removal by - -   Also known as PCAntivirusPro, PCAntivirus Pro | Type: Rogue Antispyware
12
PC Antivirus Pro is a rogue security program that is promoted through the use of Trojans and other malware. Usually, this rogue program comes from fake online anti-malware scanners or misleading online video web sites. Once installed, PCAntivirusPro will simulate a system scan and report a variety of malware infections on your computer such as adware, spyware and Trojans. Then it will prompt you to pay for a full version of the program to remove the infections which of course don't even exist on your computer. The only real infection is PC Antivirus Pro itself, so you obviously shouldn't purchase it. Instead, please us the removal instructions below to remove this fake program from your computer as soon as possible.

When running, PC Antivirus Pro will also display many fake security alerts stating that your computer is either infected with malware or under attack by an Internet virus. Anyway, that's not true. Those fake security alerts are being shown to scare you into thinking that your computer is compromised. However, the biggest problem is that this fake program actually blocks legitimate anti-virus and anti-spyware programs to protect itself from being removed. It also hijacks Internet Explorer as well as other web browsers and redirects users to various misleading web sites full of false information or ads. One way or another, you should uninstall PC Antivirus Pro from your computer upon detection.

If you find that your computer is infected with this virus, please use the removal instructions below to remove PC Antivirus Pro from your PC either manually or with an automatic removal tool. If you have already purchased this phony program, please contact your credit card company and dispute the charges. Related files: av.exe
