Antivirus Security Pro

Antivirus Security Pro Description

Antivirus Security Pro Image 1Antivirus Security Pro is a rogue security application that belongs to a large family of rogue security software known as WinWeb Security. Antivirus Security Pro is a fake security program that is disguised as a legitimate anti-virus application. Antivirus Security Pro does this by displaying false positives and bogus security warnings on the victim's computer. There are several ways in which criminals distribute Antivirus Security Pro, including malicious attack websites and spam email messages containing malicious attachments. Security analysts consider that Antivirus Security Pro presents a threat to your computer. Because of this, ESG security researchers strongly recommend that computer users remove Antivirus Security Pro from their computer immediately.

How Antivirus Security Pro Infects a Computer System

Antivirus Security Pro has many clones that include System Security, Antivirus Security, Total Security 2009, Security Tool, Trojan.RogueAV.a.gen, System Adware Scanner 2010, FakeAlert-KW.e, Advanced Security Tool 2010, System Tool 2011, Security Shield, MS Removal Tool, Total Security, System Security 2011, Antivirus Center, Essential Cleaner, Security Shield Pro 2011, Personal Shield Pro, Security Shield 2011, Security Sphere 2012, Advanced PC Shield 2012. Antivirus Security Pro, as well as its clones, make unwanted changes to your computer's settings that allow this fake security application to start up automatically when Windows starts up. Once Antivirus Security Pro starts up, Antivirus Security Pro displays a counterfeit analysis of the compromised computer. This scan will claim that the victim's computer is severely compromised by several viruses and Trojans. However, when the computer user tries to use Antivirus Security Pro to remove these fake infections, Antivirus Security Pro will display additional error messages claiming that it is necessary to download an expensive 'full version' of Antivirus Security Pro. This fake upgrade is just as useless as Antivirus Security Pro itself. Because of this, avoid paying for this bogus upgrade and instead remove Antivirus Security Pro from your computer using a reliable anti-malware application.

Besides Harming Your PC Antivirus Security Pro Tries to Rob Your Money

Rogue security applications like Antivirus Security Pro are among the most common types of online scams designed to trick inexperienced computer users into believing that their computer is severely infected. However, the problems on the victim's computer are usually caused by Antivirus Security Pro itself. For example, Antivirus Security Pro blocks legitimate security software, prevents computer users from launching applications and redirects the victim's Web browser. Apart from making the victim's computer difficult to use, these symptoms also make removal of Antivirus Security Pro more difficult than normal. Fortunately, these types of symptoms can be avoided by starting up the infected computer in Safe Mode and then using a reliable anti-malware application to remove Antivirus Security Pro completely.
