AV Protection Online

Do not believe anything AV Protection Online has to say. This rogue antispyware application was designed with malicious intent, and will only be used to fleece you out of your money. AV Protection Online derives from the same criminal developers responsible behind Cloud Protection, a well-known and highly despised rogue antispyware application. Its only purpose is to trick consumers out of their money. AV Protection Online will of course do everything in its power to come across as legitimate and gain the trust of its prospective victims, but the rogue simply does not have the ability to identify, quarantine or remove any type of threat from the system and is nothing more than a malicious infection in itself.
