What is Win 8 Antispyware 2014?

Win 8 Antispyware 2014 is another rogue anti-spyware, which belongs to the well known Braviax family. It is a dangerous virus created by hackers in order to deceive people and swindle their money. Starting with the first glimpse, this program might seem as a regular security tool. After successful infiltration this rogue initiates full system scan and comes up with the long list of various infections. Usually, this list includes various files and programs from your computer, which are said to be infected or damaged. Beware that these files are invented or randomly taken from your computer system, so we strongly recommend you neither delete those files by yourself, nor employ Win 8 Antispyware 2014 to do so. Otherwise, you may damage your computer by deleting legitimate programs. In addition, you may believe that this fake anti-spyware is a reliable security tool and try to remove its reported infections with its help. If you try this, Win 8 Antispyware 2014 will offer you to buy its licensed version. Do not believe this and NEVER pay for this license because it's fake. This program is neither able to detect nor to delete viruses from the system because it does not have such function, to say the least. Paying for such and similar fake programs will only lead you to the money loss. Therefore, if you have detected this rogue in your system, react immediately and eliminate it from your computer without any delay.

How can Win 8 Antispyware 2014 infect my computer?

Since Win 8 Antispyware 2014 is a fake program, which seeks to deceive people, you should not expect that it gets inside computers after asking people's permission. Usually it sneaks into computers thru security vulnerabilities. Typically this rogue gets infiltrated into PC when user gets tricked into downloading fake update, infected email's attachment or fake 'security scanner'. While browsing, you may notice pop-up notification, which states that your computer is infected and that you should scan it with a free scanner. Do not trust such notifications and keep in mind that there aren't such thing as online security scanner at all. In addition, you may get fake messages stating that you received some kind of important information or that you won in a lottery, thus provoking you to download an attachment. If you do so, you can easily end-up with installation of trojan horse, which spreads Win 8 Antispyware 2014. Once installed, this dangerous virus drops its registry entries and modifies your PC's system in order to start showing you its fake alerts. If it has already started showing you its ads, do NOT trust them.
