Disk Antivirus Professional is a rogue anti-spyware, which hails from the same family as Smart Fortress 2012, Smart Protection 2012, System Progressive Protection, Personal Shield Pro, Live Security Platinum and many others. It is called WinWebSec. They all use identical GUIs and apply misleading techniques that are dedicated for the only aim - to swindle the money from PC users. If you are interested in this technique, we must firstly say that you should never believe Disk Antivirus Professional's alerts because they report about invented viruses and security problems. After doing that and scaring its victim, malware additionally offers to purchase its licensed version and remove those parasites. However, this 'licensed version' doesn't exist and purchasing it only means supporting the scammers. We highly recommend to remove this virus from your computer instead.
Disk Antivirus Professional installs on its target computers secretly and without user’s permission asked. For that, it uses trojan horses that hide inside safely-looking downloads, such as media codecs, fake software updates, spam attachments and similar. Once inside the system, it drops some harmless files there and also includes its own Registry values that should help it to launch as soon as user reboots his computer. Additionally, this virus begins to show its worst side and floods its victims with annoying pop-up notifications and aggressive pop-up ads. As we have said, they all announce about viruses or simply warn the victim about possible dangers:
