Personal Antivirus DescriptionType: Rogue AntiSpyware Programs
Personal Antivirus is a fake anti-spyware program. Personal Antivirus was found to be a clone of two other rogue anti-spyware applications named Internet Antivirus Pro and General Antivirus. All of these applications share one main objective, getting computer users to purchase a full version.
Personal Antivirus may come from a Trojan such as Vundo by installing the Personal Antivirus application without your consent. Personal Antivirus usually generates a multitude of misleading security popups and system messages about your system having various computer infections. Personal Antivirus should not be used for detection or removal of any type of computer parasites. You must ignore all messages and system scan results that come from Personal Antivirus.
