Get Rid Of AntiSpyCheck 

Reports of rogue antispyware programs are increasingly common these days, and one of the newest programs is AntiSpyCheck, an application that may lead you to believe you have more serious threats on your computer than you actually do.

Understanding AntiSpyCheck

Claiming to block spyware, popup advertisements, and spam, AntiSpyCheck runs in the background of your computer's processes on a constant basis. It has the ability to connect itself to the internet without your knowledge or permission, and it can display advertisements both when you are connected to the internet and when you are offline. Related to the rogue antispyware program SpyBurner, the goal is to get you to purchase the full version of the program by suggesting it is the best way to protect yourself while you're online.

AntiSpyCheck is essentially rogue antispyware. These kinds of programs try to suggest that your machine is infected with serious viruses or spyware programs so that you will download the full version of their program to clean your machine. Unfortunately, not only may your machine be free of the suggested viruses and spyware, but downloading the rogue antispyware program in its full form may not solve all of the problems it claims to.

How AntiSpyCheck Appears on Your Computer

Unlike some rogue antispyware programs, there is only one way AntiSpyCheck may appear on your machine - through manual download. In most cases, you unintentionally installed the program while you were downloading a different, unrelated freeware or shareware program. It seems to be most commonly associated with a video codec.

Not only is the way AntiSpyCheck installs on your computer a bit unique among the world of rogue antispyware programs, but it also seems to have a one to three month period of dormancy after it appears on your machine. During that time, you will not see pop up ads, inaccurate scan results, or any behavior to indicate that it exists.

Signs You May Notice if AntiSpyCheck is Installed on your Computer

If you have AntiSpyCheck, one of the most common things you'll notice is the presence of exaggerated security scans. In most cases, a very official looking box will appear on your screen. It will identify itself as AntiSpyCheck, and it will display a list of hundreds of infectious files on the screen. The file names sound daunting. From there, you will be prompted to purchase the full version of the program with a suggestion that you are running an unregistered version of the program. The notification suggests that if you wish to remove the harmful files, the full version of the program must be purchased.

In addition to the scan results, you may also notice an overall slowing of your computer's performance. Because a program like AntiSpyCheck runs quietly in the background from the time the computer starts, it eats valuable system resources you may need for everything from your word processing program to your internet browser.

Removing AntiSpyCheck

There are three ways to remove AntiSpyCheck from your computer. The first way is to access your computer's Add/Remove Programs function from the control panel. If there is an entry for AntiSpyCheck, click remove. Keep in mind, though, that in most cases, this will not remove the entire program from your computer, and it may reinstall itself the next time you start your machine.

Another way to remove AntiSpyCheck from your computer is to install a respected antispyware program. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (Malwarebytes has free malware removal) is a good choice for removing AntiSpyCheck. Talk with friends, family members, or coworkers about what antispyware solutions they use, and don't forget to talk with others on message boards and forums to figure out which might be the right solution for you. Be sure to research any suggestions you get carefully. Be sure to read program reviews before you make your final selection. Once you have decided, download, install, and update the program. Then scan your computer. It will automatically remove AntiSpyCheck and any programs like it from your machine. Be sure to schedule an automatic scan at least once per week to prevent rogue programs like this one from appearing on your machine again.

The final way to remove AntiSpyCheck from your computer is to manually remove it. This will involve not only deleting associated files and folders, but also editing your computer's registry. The registry is like the brain of your computer, and any edits should be handled with care. If you're a registry editing novice, this isn't the best solution for you, as a mistake during the process could cause far more damage than AntiSpyCheck ever could. Use the help of a professional during any registry edit. A list of files and registry keys associated with the program appears after this article. Use it to guide the manual removal process.

Rogue AntiSpyware Prevention

AntiSpyCheck is not alone in the world of rogue antispyware programs, and there are several things you can do to avoid getting this program and those like it. First, update your Windows operating system as often as updates are available. Microsoft is aware of many of the problematic rogue antispyware programs out there, and they frequently create patches to ensure they don't appear on your system. Second, be sure your web browser is updated on a regular basis. Some web browsers, like Internet Explorer and Firefox, can be set to receive manual updates. This will help to close up any security loopholes that would allow programs like AntiSpyCheck to appear on your machine. Third, be sure you have reputable antispyware and antivirus solutions in place. Update them regularly, and scan your computer at least once a week. Finally, make sure your firewall is running. This will keep programs like AntiSpyCheck from appearing in the first place.

AntiSpyCheck is not a serious threat to your computer, but it does create potential security risks in your system, and it can be both annoying and frightening. The program may sound like it's trying to help you, but the system resources it eats and the security holes it creates simply aren't worth it. Removing AntiSpycheck should be a priority.
