Software Antivirus

Software Antivirus Description

Software Antivirus is a fake anti-virus that can be obtained on the internet via Trojans or fake security websites. These Trojans can make changes to a victim's browser settings and frequently redirect the browser to fake online system scan webpages. The victim will then be bombarded with security alerts and pop-up messages claiming that the system is infected and he/she must purchase the "full" version of Software Antivirus in order to remove all the detected threats. By no means should you waste your money on Software Antivirus; all the security notifications displayed by Software Antivirus are fake and should be ignored.
