various fake security messages in the form of incessant pop ups.
Other symptoms reportedly associated with Windows Antispy Network include the user being unable to execute applications on the system, as well as blocked Internet connections. It will also increase erratic system behavior, and cause severely poor system performance.
At the end of the day the only way to limit the damage caused, and to restore the good working of the system will be to destroy Windows Antispy Network. The safest and most effective way of going about this remains to invest in a powerful and genuine security tool which will protect the system against similar attacks in future.
In non techie terms:
Windows Antispy Network is a fake security tool unable to live up to any of its promises. Take back what is rightfully yours and obliterate Windows Antispy Network immediately.
