DoctorV is the latest rogue anti-spyware application, which was designed to attempt to dupe unsuspecting PC users into believing their dubious tactics to be true, and ultimately persuade them into purchasing the full version of this nefarious application.
DoctorV usually spreads by using browser hijackers to redirect the user to websites hosting fake online system scans and thus tricking him into downloading the program.
As is typical of rogue anti-spyware software like this, DoctorV doesn’t deviate much from the typical and most widely practiced tactics of PC parasite infiltration.
DoctorV tends to also make use of affiliated backdoor Trojan infections, usually Trojan Vundo or Zlob, in order to ensure hidden penetration into the targeted machine is successful.
Once inside the designated system, DoctorV will obscurely create hundreds of fake malware entities in the infiltrated system. Once this is done, DoctorV will then “detect” these dummy files and ensure the unsuspecting user, you, think it’s high time you removed all the reported malware.
DoctorV’s malicious trialware usually runs each time you log onto Windows and will display its fake system scanner that claims to find a variety of corrupted dangerous files.
As a well-practiced tactic, DoctorV will have you believe that in order to protect your Operating System against these “detections”, you will be prompted to install DoctorV’s full commercial version which demands payment.
DoctorV has the following properties:
If you do install DoctorV licensed software, you will soon realize that it’s not only worthless in terms of malware removal, but it compromises any computer systems’ performance and will eventually slow down the computer considerably.
One should remove the DoctorV rogue anti-spyware application as soon as it has been detected.
