Active Pro Security 2011

By Domesticus in Rogue Anti-Spyware Program

Active Pro Security 2011 is a rogue security program often found in unscrupulous outlets such as fake Adobe Flash Player update and bogus security websites with online virus scanner pages. The fake online virus scanner will list fictitious spyware threats so you feel you need to download one of the so-called recommended security programs. The online virus scanner is fake and cannot detect any spyware; it's simply a web page with images and it uses a javascript to issue the same fabricated spyware results no matter what computer it's on.

In the bogus security websites and online virus scanner webpages, rogue makers often change the list of programs they "recommended" to their victims; therefore, you may be asked to download and install an unregistered version of Active Pro Security 2011. Active Pro Security 2011 is a copy of the rogue anti-virus application Active Pro Security Antivirus.

Once Active Pro Security 2011 is installed, it configures itself to run automatically every time you boot up your computer. Once active, Active Pro Security 2011 will scan your computer and list malware threats, but these infections are, in fact, fake. Active Pro Security 2011 wants you to believe there's a spyware problem on your computer and the solution is to purchase Active Pro Security 2011. Active Pro Security 2011 does not provide any real spyware removal to computer users. Remove Active Pro Security 2011 with a legitimate anti-malware program and do not follow any requests from this bogus security program.
