AV7 Description

AV7 is a renamed copy of Antivirus 7 - a rogue anti-virus application. AV7 is placed into unsuspecting users' computers by sneaky Trojans. Once AV7 is inside a system it will display bogus pop-up alerts and scanners, as well as fake malware reports such as "Resident Shield: New virus detected". Users should ignore all types of notifications displayed by AV7 and never follow the recommendation to purchase its "full" version. AV7 is a useless application that should be removed upon detection.
