Win 7 Anti-Spyware 2011 - How to remove?

 

While Win 7 Anti-Spyware 2011 might refer to couple different fake rogues, it is most likely that your PC is infected by one belonging of Braviax family of trojans. The makers of this family is known to release many rogues with generic names to the wild, quite often adding OS name and year to their names. Win 7 Anti-Spyware is not different – it belongs to multi-named rogues and will have different names on XP or Vista.
Typically, Win 7 Anti-Spyware 2011 is presented as automated update from Microsoft. In reality, it is a trojan infection due to visiting infected websites or downloading something bundled with trojans. Once in the system, Win 7 Anti-Spyware 2011 will try to convince you that your system is in dire conditions with the help of various alerts and blocking legitimate programs:

System Hijack!
System security threat was detected. Viruses and/or spyware may be damaging your system now. Prevent infection and data loss or stealing by running a free security scan.

These messages are fake. They are only there to convince you into trying to remove threats that does not exist and spend the money on full version of Win 7 Anti-Spyware. The same goes for the items detected by this rogue system “scan”. Even worse, deleting files detected by this fake AV might result at losing important information or breaking the system.
I strongly advice against paying for rogues like Win 7 Anti-Spyware 2011. This would make your private information like credit card details available for scammers. The cards will be used to fund malware development and scamming new computer users with similar parasites. The best is to disable Win 7 Anti-Spyware 2011 and update your PC with legitimate anti-malware and antivirus software to prevent re-infection.

    My 14 yr old son got the Win 7 anti spy warnings. He tried everything and finally used my debit card to purchase a 59.95 pkg and the virus disappeared along with my money. Tonight we will attempt to remove this from his laptop. I called my bank but they said not a lot could be done at this point. I am wondering who I could report this to? I hope that no other personal info goes anywhere else. Thanks!

      Usually, bank only. One could talk to police, but the sum of money is too small for them to investigate usually. On the other hand, there are card rules for credit card and bank HAS to investigate if it was scam charge. Sadly, banks will do nothing in case of debit cards.

    I’ve just been through this rigmarole today. There seemed no way to stop this rubbish running, and posing as a part of Windows 7.
    It stopped my use of ZoneAlarm somehow, putting it in the background, and seemed to control Firefox.
    It made it impossible to find the executable (tcx.exe), also stopping the ability to run MsConfig.exe, or starting the Restore Point app.
    So I tried my trusty Spybot-Search and Destroy..and it did the business !
    Cleaned out a malware called Fraud, which I think was it.
    Very glad I keep S-S&D up to date.
    (Gee, I’d love to break the legs of the cunning coders who do this !)

    I managed to get rid of the virus or at least nothing popping up anymore but all sorts of trouble left over, cannot use me E mail, cannot write in the user name nor the password etc.. seems to have corrupted stuff throughout… what can I do now. I tried resetting to date prior to infection but no go, nothing improves. feels really bad specially as I caught it when trying te see a book on google scholars. makes one become very distrusting towards everyone. giving my Email here made me think twice about it… but I am so messed up in my entire system now anyway, can’t get much worse. managed to get skype back by reinstalling it. do not know how to do that with hotmail… Any suggestions?Not sure what was meant by “entering its key in manual registration section 1147-175591-6550″ do not know how to do that. got rid of the virus with a free antivirus that I got off another site, forgot which one now…..Any help appreciated.

    I purchased mcafee total protection 2011 on April 25th 2011……after installing I had almost immediate issues with viruses. Then on may 7th 2011 I received messages stating that WIN 7 Anti-Spyware was detecting 29 known viruses on my computer. I noticed issues with the computer immediately and called mcafee to get help. finally on May 8th I let mcafee have remote access to my computer to allegedly remove the virus. They removed 2 of 29. I have seen not been able to fix my computer and it has become an electrical paper weight. I uninstalled mcafee on the 9th and on the morning of the 11th I noticed the infected computer had windows automatic updates done and there was mcafee reinstalled on the computer without the disc being in the computer or Me initiating the installation.

    I too have had this problem … Win 7 system. To address, burn a CD of Bit Defender and boot from that … Bit Defender works incredibly well … slow, but well. It will fix the problem.

    i think the easiest way the get rid of the virus is just to restore your computer to an earlier point of time…just make sure you have a backup with your files somewhere

      Herman – Look for exact parasite, this is different than win 7 anti-spyware.

    I removed the trojan that was causing the issue. it’ll be here
    C:\Windows\winsxs\x86_microsoft-windows-dfsclient_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7601.17514_none_89a197c9445dfde9\dfsc.sys
    There might be another copy of the file in Windows\system32\drivers. Look for dfsc.sys You can delete these files manually or set your anti-virus software to scan a specific folder and scan the Windows folder. Id scan never the less to clean up any possible remnants left behind

    Dumb ass people who invent these viruses. On the other hand I guess were the dumb asses who clicked the wrong link

      Mike : Looks like you got TDSS infection together with regular Rogue. Scan with TDSS Killer, this one might infect boot record as well.
