I have Win 8 anti-virus 2014 installed on my system. I have attached an image. It is detecting few threats in my PC but as it is just unregistered version so i can't remove those threat. To remove the threats i need to buy full version of this software. But little bit googling shocked me. Some article says that this tool is rogue security software as this one http://www.howtoclea...by-step-removal Does anyone have knowledge about this tool? Is it really fake?

Yup, it's a rogue one
My name's Naathim and I'm a GeekU Minion! Now that we are mates and will be working together to clean your machine out of any junkware, feel free to call me Naat
Before we start please note the following:
Analysis and research take some time, also sometimes real life gets in the way, please be patient.
Limit your internet access to posting here, some infections just wait to steal typed-in passwords.
Don't run any scripts or tools on your own, unsupervised usage may cause more harm than good.
Paste the logs in your posts, attachments make my work harder and more complicated.
Stay with me to the end, the absence of symtoms doesn't mean that your machine is fully operational.
Note that we may live in totally different time zones, what may cause some delays between answers.
I can't foresee everything, so if anything unexpected happens, please stop and inform me!
There are no silly questions. Never be afraid to ask if in doubt!
Let's start and enjoy the fight!
Please reboot your computer and start tapping F8 repeatedly - Advanced Boot Options menu should appear.
Using the arrow keys try to enter Safe Mode with Networking. Does it work?
If so, do the following:
Scan with Farbar Recovery Scan Tool
Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your Desktop.
There will be two versions to download: 32-bit and 64-bit. Please download the one that is designed for your system. If you don't know which one should it be, download both of them and try each other out. Only one will run - this is the right one. Please leave it and delete the other.
- Right-click on icon and select Run as Administrator to start the tool.
> XP users click run after receipt of Windows Security Warning - Open File.
> 8 users will be prompted about Windows SmartScreen protection - click More information and Run.
- When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
- Make sure that Addition option is checked.
- Press Scan button and wait.
- The tool will produce two logfiles on your desktop: FRST.txt and Addition.txt.
Please include their content in your next reply.
