Looking Beyond Best Antivirus Software’s Pretty Interface
Best Antivirus Software uses a GUI that looks authentic. It uses trademarked logos and a layout common to leading anti-virus application in order to give off the illusion of legitimacy. However, most of this interface is just for show. When Best Antivirus Software pretends to run a system scan, it is only an animation of a progress bar, and any results simply contain names of known viruses lifted straight from a virus encyclopedia. Because of this, ESG malware analysts advise ignoring all information provided by this fake security program. While Best Antivirus Software uses a variety of pop-up notifications and error messages from the Task Bar, these are all trying to deceive the computer user into buying this fake security program.
Removing Best Antivirus Software from Your Computer System
While manual removal of Best Antivirus Software is possible, ESG malware researchers do not recommend it. This is because Best Antivirus Software belongs to a family of malware that is known for creating numerous 'junk' files in a hard drive as well as being related with several other malware threats involved in the attack. Best Antivirus Software is also often associated with a rootkit component that can be quite difficult to remove manually without harming the infected computer's operating system. Instead of manual removal, ESG security researchers energetically recommend utilizing a dedicated anti-malware application with an anti-rootkit component capable of dealing with Best Antivirus Software and its associated malware.
