Antivirus Software

Antivirus Software Description

Antivirus Software is a rogue anti-virus program that may enter a PC via fake online scanners or with the help of Trojans. On infiltration of a system, Antivirus Software will generate bogus security alerts and scan reports claiming that the system is infected with malware and the only remedy is to purchase its "full" version. Infected users should never follow any recommendations made by Antivirus Software and should have the rogueware removed from their systems as soon as possible.
