Alpha Antivirus

Alpha Antivirus is not a wonderful and effective antivirus like the name suggests. Alpha Antivirus is rather fake rogue software which is geared to trick users. Do not be fooled by the clever name that it uses or the clever tactics that it makes use of in order to try trick its users.

Alpha Antivirus runs the risk of gaining access to your machine, without your knowledge. It may enter your system via various Trojans or even the Vundo Trojan itself. Once Alpha Antivirus is on your system, a fake scan will be performed. This fake scan will go a step further and present you with a fake security report. Alpha Antivirus will claim that you have malicious dangerous viruses running on your machine. It will tell you that you need to remove it immediately. It will then present you with a removal option in the form of a full version.

Alpha Antivirus will ask you to purchase the full version for a small fee. Do not let any of this scare you into buying anything. Do not download or install anything related to Alpha Antivirus as it is all a false scam. Alpha Antivirus is something you should rather think of as Fake Antivirus 2009, as everything is completely fake. Do not be the next victim, stay as far away from Alpha Antivirus as you can. If you suspect that it may be on your computer, don’t hesitate to get rid of it straight away.

    I had Alpha Antivirus put on my machine whilst my daughter was on Facebook of all things. Pain in the *****, it takes over your computer doesnt let u uninstall it and generally it ends up u turning it off and go watch T.V. I ended up system restore doesnt seem to be on now fingers crossed.

    sheridandog - when did you get the virus? how long did you have the virus for before you decided to do system restore?

    how exactly did you get the malware? I think I accidentally downloaded it today, but can't be sure. Can you please describe your experience? thank you
