Do you know what Windows Antivirus Adviser is?
Windows Antivirus Adviser is another fake scanner that falls into the category of rogue anti-virus. It belongs to FakeVimes family of infections and it has replaced such rogue applications as Windows Internet Guard, Windows Internet Watchdog, and Windows Antivirus Patrol. As in the case of the aforementioned threats, Windows Antivirus Adviser also seeks to extort money from computer users. Therefore, it tries to convince them that their systems are infected with malware and then offers to help to remove them all. Of course, you will have to upgrade it first. The security experts at spyware-techie.com do not recommend believing any word of this rogue anti-virus. If you want to gain access to your programs and browse the web freely again, you have to delete Windows Antivirus Adviser as soon as possible. Unfortunately, it might be rather difficult to do that because this rogue anti-virus blocks all the browsers and major system utility tools (e.g. Task Manager and Registry editor).
This rogue anti-virus employs several methods in order to make you believe that there are many threats on your system. First of all, it will perform a fake scan and then provide you with a list of infections. According to this fake scanner, your system contains various Trojans, rootkits, and other infections; however, you should know that it is not true. On top of that, Windows Antivirus Adviser will display various warnings, especially when you try to open different kinds of programs. Thus, if you see similar warnings on your screen (see below), there is no doubt that Windows Antivirus Adviser is present on your system:
C:\program files (x86)\mozilla firefox\firefox.exe is suspected to have infected your PC.
This type of virus intercepts entered data and transmits them to a remote server.
Even though such warnings are really scary, we do not recommend buying the license of Windows Antivirus Adviser because it is a completely fake security application. In addition, you will lose $99.95 and even reveal your credit card details (e.g. CVV, name, surname, address, etc.) to cyber criminals. Nobody knows whether they will not use these details for other unlawful purposes.
In order to be able to use your computer again, we advise you to click on the question symbol and enter the following activation key 0W000-000B0-00T00-E0021 . If you do that, you will activate the program and it will not bother you anymore. Of course, it will not disappear from your computer, which is why we recommend that you still scan your PC with a trustworthy malware remover, such as SpyHunter. You should definitely do that because Windows Antivirus Adviser might still act behind your back if you let it stay.
In non-techie terms:
Our security specialists have found out that rogue scanners tend to enter the system when users click on the advertisement offering to check the condition of the system. Therefore, you should definitely ignore ads, especially if you do not know whether the website where they appear are reliable. On top of that, keep your antimalware tool enabled in the future and similar infections will not be able to enter your system.
