Advanced Virus Protection. How to Remove? (Uninstall Guide)

removal by - -   Also known as AdvancedVirus Protection, AdvancedVirusProtection, Advanced VirusProtection | Type: Rogue Antispyware
Advanced Virus Protection is a misleading security application that displays false or exaggerated scan results and fake security alerts to make you think your computer is infected. Once installed, the rogue application will give a list of system security threats and then will state that you must purchase this program to remove those threats. However, do not purchase it. You should uninstall Advanced Virus Protection from the system as soon as possible.

Advanced Virus Protection is promoted through the use of Trojans, fake online anti-malware scanner and ads or it enters the system with the help of other malware. Usually, Trojan viruses display fake security alerts stating that your computer has many security issues. Fake online anti-malware scanners display similar notifications too. While active, Trojans may hijack your Desktop and display the following text:

"System has been stopped due to a serious malfunction"
"Your computer has been shut down to prevent damage"

While running, Advanced Virus Protection will ostensibly scan your computer and list a variety of security threats that won't be removed unless you first purchase the program. The scan results are of course false. You may safely ignore them. The same applies to fake security warnings that will come from Windows task bar or Windows Security Center. The main problem with those fake security warnings is that they look like legitimate ones and it is very difficult to get rid of them. Fake security alerts will show up like every 45 seconds. What is more, AdvancedVirusProtection will also slow down your computer and block antivirus software. Likely, it will hijack Internet Explorer and Firefox too.

Advanced Virus Protection is a scam designed to steal money from inexperienced computer users. Do not purchase this program. Instead, remove Advanced Virus Protection from your computer upon detection. Related files: Uninstall.exe
