Antispyware Soft is a rogue anti-spyware program from the same family as Antivirus Soft and Antivirus Suite. Just like its predecessors, AntispywareSoft reports false system security threats to make you think that your computer is infected with malicious software. Usually, this fake program is promoted through the use of Trojans or other malware, but it can be also installed on your computer without your consent and knowledge through software vulnerabilities.

Once active, Antispyware Soft runs fake system scan and displays a list of false or non-existing threats to scare you into thinking that your computer is badly infected. Antispyware Soft Demo is a typical scareware, so it won't let you to remove the infections until you purchase the program.
