Earth Antivirus is a rogue anti-spyware program from the same family as Green AV and Eco Antivirus. The rogue program uses false scan results and misleading alerts to scare users into thinking that their computers are infected. Earth Antivirus is typically promoted through the use of Trojans, fake online scanners and other websites that display pop ups stating that your computer is infected and that you should download and run Earth AV in order to clean your computer. It goes without saying, that you shouldn't trust it. And most importantly, don't purchase this bogus program. Instead, you should remove Earth Antivirus from your computer as soon as possible. The removal instructions below will show you how to uninstall this rogue program.

Once installed, EarthAntivirus will scan your computer and then list a variety of infections that cannot be removed until you purchase the program. The scan results are false and are only being shown to scare you into thinking you are infected. As a typical rogue security program, Earth Antivirus will display many fake security alerts and pop-ups from Windows Taskbar. Those alerts will claim that your computer is infected with spyware, adware and other types of malware. Please ignore those fake alerts.

As you can see, Earth Antivirus has only one goal, which is to scare you into purchasing the program. However, it's a virus itself and should be removed from the system upon detection. Also note, that of you have already purchased this bogus program then you should contact your credit card company and dispute the charges. The homepage of this rogue program is earth-av.com.
