IE Antivirus 3.2, or IEAntivirus, is a rogue anti-spyware program that is promoted on the Web through trojan infested video codecs, which sneak past weak security system points and can be found on porn websites. The trojan that comes bundled with the video codec is known as Zlob. Once your computer is infected with Zlob, it will display popups that look similar to Microsoft Windows system alert messages. These fake alert messages have titles such as "Warning!", "Critical System Error!" or "Your Computer Is Infected" to convince you that your computer is in danger and that you must click on the 'OK' button to fix the problem.
As soon as IE Antivirus is installed, it will perform a fake spyware scan that will result in exaggerated threat reports and then a warning message will pop up that will prompt you to purchase IE Antivirus's full version. It is advised to delete any popups or system messages related to IE Antivirus or Zlob. No matter how legitimate IE Antivirus or it's website (www.ieantivirus.com) may look, you should not download or purchase the IE Antivirus program.
