MS Removal Tool's Interface

Trojans bundled in corrupt video codecs silently install rogue anti-spyware programs like MS Removal Tool. Caution is advised when downloading suspicious files from the Web.

(PRWEB) March 30, 2011

EnigmaSoftware.com has released a new removal and informational report on the emergence of the rogue anti-spyware program called MS Removal Tool.

MS Removal Tool is a rogue anti-spyware application which uses the same graphical user interface and tactics as its predecessor System Tool – another popular scamware program. MS Removal Tool is also similar to other well-known rogue anti-spyware programs, including AntiMalware GO, Windows Power Expansion, System Tool 2011, and many others. MS Removal Tool uses self-protection techniques such as block the usage of Windows utilities (Task Manager, Registry Editor, Command prompt, etc.) which can be used to remove this bogus program.

Typically, MS Removal Tool may use Trojans to infiltrate computers. Often these Trojans install on a computer by pretending to be video codec installations required to view online videos. Another technique used by rogue anti-spyware programs is to use browser hijackers to change computer users' homepage and redirect them to fake online scanner webpages with links to download a fake anti-spyware installer.

Once MS Removal Tool has made its way into a computer, it will issue an array of fictitious warning messages and scan reports that claim the computer is infected with spyware. MS Removal Tool was designed to look and feel like a real anti-spyware program, but, in reality, it is not able to scan, detect and remove known online threats. MS Removal Tool is just a ploy to get PC users to make a hasty decision and purchase a fraudulent program. To purchase MS Removal Tool is to relinquish credit card information to cybercrooks instead of getting a functional anti-spyware application. If you did fall for MS Removal Tool's scare tactics and purchased it, read this MS Removal Tool removal guide or contact your credit card provider and dispute the charges.

MS Removal Tool uses aggressive techniques to foil computer users. These techniques include the display of multiple pop-up alert messages. These messages include deceiving statements such as listed below:

"MS Removal Tool Warning
Intercepting programs that may compromise your private and harm your system have been detected on your PC. Click here to remove them immediately with MS Removal Tool."

"MS Removal Tool Warning
Your PC is infected with dangerous viruses. Activate antivirus protection to prevent data loss and avoid the theft of your credit card details. Click here to activate protection."

"MS Removal Tool
Some critical system files of your computer were modified by malicious program. It may cause system instability and data loss."

Beware of rogue anti-spyware programs that creep into your computer without your knowledge and protect your computer from falling victim to an Internet scam. Details on MS Removal Tool and how to detect it automatically can be found in EnigmaSoftware.com's MS Removal report: http://www.enigmasoftware.com/msremovaltool-removal/.
