Antivirus V8 is another rogue antispyware program that was designed to complicate computer users’ lives and rip them off. It’s an application that pretends to be a security tool without having any actual abilities to perform any task at all. Antivirus V8 was designed by computer criminals who only have one goal – to earn more and more money without doing an actually job.

Antivirus V8 is based on empty software of security tool which means that it imitates every function of a removal tool but is not able to perform any function truly. Basically, when the program is installed it is run right after the first computer reboot. Later on the same is repeated each time the system is restarted. Antivirus V8 looks just like any legitimate antispyware program. It runs system scan and displays a bunch of files supposedly detected on your computer and then states they pose risk to your machine.

Antivirus V8 recommends purchasing a full version of its program in order to remove threats that have been detected. However, everything will end by swindling your money away as such version of a program doesn’t even exist.

Besides, while Antivirus V8 is running on the system it causes tons of pop up ads and security notifications that warn about system threats like Trojans, spyware and malware detected on your system and other security problems. All of them are also meant to make computer user pay for Antivirus V8.

You are strongly advised to remove Antivirus 8 as soon as possible. That’s is one and only way to get rid of all unwanted actions that are cause by this badware.
