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

removal by - -   Also known as AdvancedVirus Remover, Advanced VirusRemover, AdvancedVirusRemover | Type: Rogue Antispyware
12
Advanced Virus Remover is a rogue security application promoted through the use of Trojans, fake advertisements and online anti-malware scanners. It is advertised as an anti-virus software, but in reality, though, AdvancedVirus Remover is just another scam. The main purpose of the rogue is to scare you into thinking that your computer is seriously infected with malware, spyware and other parasites. Once, this program is installed and active, it will simulate system scan and display many bogus infections that won't be removed until you purchase Advanced Virus Remover.

AdvancedVirusRemover will also display fake security alerts and notifications about various privacy issues. It will state that your computer is unprotected and that certain viruses can damage your confidential data. Here's an example of fake security alert generated by Advanced Virus Remover:

"System warning!
Continue working in unprotected mode is very dangerous. Viruses can damage your confidential data and work on your computer. Click here to protect your computer."

You should ignore such fake notifications and remove Advanced Virus Remover from your computer immediately after the first appearance. Please use the manual removal guide stated below to remove Advanced VirusRemover from your PC if it is already infected. Removal delay will only worsen the situation, because this parasite may download more malware onto your computer. Advanced Virus Remover properties:
• Changes browser settings
• Shows commercial adverts
• Connects itself to the internet
• Stays resident in background

My brother got this one day when we had friends over once and it showed up. Though he waited too long and it installed an even worse malware on to his computer. Malware Defense...

Turn your PC off. then turn it on and press F8 select Safe mode. From here you are able to run programs like Malewarebytes and Trojan Remover. This should allow you to clean up your PC

FML. It doesn't let me do anything! It changed my background to and ugly green with a black rectangle that says I have viruses. It also says that I can't open up task manager because my admin won't let me when I am the only account on the laptop. And it doesn't let me do ANYTHING.
