PersonalAntivirus

PersonalAntivirus (also known as Personal Antivirus) is the latest rogue anti-spyware tool that has been spreading extremely rapidly throughout the digital world and endangering computer systems. PersonalAntivirus is illegally marketed as a utility that protects computer systems against spyware, pop-ups and slow performance. All that PersonalAntivirus does is deceive people into spending their money for its dangerous and useless registered version. PersonalAntivirus infects targeted computer systems through misleading links on some insecure web pages, corrupt downloads or via dormant backdoor Trojans that can avoid the security obstacles of your machine and onto the system undetected. Another known way of PersonalAntivirus intrusion is by redirecting your web browser to virusmelt.com site containing malicious contagious scripts. PersonalAntivirus will issue multiple overstated alerts and fake system scanners notifying you about security risks and other upcoming PC trouble. This tactic is to trick you into purchasing the licensed version of PersonalAntivirus to fix the ‘so-called’ problems. If infected, make sure you take immediate measures to get rid of PersonalAntivirus and all attendant threats.
