Remove Windows Anti Malware Patch

What is Windows Anti Malware Patch?

Windows Anti Malware Patch is a fake security software from the Rogue:Win32/FakeVimes family; it is advertised online as a reliable product but all it does is to notify you of fake threats, bogus attacks and pretends to contain threats to entice users to buy its full version. Windows Anti Malware Patch is inserted to your system through the help of Trojans, as you visit infected sites and through downloading infected or malicious software.

Once Windows Anti Malware Patch invades your system, it will tell you through pop up messages that there are threats to your files and your personal data and it recommends that you scan your computer using Windows Anti Malware Patch's scan. But when you do actually press scan, you will receive a fake scan result that will mention so many invented threats; you can ignore the scan and even reject it right away. Threat messages will irritatingly display every 2 minutes plus Windows Anti Malware Patch will invade your browser to take you to its purchase site to pretend to remove the threat right away.

Some of the Windows Anti Malware Patch fake security alerts and warnings that users may get:
Warning Firewall has blocked a program from accessing the Internet C:\program files\internet explorer\iexplore.exe is suspected to have infected your PC. This type of virus intercepts entered data and transmits them to a remote server.

It's important to get rid of Windows Anti Malware Patch as soon as you see its pop ups. Use a reliable anti-spyware program to remove it plus conduct a full registry scan to check for possible infected files.
