removal by - -   Also known as WindowsAnti-MalwarePatch | Type: Malware

Windows Anti-Malware Patch is a rogue anti-spyware that should be taken as a serious threat designed to swindle the money from its victims. For that, it reports about nonexistent viruses and then offers to purchase its fake licensed version. Just like many other threats that belong to FakeVimes group of malwares, this FakeVimes member is also designed to start its activity as soon as user reboots his computer. Be sure that Windows Anti-Malware Patch means annoying activity and nothing more. It has been released by scammers and must be removed from the system as soon as possible. We don't recommend manual Windows Anti-Malware Patch removal because it may hide under legitimate files and you may remove them accidentally. That's why we suggest to use automated removal tools, such as Reimage and others.

HOW CAN I GET INFECTED WITH Windows Anti-Malware Patch?

Most of the users infected with Windows Anti-Malware Patch claim that this program manages to get inside computer without any sign. That's true. Windows Anti-Malware Patch is usually distributed with a help of trojans that come together with fake updates, video codecs, freeware, shareware and other infected files. Of course, you can prevent its infiltration by installing reputable anti-virus and anti-spyware versions and always keeping them up-to-date. If Windows Anti-Malware Patch manages to get inside the system, it starts working on misleading its victims - it displays forged alerts and fake system scanners that all 'report' about dangerous virus activity found inside the PC. However, there should be no discussussion about the threats detected by Windows Anti-Malware Patch because most of them are legitimate system files that are important for normal PC's functionality. You must ignore such or similar notifications:

Warning! Virus Detected

is suspected to have infected your PC. This type of virus intercepts entered data and transmits them to a remote server.

As you can clearly see, Windows Anti-Malware Patch is a scam product that is created by scammers to swindle some money for them. Instead of falling for its alerts and system scanners, you should simply eliminate Windows Anti-Malware Patch from your PC. Otherwise, you will be annoyed to death by its malicious routine. Besides, it may download more malware on your computer ans also make it slow and simply unusable.
