Contraviro is a bogus anti-spyware program that uses false security alerts and scan results in order to convince you that your computer is seriously infected with spyware, adware and Trojans. Presumptively, the rogue was created by the same group of people who have released Unvirex – also rogue spyware remover.

Of course, Contraviro can be downloaded and installed manually from its website, but this is less common situation.

Once installed, this parasite will supposedly scan your computer and display a list of files that are likely infected and must be removed. These files, though, are legitimate programs and shouldn’t be removed, otherwise it would cause Windows to not operate properly.
