Fake Google Antivirus notifications
It has already been established that rogue antispyware has quite a few ways of distribution. Google Antivirus targets users who utilize such search engines as Google or Bing. This computer threat shows up as a security notification that pops up on your search engine window. Despite a rather disturbing message, you should not panic and click on the “DOWNLOAD” link, because then you will certainly be infected with something worse. Suffering from Google Antivirus does not mean that you have a dangerous rogue antispyware in your computer. There must be a Trojan related to Google Antivirus redirecting your browser.
Another reason why it is obvious that Google Antivirus is related to Trojans is the file it wants you to download. When you are forcefully redirected while browsing the internet you will see this message appear on your screen:
Google systems have detected unusual traffic from your computer. Please check you PC on viruses.
Needless to say, that a lot of users might go on with the suggested download, afraid they might lose access to Google for good, but you should know better. The moment you click the “Download” button you will be forced to download a file called Trojan.Win32.Fakeav.tri – no antivirus program is called like that, so it is more than necessary to ignore fake Google Antivirus messages and delete whatever is causing them to appear.
It might be hard looking for the cause of these annoying pop-up messages on your own, so in order to remove Google Antivirus from your browser for good it is best to invest in an antimalware program that will scan your computer and will detect any malicious files present in your system. This way you will delete Google Antivirus and you will be able to utilize your favorite search engine again.
