Hi, a few days ago I installed a new security tool called Spyware Clear for free on my computer, and recently I always see several security warning showing up every 30 minutes, and I fell very annoying, because every time when the warning shows, I also click to choose to remove those threats, but it still reports that the threats are there. Does this Spyware Clear help to safeguard my computer or not? I am very confused. Can you guys help me to scan my whole computer and remove those threats completely?
Brief Introduction to Spyware Clear
Well, many victims may think that Spyware Clear is a useful kind of antivirus program, but actually it is a fake antivirus which cannot protect your computer at all but instead performs harmful actions on your PC. When this fake antivirus is installed on your computer, it will change the startup items in system and insert its files in it. And when you power on your computer, Spyware Clear will quickly activate and automatically launch to make a full scan for your computer, which looks like it is a well-working program, and then later when it finishes scanning, it will tell you that your computer is under high risks and also shows those malicious files’ detail route. Thus you may be scared and worried about your computer because of seeing so many threats invading the PC. Next it will advise you to remove them immediately. However, when you click on option “Remove”, it will ask you to activate it or suggest you buy the full version of it to remove those risks completely. So now you can know that Spyware Clear, in fact, is a rogue malware to defraud your money. Actually it scares you by displaying fake security warning, and in many cases, those infected files don’t even exist in your system. Don’t trust this fake antivirus, it is a malware itself and does no good to your computer. Spyware Clear can block and disable legitimate Windows applications and other normal functions like Windows Task Manager and Registry editor. Every time when it automatically runs to scan, it actually disables system programs and destroys computer security shell, which will result in more and more loopholes and create opportunities to bring other viruses to mess up computer. Therefore, it is wise to uninstall Spyware Clear at once.
