WinActive Antivirus

WinActive Antivirus Description

WinActive Antivirus is a rogue anti-spyware application that attempts to resemble a part of MS Windows operating system. It does this by implementing a logo that looks remarkably similar to a Windows OS logo, while also displaying "Windows Security Center" pop-ups. Typically, WinActive Antivirus is installed onto a computer via trojans or after visiting a malicious website, and once active, WinActive Antivirus generates numerous pop-ups persuading you to purchase the full version of WinActive Antivirus.
