It is of utmost importance for us to tell you about Windows Antivirus System malware. Yes, malware is just the right word which is suitable for it. At present time there are very many people who are using the world wide web to reach their malicious plots. This is why they develop programs like Windows Antivirus System – thinking that people would be purchasing them after such programs scare users with their fake reports. The fact, however, is that all such programs are totally incapable of helping users to make their computers cleaner or able to resist the malware and virus attacks. Windows Antivirus System is the typical example of such malicious tool.
It is not a coincidence that Windows Antivirus System is the successor of many other similar fake system optimizers, such as Windows AV Component, Windows Proofness Guarantor and many other rogues which have the same intention – that is to trick users, to fool them and to scare them with the horrible reports about all kinds of problems detected inside of the computers. Keep in mind that Windows Antivirus System virus is spread via Trojans and installed in the form of fake Microsoft Security Essential Alerts. As soon as the user obeys the instructions of this fake alert this is when Windows Antivirus System would appear in front of the machine. It is a must-do thing for user to understand that what he/she sees is the virus and not the decent application.
As soon as Windows Antivirus System is successfully installed it would immediately start to run its fake system scan. The fact is that none of the information presented in the reports following after such scan is a true one. At the same time, some users are being deceived, fooled and tricked, thinking that these reports about problems, errors and all kinds of viruses are real. But the truth of the matter is that Windows Antivirus System is most probably the only virus infection and the only problems available on your computer.

%SysDrive%Documents and Settings[Current User]Application Data\Microsoft for Windows XP
