MalwareWar - How To Remove?

Type: Rogue Anti-Spyware

MalwareWar (also known as MalwareWar 7.3) is a new rogue anti-spyware program and a successful one at that. MalwareWar is, essentially, a fake spyware remover, which uses various tactics to prove it’s non-existent legitimacy and has the goal to persuade the user to buy it’s "licensed version". MalwareWar infects the system by using trojans, such as Zlob and Vundo.

Once inside and active, MalwareWar will flood the user with popups and fake system notifications to "inform" him of an infection on the system, which is most likely non-existent. MalwareWar uses this disinformation to intimidate the user and, ultimately, to get him to buy the full version of the parasite, which is as fake as the trial.

MalwareWar’s homepage is in no way unusual: it’s got the typical mix of self-praise and fear mongering as an excuse for content, and there is no contact information present. MalwareWar uses a legitimate payment system, which is a rather rare example when it comes to rogues. Having said that, the system,, works with clients of dubious nature, such as porn sites and, obviously, rogues. The domain is registered to a person rather than a company, which does little to improve credibility.

MalwareWar is a scam and should be treated as such: do NOT download or buy it and block using your HOSTS file.

Manual removal


Important Note: Although it is possible to manually remove MalwareWar, such activity can permanently damage your system if any mistakes are made in the process, as advanced spyware parasites are able to automatically repair themselves if not completely removed. Thus, manual spyware removal is recommended for experienced users only, such as IT specialists or highly qualified system administrators. For other users, we recommend using Reimage or other tools found on
