Eco Antivirus Description

Type: Rogue AntiSpyware Programs

ScreenshotEco Antivirus (or Eco AV) is purportedly an environmentally friendly anti-virus program that belongs to the FakeXPA family. Do not be fooled, Eco Antivirus is actually a rogue security application that persuades users into purchasing it by stating that a portion of the funds will be used for the benefit of mother earth. Eco Antivirus will display fake scan reports, warning messages and pop-ups in order to scare users into believing that their computers are infected with multiple parasites. All recommendations to purchase Eco Antivirus are not to be trusted; Eco Antivirus cannot detect or remove any computer threats. Users should rather get a legitimate security tool to remove Eco Antivirus and any other existing parasites.

Eco Antivirus has various clones, all of them using the same misleading tactics that characterise these kinds of fake security programs. Eco Antivirus clones include Antivirus 360, AntivirusBEST, Nortel Antivirus, Alpha Antivirus, Anti-virus Professional, Antivirus 2010, Cyber Security, MaCatte Antivirus 2009, Antivir, Personal Security, Ghost Antivirus, Antivirus 7, Antivirus GT, Earth Antivirus, Antivirus 8, AVG Antivirus 2011, E-Set Antivirus 2011, XP Antivirus 2013.
