Through Alpha Antivirus's malicious tactics, a computer user will find their system bombarded with annoying popups and system scans that return fake results. Alpha Antivirus does not have the ability to detect or remove computer parasites therefore it is not a suggested application to use for security needs on a Windows PC

Thank you for this wonderful advices especially those who do not know yet ALPHA ANTIVIRUS like me. I thought it is really an antivirus. Thank you. More power to you. God bless.

While on Facebook, a pop-up appeared which looked like a regular Mcrosoft update. I clicked on the X to eliminate it. Wrong! it immediately downloaded onto my computer. Now it blocks every attempt to remove it including my Norton and other Microsoft programs. My next step is to report this to the Attorney General's Office.

i can not get it to remove from my computer,what do i do to get rid of it completely?
