Antivirus Protection

Antivirus Protection is a fake virus removal tool, and it is a direct clone of Antivirus Monitor. These rogue antispyware programs present themselves as genuine malware detection tools, which is far from the truth. They only fake the appearance of a well-known security program, in order to trick the unsuspecting users into believing that they simply must use Antivirus Protection to cleanse their computer from serious threats. But the problem is that believing in such promises will bring nothing but harm.

Due to the fact that Antivirus Protection is designed to enter the PC’s system without user being aware of that, it is easy to catch this infection and then continue unprotected for quite sometime, because Antivirus Protection can install itself though a procedure which rarely involves your participation. This is why we strongly recommend downloading the suggested malware scanner and checking your computer for any possible infections.

The possible Antivirus Protection’s infection renders the Internet browsing a rather dangerous activity. You have to be cautious of suspicious links, and flashy advertisements, because that is one of the most popular ways for Antivirus Protection to get into your computer. There are various fake online malware scanners promoting this rogue. Naturally, you don’t land in these sites on your own accord, you are forcefully redirected there. And sometimes the rogue installation file is downloaded to your computer automatically whether you like it or not.

If you have Antivirus Protection in your computer already, you will see that the rogue starts a fake system scan, just like any other rogue application out there. It will inform you that numerous malicious infections have been detected in your machine, although that is a blatant lie. Antivirus Protection does not have the ability to scan your computer. It cannot remove any malware. So you must ignore all the fake security notifications you receive from this rogue, as well as its urges to purge the infections by using Antivirus Protection.

This rogue only wants your money, as you can perfectly see from its purchase page, because if you try to fix the errors by following Antivirus Protection’s instructions, you will be told to buy the full version of the program. That is so because supposedly the Trial version of Antivirus Protection cannot do anything. The truth is, this program itself cannot do anything related to computer protection. The only thing it can do is rip you off and then leave your system utterly destroyed. Therefore, before that happens you need to terminate Antivirus Protection from you computer as soon as you can. It is possible to remove it manually, but you think this might be too hard for you, you can always use a reliable malware detector to do the job for you.
