Windows Virus Hunter spreads via Trojans and enters the targeted computer without the PC owner’s consent. The fraudware won’t offer you real computer protection services. Windows Virus Hunter is able to bypass your genuine anti-virus software and, thus, can evade detection and removal. When installed on the infected computer, the parasite will execute continuous system scans and generate faux malware threats in order to make you believe you have serious issues with your computer.
