Win 7 Antispyware 2012

What is Win 7 Antispyware 2012?

All rogue antivirus programs have the same objective, which is to sell computer users software that proves to be useless.  They typically behave in similar ways and use the same techniques.  The 2012 Name Changing Rogue, however, has 15 variants that are identical in every respect except the name.  This changes based on the version of Windows that is installed on a computer.  Win 7 Antispyware 2012 is one of these incarnations, sharing the exact same interface, pop-ups, and false warnings as its 14 other brothers.

Win 7 Antispyware 2012 is spread by trojans, particularly those associated with advertisements.  A user may, for instance, click on an ad and inadvertently allow a trojan to enter their system.  Sites with adult, gaming, free, P2P, social media, and trending content are vulnerable, as are sites with free videos.  Once the trojan has accessed the system, it deposits malware, including rogue antivirus programs.  The rogue applications then use their various scare tactics to convince users to purchase their “protection,” which ultimately proves fruitless, and expensive.

You will know that a rogue antivirus program is downloaded in your system when you begin seeing pop-ups like the following:

System danger!
Your system security is in danger. Privacy threats detected.  Spyware, keyloggers or trojans may be working the background right now. Perform an in-depth scan and removal now, click here.

You will also see pop-ups disguised as security scans.  These indicate that there are several infections in your computer, and they urge you to remove them immediately with Win 7 Antispyware 2012.  Both the security warnings and scans are nothing more than ads.  There is likely only one problem with your computer: the rogue itself.

One of the techniques that the 2012 Name Changing Rogue uses is to block legitimate applications.  When you launch your browser, for instance, the rogue application will issue a “warning” that the program is infected.  Again, you are urged to purchase the “full version” to protect your computer.  The rogue can also prevent you from accessing sites that contain security or removal help. 

Because it impairs browsing and performance, and can leave your computer vulnerable to other forms of malware, steps should be taken immediately to remove Win 7 Antispyware 2012.
