What is Windows Antivirus Patch?
Cyber crooks spread their “minefield” by releasing another bogus application named Windows Antivirus Patch. This fake application is trying to pull the wool over Windows users’ eyes and make them think that they are using a legal security tool. The truth is that Windows Antivirus Patch was created to convince users that the system is full of infections which in reality do not exist or do not make any harm to the system, and to make them pay money for a supposed removal of the fake threats. If someone from your friends has installed this malware or you have it on the computer, tell them to remove Windows Antivirus Patch from your own computer.
This rogue might sneak onto the computer through suspicious email attachments from unrecognized senders, links to hazardous websites or different ways which might not arouse any suspicion that the system might get infected. Windows Antivirus Patch might be installed by users as well if it is downloaded from a so-called “official” purchase page which looks like a real and professional website offering online scans which are actually imaginary. When the rogue is installed, it might slow down the computer and spread a lot of files in the Windows Registry to make it tricky to find its location among a number of Windows files. Moreover, Windows Antivirus Patch presents fake scans and misleading warnings that do not reflect reality but might lead a user into purchasing a faux “full” version of the rogue. Please disregard these fake threats and remove Windows Antivirus Patch as soon as you spot it in your system.
Removal of the rogue is an essential operation to prevent financial data leaks.

On the other hand, you can always run an automatic removal which is using a legitimate antispyware application that will detect and delete Windows Antivirus Patch.
