Green AV. How to Remove? (Uninstall Guide)

removal by - -   Also known as GreenAV, Green Antivirus, Green AV Pro | Type: Rogue Antispyware
12
Green AV is a rogue security application that reports false or exaggerated system security threats to make you think that your computer is seriously infected. The rogue program then asks to purchase a registered version of Green AV to remove threats that don not really exist. This misleading application is just another variant of Green Antivirus 2009 malware. Do not purchase it! Uninstall Green AV from the system as soon as possible.

Green AV is usually promoted through the use of Trojans, fake online anti-malware scanners and other misleading websites. The rogue program is promoted on green-av-pro.com and green-av.com. Please stay away from these websites. It uses Microsoft Windows XP graphical user interface elements, logos, icons to make it look more reliable and reputable. Once installed, the rogue program will display fake security alerts claiming that your PC is under attack or that is seriously infected. These fake security alerts look like those legitimate from Widows Security Center. This parasite may also impersonate Windows Security Center and report that anti-virus protection is disabled. You will see the following fake security notification:

"Your PC is not protected
Security center reports that 'Green AV' is inactive. Antivirus software helps to protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. Click here for the suggested actions. You system might be at risk now."

While running, GreenAV will ostensibly scan the system and display a variety of infections that can't be removed unless you purchase the program. The scan results are false; do not purchase Green Antivirus because it won't help you. Instead, you should remove this infection form your PC immediately because it will likely download additional malware onto your computer. What is more, it will block antivirus programs and hijack Internet browsers. As result, you will be redirected to various untreated and misleading websites that are full of advertisements or promote rogue security programs.

If you find that your computer is infected with this parasite, please use the removal guide to get rid of GreenAV manually for free. Related files: Uninstall.exe
