Antivirus .NET

The newly discovered rogue antispyware tool Antivirus .NET terrorizes PC owners with its vindictive and nasty nature. Following suit with its predecessors Antivirus Scan and Antivirus Action, Antivirus .NET enters the system surreptitiously and will remain dormant until it starts its attack on the system. The developers behind Antivirus .NET have only one goal, to take advantage of PC owners’ gullibility and in so doing making a quick buck by ripping them off.

Antivirus .NET enters the system without the knowledge of the user. It does not ask permission, and its infiltration is virtually undetectable. The first inkling the user will have of Antivirus .NET being present on his PC will be when Antivirus .NET starts an unsolicited and fake system scan. This scan will yield up false positives advising you about severe threats as being present on the system. Following this, the user will receive a barrage of fake security messages. These messages will contain sly calls to action which if acted upon will make it easier for Antivirus .NET to rip the consumer off. It is for this reason that none of the fake security alerts generated by Antivirus .NET should be paid any attention. Some of the more notorious fake security notifications used by Antivirus .NET include the following:

Security Warning
Application cannot be executed. The file notepad.exe is infected. Do you want to activate your antivirus software now.

Windows Security Alert
Windows reports that computer is infected. Antivirus software helps to protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. Click here for the scan your computer. Your system might be at risk now.

Internet Explorer warning - visiting this site may harm your computer! Most likely causes:
The website contains exploits that can launch a malicious code on your computer
Suspicious network activity detected
There might be an active spyware running on your computer

It is blaringly obvious that none of these fake security warnings can ever be trusted. Antivirus .NET will include surreptitious calls to action in its fake security alerts which if acted on will make it much easier for Antivirus .NET to rip the consumer off. It is therefore important never to act on any fake security notifications by this incredulous rogue, and to simply delete Antivirus .NET without any excuse or delay.

The truth of the matter is that Antivirus .NET was never designed to be of any benefit to any PC. Antivirus .NET does not have the ability to detect, quarantine or remove any security threats or infections from a PC, as Antivirus .NET is nothing more than an infection in itself.

Certain destruction and crippling devastation follows any Antivirus .NET infection. In order not to become its next victim destroy Antivirus .NET from your system before it destroys your PC. Do this by investing in a genuine and powerful security tool which will not only protect get rid of Antivirus .NET but also offer protection against future similar threats and infections.

    Hey luciano,
    We will research this problem and update instructions in next few days

  5. Pcthreat Feb 7, 2011

    Hello charle and luciano,

    Instructions are correct but the problem is that Antivirus .NET automatically changes proxy settings back just after you click ok.

    You will have to to put a setup file of our suggested antispyware tool into infected system and run it. When setup file is executed it will automatically fix the problem. And you will have internet connection back again.

    If you have any issues feel free to ask

    A simple registry cleaner will find the registry entries without files. The registry entries that I found concerning were in Internete Explorer-phishing filter and Windows/Current User/Internet Explorer- proxy server settings and proxy server
