WinAntiSpyware 2005

by Alice Woods - - | Type: Corrupt Anti-Spyware

WinAntiSpyware 2005 uses false positives. It was tested on absolutely clean uninfected computer. Complete system scan was performed. The application managed to find 6 harmful registry keys and 4 malicious files associated with BearShear and Transponder adware parasites and Mouse and Key Recorder keylogger. Analysis showed that all detected objects were related to legitimate software and Windows operating system and therefore could not pose any threat. For instance, registry entry HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ed2k and its subkeys belong to harmless file sharing program eMule and not BearShare, which was never installed to our test system. The hh.exe executable recognized as a part of keylogger actually is an essential component of Windows Help service. The activation.jar archive is related to installed Oracle 9.2.0.1 database software and definitely have nothing in common with the Transponder adware. See screenshot below.

Free unregistered version refuses to remove any critical objects it finds and asks to register and purchase full product.

WinAntiSpyware 2005 is promoted through various deceptive and aggressive advertisements, some of them are opened even by the official web site. Another screenshot provided below is a typical example of a deceptive advertisement containing fake system scan results.

We have been informed that some variants of the Vundo trojan and similar parasites often serve unsolicited advertisements promoting WinAntiSpyware 2005. Although we are not sure who actually is responsible for these issues, we surmise that the application’s vendor or its affiliates are trying to advertise and sell the product that way.

Domains associated with WinAntiSpyware 2005 are winantispyware.com, winsoftware.com and softwareprofit.com.

We DO NOT recommend purchasing or using this product.
