AntiMalware. How to Remove? (Uninstall Guide)

removal by - -   Also known as Anti Malware | Type: Rogue Antispyware
AntiMalware is a misleading application that reports false infections/system security threats, displays fake security alerts, uses browser hijacking and other methods to trick you into believing that your computer is infected with Trojans, Worms and other viruses. This misleading application is a clone of the rogue security program called Active Security. So, obviously it has many similarities with Active Security malware. AntiMalware is promoted mostly through the use of Trojans that comes from fake online scanners, fake online video websites or bundled with other malicious software. When running, the rogue program will perform fake system scans and then prompt you to pay for a full version of the program to remove the threats which do not actually exist. This is a scam; do not purchase this bogus application. Instead, uninstall AntiMalware from your computer as soon as possible.

To make things even worse, AntiMalware will block anti-virus software and even try to uninstall some of them. The rogue will attempt to uninstall NOD32 Antivirus, Kaspersky, AVG, BitDefender, avast!, Avira AntiVir, Sophos and other antivirus software. Furthermore, it will constantly display fake security alerts and notifications about supposedly detected harmful programs on your computer, network attacks, keyloggers and very dangerous viruses that may steal private information.

Comments on AntiMalware

I approve of patio doors in Salt Lake City they look great sticking out of the back of a house.
I installed it. I purchased it. It worked fine. Scanned twice in two months and found malware which was confirmed by another malware program. Ran it three more times with no malware found. If they are that disreputable, wouldnt it find at least something to keep you hooked?
My only reason for coming to this forum was to see if I could disable auto startup and change to manual - could not through services. I uninstalled it for one reason only, it was memory intensive. I had NO issues uninstalling so I do not understand all the fuss. Perhaps this author is promoting his own wares? Activeris is still in business, same website everything - a scammer could not have lasted years like this with the same software and upgrades.
II have used malware in my computer for the past 5 or so years and have no problems with it. I have just uninstalled mine and put an other virsion in. So I do not know what all the fuss is over malware,All these problems you seem to be having seems to me that you are running to many anti virus malware and spy ware at the same time and causing conficts,this was explained to me I have had no problems.

Hello I cannot get into the into the internet to download this. Right now I am using my iPod. All this could be useless if I can't get online. What do I do?!?!?!
I got this program on my computer somehow and its HORRIBLE! I've tried all sorts of ways to delete it and its just not working. I even tried going through their "customer service" only to be told that a phone number is only available for "authorized customers".
