Anti-Virus Golden Spyware

Just by the sound of it, AntiVirusGolden may appear to be your savior against spywares and other malware. Well, think again and the answer experts come up with is “No”. This is for the simple reason that AntiVirusGolden is nothing but a rogue anti spyware program. Although it promises to remove any existing spywares from your computer, the fact that it uses tricks for the process of installation makes it a very annoying and deceptive anti spyware program. Apart from manual installations, AntiVirusGolden can also be installed automatically through malware such as TrojanZlob.

What Is AntiVirusGolden

AntiVirusGolden is known to display pop ups, stating that the user’s computer is in danger or is infected by a spyware that needs immediate action. In some cases, this program is also known to change the wallpaper on the desktop to some kind of a phony warning cautioning the user of a spyware threat.

It also takes control over the web browser in such a way that when the user clicks on any pop ups, instead of directing him to the proper destination, it directs him to a website that he never desired to see in the first place. Most of these problems are encountered when the user opts for the trial offer of the AntiVirusGolden.

How Does AntiVirusGolden Work

The main objective of the program is either to entice a user for buying the product or evoking enough fear in him under false pretences that he buy the full version of the spyware by way of displaying annoying and false warning messages. www.antivirusgolden.com was registered through www.estdomains.com which included other forms of rogue anti spywares like SpyAxe and SpywareStrike that promised removal of spywares but did nothing in that respect.

In case your computer has the trial version of AntiVirusGolden, you will probably get warning messages like “Your computer has been infected with the latest version of spyware-XYZ.” In order to protect your system, you are asked to download/install the latest version of AntiVirusGolden. The risk level declared by the message may be anywhere from medium to high risk which further entices the user to download the product as soon as possible.

The Infection

One of the most common ways to be tainted by these spyware removal programs is by way of installing an infected codec program in the form of any corrupted video downloads. In some cases, even Smitfraud is responsible for the installation of programs like SpyAxe and AntiVirusGolden. The fake messages displayed also includes the various “symptoms” that the user’s computer is bound to suffer in case the program is not installed.
