Antivirus Pro. How to remove? (Uninstall guide)

removal by Jake Doevan - -   Also known as AntivirusPro | Type: Rogue Antispyware

Antivirus Pro is a rogue anti-spyware program that uses fake scan results and false security alerts as a method to make you think you are infected with viruses. The rogue simulates a system scan and reports fake infections. It then prompts to pay for a full version of the program to remove the threats. If you have paid for the this program already then I suggest you contact your credit card company and dispute the charges. Antivirus Pro is configured to start automatically when you login to Windows. It detects non-existent or harmless files as malware but does not allow you to remove them until you purchase the full version of the program.

While Antivirus Pro is running you will also see many f fake security alerts and warnings on your computer. These warnings will state that your computer is infected or that someone is trying to hack your computer and then suggest you purchase Antivirus Pro to protect your computer. Some of the fake alerts:

Antivirus Pro Firewall Alert
Suspicious activity in your registry system space was detected. Rogue malware detected in your system. Data leaks and system damage are possible. Please use a deep scan option.

Harmful software detected
Antivirus Pro has detected malicious software that may cause crash of your computer. Click Remove All button to remove them now.

These alerts, like the fake infections, are just another attempt of the program to try and convince you that you are infected. You should ignore anything this program reports to you.

As you can see, this software is not legitimate in any way. Don't purchase it and remove this bogus program upon detection. If you have purchased it, please contact your credit card company and dispute the charges. Then please use the removal guide below to remove Antivirus Pro from your computer manually for free or with an automatic removal tool. Please note, that Antivirus Pro will block legitimate security software. That's why you must end its processes first. If you can't do that, then reboot your computer in Safe Mode with Networking. Download an automatic removal tool and run a full system scan.
