Antivirii 2011 DescriptionType: Rogue AntiSpyware Programs
Antivirii 2011 is a fake security application designed to infect a computer system in order to scam its victim into paying for a 'full version' of this fake security program. According to ESG security researchers, Antivirii 2011 was created using NRB (Napalm Rogue Builder), a hacking tool that makes creating rogue security programs a simple task. These kinds of applications allow criminals to release many fake security applications quickly in order to overwhelm malware analysts and PC security experts. Antivirii 2011 follows the same pattern as most fake security programs, and will usually act in tandem with a variety of Trojans in order to infect your computer, cause a number of problems on your computer system and protect itself from removal. The Antivirii 2011 fake security application may also be associated with a rootkit infection, making removal even more difficult. If your computer appears to be infected with Antivirii 2011, ESG malware analysts recommend restarting Windows in Safe Mode (by pressing the F8 key during start-up) and using a reliable anti-malware program to remove Antivirii 2011 permanently.
