AntiMalware. How to remove? (Uninstall guide)

removal by Julie Splinters - -   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.

Once installed, AntiMalware rogue will be configured to start automatically each time you log on into Windows. The rogue program will display numerous infections and security threats but won’t let you remove them unless you first purchase the program. The reported infections are fake, but use real names. The list of reported infections:

Rootkit.Win32.Agent.pp Trojan.Win32.Agent.dcc
Trojan-Clicker.HTML.IFrame.g Virus.Win32.Hala.a
Trojan-Downloader.JS.Multi.ca Trojan-Dropper.Win32.Small.go
Trojan-Clicker.Win32.Tiny.a Email-Worm.Win32.NetSky.q
Backdoor.Win32.Kbot.al Trojan-Spy.Win32.Iespy.od
Trojan-PSW.Win32.Hangame.cp Trojan-Clicker.Win32.Agent.bm

Trojan-Downloader.Win32.Agent.alr Trojan-Downloader.NSIS.Agent.a
Trojan-Dropper.Win32.VB.or Net-Worm.Win32.DipNet.d

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.

    – antimalware.exe and uninstall.exe may not appear in the process list. Then you have to kill *32.exe process.
    – amext.dll may be locked for deletion. In this case rename it and move it to desktop. After the next reboot, delete it.
    – 4otjesjty.mof c.dat creg.dat may not be found on the system.

    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.

  • Marc

    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.
