Why Won’t Any Anti-Spyware Remove WinAntiVirus?

My staff and I have seen so a lot of computers infected with WinAntivirus and WinAntiVirus Pro over the past few days. WinAntiVirus is advertised in pop-up ads that appear on your screen telling you that your computer is infected when it is not. f you install WinAntiVirus 2005, 2006, 2007 or Pro you had better be ready to wipe your hard drive to remove it – until now. Since there was no functioning removal process on the web for removing WinAntiVirus I tasked Adam with investigating the WinAntiVirus infection and developing a removal procedure for it. 48 hours later I have a tested removal tool that will automatically kill the WinAntiVirus processes, delete its files and remove its registry keys! I you are infected with WinAntiVirus or WinAntiVirus Pro try our WinAntiVirus removal tool. It will only be online for a limited time while we test it, then it will go into our tech toolbox. Let me know how it works! ** note that you will need to have the latest version of the Microsoft .Net framework installed to run this tool **

    I ran across your blog this morning via a Google alert I get for Spyware and Virus alerts.
    I’ll check out your removal program. Usually I recommend Hijack This to my customers who need help.
    Really nice Blog, well done.

    Take care.

    Thanks for the heads up Anony. The directory has been made public and the lin should work now.
