How to remove Antimalware Tool virus. Get rid of Antimalware Tool scam using GridinSoft Trojan Killer

We have been recently able to indentify one more virus program that is indeed going to be very malicious and threatening for many PCs. Its name is Antimalware Tool, and the outcome of its impact on the PC is really devastating. Antimalware Tool stands for the fake security application which claims being a decent and legitimate one. It should be mentioned that it is a successor of another malicious application named Best Malware Protection of which we have told you in one of our previous posts. Antimalware Tool penetrates inside of the system by means of trojan that makes an ideal path for the virus to get in.

Soon after successful penetration and installation it would imitate computer scans (which are all fake) and would show plenty of fake warning messages that claim your computer is vulnerable to threats due to weak security provisions initiated by you. It also really irritates you by showing on your desktop very many fictitious security alerts and pushes you to buy its so-called full version.

Antimalware Tool is a scareware and thus must be totally ignored and disregarded. Do not buy it, no matter how convincing it might sound or seem to be. Antimalware Tool is not worth spending your funds because you only get even more threats for your computer and no PC protection at all. Antimalware Tool also tends to redirect your web browser to fake and illegal websites that sell the rogue. Stay away from purchasing anything it suggests you. On the contrary, refer to some reliable anti-spyware application and get rid of Antimalware Tool as soon as you can. We recommend GridinSoft Trojan Killer for this purpose.
