Remove AntiMalware. Description and removal instructions

Title: AntiMalware Also known as: Anti Malware
Type: Spyware
Severity scale:  (72 / 100)
AntiMalware is a misleading application that reports false infections/system security threats, displays fake security alerts, uses browser hijacking and other methods to trick you into believing that your computer is infected with Trojans, Worms and other viruses. This misleading application is a clone of the rogue security program called Active Security. So, obviously it has many similarities with Active Security malware. AntiMalware is promoted mostly through the use of Trojans that comes from fake online scanners, fake online video websites or bundled with other malicious software. When running, the rogue program will perform fake system scans and then prompt you to pay for a full version of the program to remove the threats which do not actually exist. This is a scam; do not purchase this bogus application. Instead, uninstall AntiMalware from your computer as soon as possible.

Once installed, AntiMalware rogue will be configured to start automatically each time you log on into Windows. The rogue program will display numerous infections and security threats but won’t let you remove them unless you first purchase the program. The reported infections are fake, but use real names. The list of reported infections:

Rootkit.Win32.Agent.pp Trojan.Win32.Agent.dcc
Trojan-Clicker.HTML.IFrame.g Virus.Win32.Hala.a Trojan-Dropper.Win32.Small.go

To make things even worse, AntiMalware will block anti-virus software and even try to uninstall some of them. The rogue will attempt to uninstall NOD32 Antivirus, Kaspersky, AVG, BitDefender, avast!, Avira AntiVir, Sophos and other antivirus software. Furthermore, it will constantly display fake security alerts and notifications about supposedly detected harmful programs on your computer, network attacks, keyloggers and very dangerous viruses that may steal private information.
