What this infection does:

AntiMalware GO is a rogue anti-spyware program from the same family as Antivirus Scan. When this infection is installed on your computer it will be configured to start automatically. Once started it will scan your computer and list numerous infections in the scan results. If you attempt to remove any of these so-called infections it will state that you first need to purchase the program in order to remove anything. As these scan results are all fake, please do not purchase this program based upon anything it states.

While running, AntiMalware GO will also display fake security alerts on your computer. These security alerts are used to make you think that there are various security problems on your computer. The text of some of these alerts include:
