    What this programs does:
    --------------------------
    AntiTroy is a rogue anti-spyware program that is promoted through the use of Trojans that pretend to be video codecs or flash updates that are required to watch an online video. When this Trojan is installed it will download and install AntiTroy onto your computer and then configure it to start automatically. This same Trojan will also create numerous files in the on your computer with random filenames that are then detected as malware when AntiTroy scans your computer. The program, though, will state that it will not remove these files until you first purchase it. This is obviously a scam as the program detects the files it created in the first place in order to trick you into thinking there are actual malware on your computer. In reality, these files are harmless and do not pose any risk to your computer. Thus this programs scan results should be ignored.
