How Did My PC Get Infected with AmigaAnywhere?^

The following are the most likely reasons why your computer got infected with AmigaAnywhere:

  • Your operating system and Web browser's security settings are too lax.
  • You are not following safe Internet surfing and PC practices.

Downloading and Installing Freeware or Shareware

Small-charge or free software applications may come bundled with spyware, adware, or programs like AmigaAnywhere. Sometimes adware is attached to free software to enable the developers to cover the overhead involved in created the software. Spyware frequently piggybacks on free software into your computer to damage it and steal valuable private information.

Using Peer-to-Peer Software

The use of peer-to-peer (P2P) programs or other applications using a shared network exposes your system to the risk of unwittingly downloading infected files, including malicious programs like AmigaAnywhere.

Visiting Questionable Web Sites

When you visit sites with dubious or objectionable content, trojans-including AmigaAnywhere, spyware and adware, may well be automatically downloaded and installed onto your computer.

Detecting AmigaAnywhere^
