Antimalware Tool. How to remove? (Uninstall guide)

Antimalware Tool is a rogue anti-spyware application that displays fake security alerts and reports false system threats as a method to make you think you are infected with viruses. It’s from the same family as Internet Defender. The rogue pretends to scan your computer for various malicious software and reports numerous infections. It then prompts to pay for a full version of the program to remove the infections and to protect your computer. Actually, it just tries to scam you out of your money. It detects non-existent files as malware but does not allow you to remove them until you purchase the full version of the program. If you have paid for the this program already then I suggest you to contact your credit card company and dispute the charges. To remove Antimalware Tool from your computer, please use the removal instructions below.

While Antimalware Tool is running you will also see many fake security alerts and warnings on your computer. These warnings will state that your computer is infected or that someone is trying to hack your computer and then suggest you purchase Internet Defender to protect yourself. Some of the fake alerts:

Internet Defender has detected malicious software that may cause crash of your computer. Click Remove All button to remove them now.

These alerts, like the fake infections, are just another attempt of the program to try and convince you that you are infected. If you are infected with Antimalware Tool, please do not purchase it. Instead use the removal guide below to remove Antimalware Tool and related malware manually for free or using our automatic removal tool given below. Please note that this rogue application might come bundled with rootkis and other viruses so even if you choose to remove the rogue application manually, you should additionally scan the system with STOPzilla.
