According to Rillara News, which published its news report on December 27, 2010, the software repair site OnlineComputerFixes.com states that Win 7 AntiSpyware 2010 is one freshly unleashed rogue anti-virus that's continuously troubling innumerable PCs by loading itself onto them all over the globe daily.

Elaborate the security researchers that scammers have created Win 7 AntiSpyware 2010 to so deceive end-users that they agree to buy the fake application unwittingly and thereby become infected. Actually, when the rogue application is installed, it frightens users via displaying bogus virus and spyware warnings as also pops up windows cautioning them that malware has infected their computers.

Meanwhile, since plenty of blogs and websites are apparently disseminating the fake AntiSpyware to their visitors, it can be downloaded online without difficulty. What's more, it imitates user interfaces that support popular anti-malware and anti-virus software; as a result it's extremely hard to know whether or not the software is an authentic and safe program.

Additionally, according to the security researchers, it is advisable that end-users straight away remove this virus in case they find it on their computers. However, there is a particular method with which the removal is possible. But, for that users must first wholly comprehend the nature of the infection.

Sadly, different AV software hasn't been able to adequately eliminate it as the virus disables all of the anti-viruses' functionalities.

Ultimately, in order that Win 7 AntiSpyware 2010 can be got rid of from a PC, users must first disable the malware virus and prevent it from running. Thereafter, they need to reboot their computers into "Safe Mode" and this is very important. Alternatively, they must utilize any authorized "malware removal program" that are really professional programs that run malware scans on computers and eliminate the associated infections, which may be present on the systems. These two methods are the most successful techniques possible for eliminating the threat.
