Palladium Antivirus

Palladium Antivirus Description

Palladium Antivirus is a fake anti-virus program and a clone of a Security Shield and Security Tool. Palladium Antivirus often comes bundled with a malicious backdoor trojan that runs in the background. With the help of a backdoor trojan, Palladium Antivirus can take control of a user's computer and perform harmful tasks. Protect Shield will issue bogus system notifications stating that the computer is infected with malware. This heinous tactic is intended to lure PC users to purchase the commercial version of Palladium Antivirus. Palladium Antivirus's other tactic is to run a scanner that pretends to check the system for malware, yet it only lists false positives as malware results. Palladium Antivirus's only goal is to trick PC users with imaginary threats and demand for payment to make the supposed troubles go away. Palladium Antivirus will not fix your malware problems because the program is not equipped with malware detection or removal capabilities; therefore, PC users should not purchase the ineffective tool.
