-- A computer fixes website has discovered an easy way to remove the "Antispyware Soft" virus from your PC for good. The "PersonalComputerFixes.com"
website specializes in creating tutorials to help fix specific computer problems, such as having a PC that won't load properly to fixing constant errors on your system. This website has now discovered, and fully documented, a simple process to completely remove the Antispyware Soft infection.
The Antispyware Soft program might seem legitimate enough, but it's a member of a growing family of fake antivirus programs which install themselves on your computer and then proceed in trying all they can to get you to buy the upgrade of their program. Little do many people know that this application does not do anything to help your computer, and is just designed to annoy you so much that you'll buy the software.
The big problem with this virus is the way it takes over your PC. Once installed (it comes from sources such as Trojan Horse viruses & malicious websites), it can block your Internet connection, prevent certain programs from loading and even capture your personal details to allow the hackers to spend all your money. It's vital that you remove this infection in the most complete way possible, because if you leave even one file or setting of Antispyware Soft on your PC, it will end up coming back & stealing your data.
The way to remove this infection, as can be seen on this site: http://www.personalcomputerfixes.com/spyware/antispyware-...
- is to scan through your system with an anti-spyware program (they recommend MalwareBytes)
and then use a 'registry cleaner' to mop up any of the remaining settings that AntiSpyware Soft left on your PC.
You can try and remove this virus manually, but the unfortunate fact is that even if you manage to remove it by hand, there are still a huge number of settings that it leaves on your PC to hijack your data. To make sure this is not a problem, you can follow the tutorial on this site: http://www.personalcomputerfixes.com/
