There is no doubt that Win 8 Antivirus 2014 is a fake security application/malware remover. Even though the interface of this program suggests that the program can identify existing threats, delete malware and protect your virtual security, truthfully it is just a rogue which has been created by cyber criminals. The same schemers may release XP Antivirus 2014, Vista Antivirus 2014 or Win 7 Antivirus 2014 to create a widespread attack. Of course, you have to remove this malware from the operating system, regardless of which version you operate, as soon as possible. So, how should you delete Win 8 Antivirus 2014?

Devious rogue antispyware programs are usually reinforced by misleading interfaces, and this is not different with Win 8 Antivirus 2014. The program presents a stylized Windows logo, suggests that your security level is LOW and offers to employ the full version of the fictitious malware remover. The interface of the rogue mimics the colors and the layout of the Windows 8 interface, and this is what confuses the targeted users. To create the illusion of attacking malware, Win 8 Antivirus 2014 automatically initiates a system scan and lists tens of different threats you supposedly need to remove. The removal of fictitious threats may be suggested by irritating pop-up warnings, like the one below.
