Antivirus 2009 Description

Type: Rogue AntiSpyware Programs

ScreenshotAntivirus 2009 (or Antivirus2009) is a rogue anti-spyware program and is a clone of Antivirus 2008. Antivirus 2009 is usually installed by a Trojan called Zlob via a video codec installer found on adult websites. Antivirus 2009 uses bogus spyware scans to trick the user to purchase the full Antivirus 2009 version.

Antivirus 2009 may generate misleading warning alerts and popups in order to scare the user into believing there's an infection in their computer. Once a user clicks on the fake warning alert, Antivirus 2009 will redirect the user to Antivirus 2009's website (, where the full version of the program is sold. Antivirus 2009 is not a solution to the threats it alleges to remove.

Antivirus 2009 is part of the clan of rogue anti-spyware programs that have the term "antivirus" included in their names. Vista Antivirus 2008, Ultimate Antivirus 2008, System Antivirus 2008 and Windows Antivirus 2008 are among the collection of "antivirus" named programs. Although their names and interface are slightly different, they all follow the same methods of infection. Antivirus 2009 may also generate system slowdown, instability and may be difficult to remove manually.ScreenshotScreenshotScreenshotScreenshotScreenshotScreenshotScreenshotScreenshotScreenshotScreenshot
