If your computer is inexplicably slow, and your internet connection has suddenly become intermittent, you may have a Virus. If you have just loaded Antispyware Soft on to your computer, it is the likely culprit. The program isn’t what it says it is, in fact, it is actually dangerous malware.
You can try to remove Antispyware Soft through conventional means, it won’t do any good though. Because it poses as a legitimate application, you will actually have the option to uninstall Antispyware Soft. However, all that will do is erase the GUI and any pretense. The actual malicious code will remain.
The frightening reality is that there are hundreds of viruses out there disguised as security applications, and chances are, more will follow. Such malware can cause real harm, which is why although Antispyware Soft removal can be tough, it needs to be done as soon as you learn of infection. To let it remain is to allow it to steal your personal information so that it can be sold and circulated on the Internet, bogging down your system as it goes.
To prevent yourself from the trouble it will take to delete Antispyware Soft, you should try to avoid getting infected. Don’t browse websites you aren’t too familiar with, many obscure websites are set up as traps in which your browser can be hijacked. Don’t use P2P software, for one, many of the files you download there are illegal, and using such software leaves you open to infection from hundreds of possibly unprotected systems. Don’t download any freeware or shareware that you don’t know anything about.
If you are already infected though, you can try to remove Antispyware Soft manually, although it should be said that only advanced users should attempt this:
• Remove any and all virus associated files with the.EXE,.BAT,.DLL, and.LNK extensions
• Execute the regedit command, delete entries made by the virus in the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE and HKEY_CURRENT_USER folders
It is not without risk though, if you don’t know what you are doing, you could end up crashing your PC. The best method is simply to use legitimate virus utility. It is faster, safer far less complicated, and it will get rid of Antispyware Soft totally, and protect you against future attacks.
