AV Antivirus Suite is a rogue anti-spyware program from the same family as AV Security Suite. Once installed, this rogue program will disable certain system tools, block legitimate antivirus and anti-spyware programs and nearly all websites and display fake security alerts to make you think that your computer is infected with malware. The rogue program will state that your computer is infected with Trojans, adware, spyware and other viruses. It will display fake error message titled "Application can not be executed" when you attempt to launch anti-spyware program. The main goal of AV Antivirus Suite is to trick you into purchasing a license of this program. Don't buy it, because AVAntivirusSuite is nothing more but a scam. Instead, please follow removal instructions below to remove AV Antivirus Suite from your computer upon detection.

It will block nearly all security related websites to protect itself from being removed. What is more, AV Anti-virus Suite modifies LAN settings and enables proxy server.

Comments on AV Antivirus Suite

I call BS. Lets see if this works.
PC Tools is another virus!!! It's not a free mal/spyware removal tool such as Malware bytes. It will only infect your PC further and prompt you to buy their services to have your "infected" items removed. Download with caution!
great info, excellent instructions! Keep up the good work.
When I press f8 the black screen opens, but Safe Mode is not even an option. The only thing that shows up is:

Windows Boot Manager
Choose an operating system to start:
Microsoft Windows XP

There isn't the usual choice for Safe Mode. What else can I do?
My screen won't budge from being completely black w/a blinking cursor.
the darkman
hey thanks youve saved me from having to re-image my pc
My computer got infected with AV antivirus suite, what a nasty virus. It locked up all my funtion in my pc. I fallowed all the steps in this site and I was able to remove all the worms, easly and quick. Thank you
When I tried to reboot in safe mode the computer restarted itself. Now no matter what I do it restarts on its own without giving windows a chance to load. Anybody know why?
when i get to the screen to choose "safe mode", it's as if the arrow keys are locked and I cannot choose SF. How do i get past this?
