    Fake Antispyware Soft virus

    Antispyware Soft reality:
    is a rogue anti-spyware program from the same family as Antivirus Soft
    and Antivirus Suite. Just like its predecessors, AntispywareSoft
    reports false system security threats to make you think that your
    computer is infected with malicious software. Usually, this fake
    program is promoted through the use of Trojans or other malware, but
    it can be also installed on your computer without your consent and
    knowledge through software vulnerabilities.
    For more technical information about Antispyware Soft and to learn how
    to remove it from an infected computer, checkout this tutorial

    Removal tools (or instructions for manual removal) are no solution to an
    infection, particularly not with malware that may download more malware
    or may give an attacker remote access. One can never be sure what else
    was modified on the system and thus can never be certain that the
    malware was removed entirely.
