Adware Remover is yet another rogue application – a fake spyware/adware remover, which employs intimidation in hopes of tricking him into purchasing it’s "licensed version". This parasite uses several methods to infect the system: the main, and by far the most common method, has to do with trojans (namely Zlob and Vundo), which masquerade themselves as codecs. The user can also get infected by manually downloading Adware Remover and voluntarily installing it on the system.
Upon infiltration, Adware Remover will proceed to flood the user with popups and fake system notifications, claiming he is infected and in need of an anti-spyware program. While this is true, the target should be Adware Remover itself, rather than non-existent threats. This parasite will also provide a system scan, and, consequently, a falsified report, spiced up with more of the same – the threats are either entirely made up, or the report contains false positives. Ultimately, Adware Remover tries to be bought.
AdwareRemover.com, the home of this scam, is like any other rogue website: in a nutshell, there is no contact information and no useful content.
Adware Remover is a scam and should be treated as such: do NOT download or buy it and block it’s homepage using your HOSTS file.
