Winfixer Pop Up Tricks Your Spyware Adware Removal Attempts


 

In an attempt to subvert honest attempts at removing malware programs from your computer system, code writers of malicious software content known as spyware and adware have created look-a-like or fake anti-spyware removal tools. These fake programs, also known as scareware, look legitimate but will often times auto download and write their own code on to your computer system.

One such program is called Winfixer Pop Up. This program is downloaded from an online source, with the claims that it can repair any problems you are having with Microsoft Windows, but only if you purchase the full version of the licensed copy.

The way the producers of this software trick you into purchasing the "licensed copy" of the Winfixer Pop Up program is by allowing you to do a trial scan of your computer system. The fake program has code embedded that prompts the software to "find" a couple of Trojans and viruses that actually do not exist on your computer.

This is the part of the code they call the hook, because it reels in unsuspecting computer users who just want a program to remove the current round of spyware that is infecting their computer systems. Once the user has been hooked, the fake program will stipulate that in order to remove these Trojans or viruses, the user must buy the full product and register it.

The Winfixer Pop Up writers are very clever in that aspect. Who else could come up with a [fake] program that detects [fake] Trojans and makes you pay money so it can download and install additional spyware on your system?

Once you realize your mistake, and really, who can blame you with the way the product is described -- it sounds like just the type of program you would need in order to fix your registry and hard drive errors -- it is almost always too late and much of your information is on its way around the world to the home computer of the person responsible for this Internet harassment.

In order to protect your computer and personal information, you are going to have to download a legitimate program from a reputable company and follow their instructions for restoring your computer system.
