Latest malware behavior comparison

This article is meant to summarize the most widely spread malwares (rogue security programs) of the year 2011 and to compare their behavior/malware techniques on the infected computers. The majority of viruses tend to block launching of executables, including Task Manager and anti-virus programs already installed onto user’s machine. Some of them even do not allow users to download anti-virus tools which would help remove these fake security programs. Basically all the rogues tend to annoy users by plenty of fake security alerts, notifications and warnings in order to scare them into purchasing the virus eventually. Browser/Google redirect is another problem which can be caused by these malwares. Few of these programs are ‘famous” for hiding files and folders, icons and programs in the Start menu. So, what are these most severe rogues of the year 2011 and how can they be removed? What do these malwares perform once they get inside of your PC? What are the remedies to eliminate the negative consequences of the malware aggression of these bogus applications? Please find the answers to all these questions in the summary table below.
