CleanUp Antivirus DescriptionType: Rogue AntiSpyware Programs
CleanUp Antivirus is not a reliable security program. Trojans help in the distribution of CleanUp Antivirus, a rogue security application from the FakeVimes family, by surreptitiously placing CleanUp Antivirus into users' systems. These Trojans will also create harmless files which will be detected as dangerous malware when CleanUp Antivirus runs a fake online system scan on a compromised PC. The said scan will produce a fabricated report indicating that the system is badly infected with numerous computer threats that can only be removed with the "full" version of CleanUp Antivirus. Purchasing CleanUp Antivirus is the last thing you should do; instead use a recognized security tool to completely remove CleanUp Antivirus.
