PersonalAntispy or Personal Anti Spy, is a rogue anti-spyware program often installed by a Trojan through browser security holes. The user may have also downloaded PersonalAntispy's trial version from a rogue website thinking it would remove his/her spyware infections. Once installed, the user may receive numerous popups from known websites stating that the user's computer is infested with a large amount of spyware. If the user is tricked into clicking on this popup, he/she will be immediately redirected to PersonalAntispy's website or other malicious websites (such as antispy.biz and personalantispy.com) for an "online scan".
Once PersonalAntispy emulates its computer system scan, it will generate a list of supposed spyware infections found in the user's computer system. These results are totally bogus, they are only meant to urge you to purchase PersonalAntispy's full version to remove the imaginary threats. PersonalAntispy may cause computer slowdowns.
