How to Remove the Fake Anti-spyware Programs from A Computer?

Hey, there? I have a program called SpySheriff. I don’t remember I ever installed it. It always reports that there are potential risks on my computer. And I fail to visit some websites, I am told those websites are not safe. Is it right? The application looks like an antivirus program. But I search for information about it, and learn that it is a fake anti-spyware program. It can’t kill the risks detected by itself and ask me to buy a registered version. Should I buy the program? Or it is just a scam? Help, please!

More Details about the Fake Anti-spyware Programs:

A fake anti-spyware program is a malicious program that can infect various versions of Windows operating system such as Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows xp and so on. Different computer users may get infected with different fake anti-spyware programs of different names like SpywareSheriff and SpyTrooper. While no matter what the names are, they are the same fraudulent and useless anti-spyware applications. When talking about anti-spyware programs, such similar programs as Brave Sentry, Pest Trap, SpyTrooper, Spywareno and MalwareAlarm are usually referred to display the way they work and how computer users are persuaded into falling into the traps. The tactics used by the the fake anti-spyware programs to scam is simple but sneaky. After infection, the fake anti-spyware programs will give fake or misleading reports about potential risks on the user’s computer. And the user will be informed that a registered version of the softwares is able to remove the risks and he should pay to get a registered software. For this kind of scam, some people are able to identify that it is a trick to steal money, but for some computer users who know little about computers and the fake anti-spyware programs, it is difficult for them to tell whether the reports are true or not, so they can be easily fooled into paying money to buy those softwares to wipe out the imaginary risks on the computer. This happens more frequently when the users get nervous about the trick. But what is most upsetting is that the problem is not solved even you have payed to purchase the softwares as what they say.

Hi I was watching a TV show online last night and all of a sudden I started getting pop ups for this Defender Pro 2015 firewall alert saying that my computer was at risk.

I know it is a fake scanner but I cannot run my real antivirus program or even open my internet browser to search a solution. I am using my phone right now.

Antivirus PRO 2015 Virus Removal

Hi there. I’m getting really frustrated now. I have got Antivirus PRO 2015 virus on my computer that keeps telling me that my computer is being attacked. This little bugger looks just like a legitimate antivirus but I know it is fake because it prevents the use of taskbar, IE, or any virus scans. I’ve tried both Norton and Malewarbytes from safe mode, but neither of them got rid of the darn thing! They didn’t even detect it. Also I cannot find it from control panel. I have no idea what to do. It makes me so mad. How do I get rid of it completely?

Antivirus PRO 2015 Description:

Antivirus PRO 2015 is nothing but a bogus anti-spyware program that displays fake alerts, blocks your Task Manager or other applications, and finally lures you into taking part in fraudulent transactions.

Usually this rogue program is promoted via spam e-mails, malicious or hacked Web pages, peer-to-peer networks. That is to say, it can be downloaded when a user opened an unknown email, downloaded a malicious program or even visited pornographic website. Once installed, it creates a certain registry entry so that it could run every time you start your machine. You will be forced to run a bogus scan automatically that keeps reporting your computer is seriously infected and a registered version is needed if you want to clean up your PC. Of course the registered version is not for free. You have to pay a large amount of money to get it. But it is unnecessary to do that because Antivirus PRO 2015 is a scam and its final goal is to trick gullible computers users into thinking their PCs are infected with various malware infections and then pay for its product. Therefore, the hackers can rip off user’s hard-earned money easily by using this scare tactic.
