Nortel Antivirus is a misleading security application that displays false scan results, fake security alerts and reports non-existing system security threats on your computer. Do not confuse this rogue program with Norton Antivirus which is well know and reliable anti-virus software. Once installed, NortelAntivirus will list a variety of infections and ask you to purchase the program in order to remove computer threats which do not even exist. Do not purchase it! Instead, uninstall Nortel Antivirus from your computer as soon as possible.
Usually, Nortel Antivirus is promoted through the use of Trojans, specifically Trojan.FakeAValert. This Trojan downloads the rogue security program secretly without your knowledge and permission. The misleading application can be also advertised through the use of fake online anti-malware scanners and browser hijackers. The homepage of Nortel Antivirus is nortel-antivirus.com, however, do not download and install this bogus software.
While running, NortelAntivirus will be automatically configured to scan your computer each time you log on into Windows. The bogus program will state that your computer is seriously infected and that you should purchase a full version of the program to remove those infections. Of course, we strongly recommend you not to do so because the scan results are false. Furthermore, Nortel Antivirus will constantly display fake security alerts and notifications about various privacy issues and security problems. It will claim that your antivirus software is disabled too. Obviously that’s not true.
If you find that your computer is infected with this parasite, please use the removal guide below to remove Nortel Antivirus from the system manually for free. Also be sure to scan your computer with reliable anti-spyware application.
