removal by Jake Doevan - -   Also known as Vista Anti-virus 2013 | Type: Rogue Antispyware

Vista Antivirus 2013 (also called as Vista Anti-virus 2013) is a nasty piece of malware, which seems to belong to the huge family of rogues, which is called Braviax. Being one of the members, this threat is reported to have identical looks. Besides, it uses the same malicious techniques for swindling the money from PC users. For that, Vista Anti-virus 2013 displays misleading alerts that pretend to be from the 'Action center' and offer to purchase licensed its version. Before you pay for it, be sure that you have a deal with a dangerous rogue anti-spyware that seeks only to rip you off. As we have mentioned, it uses the same GUI just like Vista Defender 2013, so check how this virus looks like and avoid similarly-looking parasites. You must remove Vista Anti-virus 2013 as soon as possible.


Vista Antivirus 2013 scamware is extected to use the same malicious ways as its predecessors – it will rely on trojan viruses that can easily come inside the PC without any permission asked. Once it enters the system, it then starts mimicking PC security activity and tries to make it look like it’s actually doing something useful, like scanning computer for viruses and detecting them. However, any alert and scanner generated by Vista Antivirus 2013 is misleading and contains only forged information. Vista Antivirus 2013 displays such or similar notifications:

Malware intrusion!
Sensitive areas of your system ware found to be under attack. Spy software attack or virus infection possible. Prevent further damage or your private data will get stolen. Run an anti-spyware scan now. Click here to start.

Privacy threat!
Spyware intrusion detected. Your system is infected. System integrity is at risk. Private data can be stolen by third parties, including credit card details and passwords. Click here to perform a security repair.

After claiming that there are a great variety of malware threats detected, it then offers to make you hand over the payment and purchase the full version of this program. However, paying for this threat is the same as giving your money away and you must remove Vista Antivirus 2013 without any delay.

    I see no need for a I see no need for a extra retail AV suite now. I alywas used to rec AV like mcaffe and norton and others to friends. And they constantly complained about resource usage and subscriptions and tedious interfaces. But MSE, they absolutely love it and ACTUALLY RECOMMEND it to their buddies. The low resource usage **AND** a clear & concise user interface is a real hoot to boot! Trouble free ease of use is paramount when venturing into the world of mal-ware. Mcaffe/Norton were just huge juggernauts.
