Antivirus 7 Description

ScreenshotAntivirus 7 is a rogue anti-virus application. Antivirus 7 is able to enter a system with the help of Trojans that take advantage of backdoors or existing vulnerabilities in a computer system. On infiltrating a system, Antivirus 7 will generate a number of fake system security alerts as well as conduct a bogus system scan which will claim that the machine is infected with numerous malware. Following the security notifications, the victim will be advised to purchase the "full version" of Antivirus 7 in order to remove all the purportedly detected computer threats. Antivirus 7 is not to be trusted; it is actually a computer threat which should be removed upon detection.

    I have been reading a lot about this virus and it is causing a lot of trouble. Some people work with it on their pcs and think it is ok to leave as they know the scans are fake, do not do this mistake, make sure you properly remove the virus to prevent any data theft from occuring.

    HOW do I remove this av7 program from my pc??? Got this pc from a friend and cannot for the life of me seem to get rid of the av7!! Please help! TIA

  • Kate Simps:

    Once I got viruses on my computer I received an offer from Antivirus 7 to get rid of all the threats by ordering their software. As the viruses wouldn't let me go anywhere I decided to purchase this software, though never heard of it before. Unlike the persons who posted a comment above Antivirus 7 had cleaned up my system from all the crap and I'm quite satisfied with it so far.

    Also Why didn't you used the support service? I did it and it helped me a lot. I couldn't figure out what I was doing wrong until I talked to a representative of the support. Be carefull & good luck!

    Hi Kate Simps,

    You have given your credit card information to cybercrooks. You did not buy a legitimate program and you may be in danger of damaging your system. Antivirus 7 is NOT a legitimate spyware removal program. You may want to contact your credit card company at once and notify them of the situation.
