Be careful, new virus has been launched into the cyber space recently. This program is indeed very damaging and destructive for the PCs to which it penetrated. It is called Antimalware Tool, and the results of its influence on the compromised computer are really horrifying. Antimalware Tool implies the bogus security device which asserts of itself to be some superb and excellent anti-virus, legitimate and decent one. What a pack of lies indeed!

Please bear in mind that Antimalware Tool is a direct clone of another virus program named Best Malware Protection of which we have published one of our previous posts recently. Antimalware Tool gets inside of the system via trojan that makes an excellent path for the virus to infiltrate. Why does this happen? Well, it could be because user is surfing some unsafe sites or due to some possibly available leaks in the system security. Whatever the case might be, is very pushy in finding the ways of interference inside of the potential victim PCs.
Upon successful infiltration and installation Antimalware Tool would imitate computer scans (which are all fake) and would show plenty of fake warning messages that claim your computer is vulnerable to threats due to weak security provisions initiated by you. It also really annoys users by showing on their desktops very many fake security notifications and forcing them to obtain its so-called registered version.

To summarize the aforesaid, Antimalware Tool stands for the scam application and hence it should not be tolerated. Do not ever purchase it, no matter how persuasive it might sound or seem to be. Antimalware Tool is not worth paying money for due to the fact that you only get even more viruses for your system and no computer protection at all. Antimalware Tool also is known to redirect your web browser to some fake and contaminated web pages that sell and promote the rogue. Keep out from buying anything it offers you. Make sure and get aid from the decent anti-virus program and delete Antimalware Tool as soon as you can. We recommend GridinSoft Trojan Killer for this goal.
