Antivirus Protection Trial

Due to the fact that computer users want to keep their computers safe from various threats going around, certain malicious applications make use of that and pretend to be genuine security program. Antivirus Protection Trial is a rogue anti-spyware application which looks like a reliable security program, but it in fact it has been created with one an objective to swindle you out of your money. The background of this rogue only supports the evidence which says that nothing good can come of this application.

Antivirus Protection Trail is a direct clone of Antivirus Soft and AV Security Suite. The relationship between Antivirus Soft and the new rogue is more than obvious, because they share exactly the same interface, save for the fact that Antivirus Protection Trial does not have the “Activate Now” button on the left panel. There are only options “Perform Scan”, “Adjust Setting”, “Get Updates” and “Help & Support”.

Judging from these sections of the interface it is easy to see that the rogue is trying hard to come across as a genuine security application. It has the Help & Support section which is a must-have for any popular antivirus program. But the bad thing is that there is nothing beneficial about Antivirus Protection Trial. And the scan that the program performs once it is installed is nothing but fake. After the “scan” the program presents you with a list of malware “found” in your system. It also gives you the Status and the Location of the “parasites”, but if you look at this closely, you will see an error of this rogue: Antivirus Protection Trail claims to pinpoint the location in which the parasites have been found, but in stead it describes the category of the parasite. This inconsistency adds up to the evidence that this program is not to be trusted.

That said, you should not pay attention to the fake security alerts, you receive from Antivirus Protection Trial. Here are the examples of the messages you will receive from this rogue:

Virus Alert!
Application can't be started. The file notepad.exe is damaged. Do you want to active 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.

Antivirus Software Alert
Infiltration Alert
Your computer is being attacked by an internet virus. It could be a password-stealing attack, a trojan - dropper or similar.

These warnings should be ignored and Antivirus Protection Trial must be removed immediately, because this rogue tries to remain in your computer for as long as possible. In order to do that, it can block your internet access. All of that is done in order to make you pay for this completely worthless program, and you should never do that. If you pay, your credit card number will be left in the hands of cyber criminals and your bank account will be accessed illegally anytime. Prevent this from happening by deleting Antivirus Protection Trial for good. If you don’t know how to do it manually, you are advised to download a recommended malware detector tool and perform the removal automatically. Just don’t sit and wait before the matters get worse.
