Here is another rogue Anti-Spyware app and its linked to http://www.pcprivacytool.com/. When you click on Buy Now, you are directed there.
What a rip off. Here are some more screenshots. The installer is installer_en.exe and is not detected well at all. However, i am not getting the program via a trojan. So, the install file could be different.

Here is a new Rogue Anti-Spyware program, please stay away!!!!
You will be directed to a site to remove porn form websites. It obliviously a scam. The program costs 39.95 to remove malware. However the stuff it detects is bogus!!!
When you click on Detect and Erase Porn Now you will prompted to download installprivacyprotectorfree.exe. This will install the rogue app. Here are some more screenshots of the install. Anti-Virus detect is limited at best.
