Adware Report: Razespyware
Razespyware (also known as AZESearch) is a rogue antispyware application that installs itself on your desktop and then displays popups telling the user that they have spyware installed. The bright red flashing popups also nag the user to purchase RazeSpyware for $49.95.
The program also installs a fake keylogger (keylogger32.exe), which is detected by the "free scan". It also transmits information from your computer back to pills-catalog.net.
Razespyware is distributed via security exploits. To prevent infection, be sure to download the latest Windows security patches at windowsupdate.microsoft.com.
Automated Razespyware Removal
Aluria Antispyware, Spyware Doctor, and Spy Sweeper are all reported to remove this malware.
Another reader has reported a partial fix that is affected by installing fresh copies and running a full scan of AdAware, Spybot S&D, and Microsoft Antispyware (important: do not reboot when prompted). However, this method disables Alexa, Google, and other browser toolbars.
