Win 8 Antispyware 2014 is a special type of malware classified as a rogue security program. Such fake antiviruses belong to the Braviax rogue family, also referred to as Multirogue 2014. This program is known as a name-changing rogue antispyware. The same executable file of this fake anti-virus program may give different names for the rogue depending on the type of the targeted operating system. Obviously, Win 8 Antispyware 2014 may only attack Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 operating systems.
Following this guide below will help you to get rid of Win 8 Antispyware 2014 virus from your infected PC. Note that this malicious application is actively spread in the world wide web through malicious links, spam emails, compromised accounts in social networks like Facebook, Twitter, and by means of other methods. Very often the attack of this rogue occurs in PCs not duly protected by decent anti-spyware programs. On the other hand, we all know that in the world wide web today there’s no absolute 100% protection against malware and viruses, so sometimes even the world’s most reputable anti-virus applications fail to identify the attack of Win 8 Antispyware 2014 rogue ahead of time, and this is how they allow its intrusion into your system.
Actually, this hoax gets into PCs without user’s obvious participation. No doubt, when you see this rogue inside, you will have no clue at all how in the world you could get this scareware installed into your PCs. Well, there’s nothing surprising in this fact. This rogue AV is installed absolutely illegally, without providing users with a legitimate uninstaller for it. In other words, you will not see this rogue in the list of installed applications when you go to the Control Panel of your PC and check the list of legally installed software.
Once the attack of Win 8 Antispyware 2014 is successfully accomplished, you will see that this fake antivirus will be self-started together with Windows. So, as soon as you turn your PC on, you will see this fake antivirus up and running on your PC. It first starts imitating the cleanup of your PC. Being a fake antispyware, it runs a bogus system scan of your computer and soon reports the huge variety of threats, malware and infections supposedly detected by it in your computer. This is done to scare you into buying the so-called full or registered version of this malicious application.
You must not trust any fake information presented by Win 8 Antispyware 2014 rogue. Again, its mission is to scare you into purchasing it, without actually rendering any decent security or protection services for your PC.
