    Removal of Sysinternals antivirus fake program (virus)

    Sysinternals Antivirus Manual Removal instructions

    Sysinternals Antivirus is a rogue anti-spyware application that has
    been directly related to Your PC Protector. Just like the program it
    is related to, it tries to trick users into paying for a software
    license. This rogue application gets installed via Trojans that force
    their way on to the user system through malicious websites. Once
    installed, Sysinternals Antivirus loads itself as a startup service
    and proceeds to perform endless scans of the user’s system, handing
    out fake reports which try to convince the user that the computer is
    dangerously infected with a number of malware applications.
    Sysinternals Antivirus also displays a large number of fake warning
    pop-ups from the Windows taskbar in an attempt to scare users. The aim
    of all this activity is to push the user into purchasing a license for
    the so-called ‘full’ version of Sysinternals Antivirus by claiming
    that the currently installed ‘trial’ version is incapable of cleaning
    out all the detected ‘threats’. However, it should be kept in mind at
    all times that Sysinternals Antivirus is simply a fake application
    that cannot scan or clean your computer under any circumstances.

    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.
