Antivirus Center

With so many security threats facing PCs today, it has become near impossible to protect your system against rogue security threats such as Antivirus Center without the help of a reliable and genuine security tool. Antivirus Center is a rogue antispyware application which finds its roots in the same family as Internet Protection and Antimalware Tool. It was designed with the express purpose of fleecing consumers out of their hard earned money, while being of no value to any infected PC.

Antivirus Center enters the PC surreptitiously through with the help of browser hijacking domains and fake online malware scanners. Fake updates using the Adobe Flash software has also been reported as a popular method of spreading the Antivirus Center infection. Once Antivirus Center securely roots itself in the PC, it is configured to start each time Windows boots up. It will proceed to instigate an unwarranted and fake system scan, which will report on various distressing and crippling fake infections on the system.

As a further attack on the system, and to force the hand of the PC owner, Antivirus Center will bombard the user with various falsely generated security notifications.
