    can i use Norton AntiVirus 2011 with antispyware to get rid of Win Antispyware 2011?

  • TD

    I want to know who created this, who is behind this. They must be punished.

    • Ruth Acker

      I agree. The creators are thieves and need to be treated accordingly. Why doesnt the government go after the creators? Everyone loses (both time and money) with these.

  • Micah

    It appears that McAfee antivirus CAN NOT DETECT THIS! So look out!

  • phil from oz

    Try SpybotSD… it finds this one and helps you remove it.

  • phil from oz

    Also, it may not always show as “pw.exe”… in my case it was “trw.exe”.

  • HUYRY

  • hundi
