MicroAV Security Center

MicroAV Security Center is a rogue anti-spyware program. MicroAV Security Center is popularly known to use dubious mechanisms to steal money from computer users. MicroAV Security Center may be installed in the user's computer system by a Trojan bundled in a fake video codec download or the user may have downloaded it thinking it would remove his/her spyware infections. Once infected, the user may receive numerous popups stating that the user's computer system is flooded with spyware. In order to remove these imaginary threats, the user will be urged to purchase MicroAV Security Center's full version. However, MicroAV Security Center is not able to detect nor remove any spyware in the system.

In addition, MicroAV Security Center may run its fake system scanner to "detect" spyware infections in the user's computer system. Once the fake scan is over, MicroAV Security Center will generate a list of spyware infections as a result. These results are fake. If the user decides to protect him/herself by clicking on any of the links provided by MicroAV Security Center, he/she will be most likely redirected to a malicious website that sells MicroAV Security Center "full" version as a legitimate software.
