System Care Antivirus (can also be found as System Care Antivirus 3.7.33) is a dangerous application, which is definitely far away from what it presents itself for PC users. While it may seem to you as a sophisticated anti-virus solution with many useful options, in reality it's just another rogue that tries to steal your money. It does that by selling the fake license, which is promised to fix PC and remove viruses. If you would try to check your system with System Care Antivirus, you would see that it is capable of finding many different viruses on your computer. Relax, they are all fake. You should also know that this virus is just another version of AVASoft Professional Antivirus, Disk Antivirus Professional and many other viruses that have been spread by hackers previously. They all share the same GUI and also rely on the same marketing strategy, which is based on fake alerts and scanners. You can safely ignore these notifications and you should remove this virus  without any delay.

HOW CAN I GET INFECTED WITH System Care Antivirus?

System Care Antivirus is distributed without users' knowledge. You can get infected with it if you tend to visit illegal websites, download freeware, open spam or fall for fake alerts that typically ask to update your outdated Flash Player in order to watch something online. As soon as you click on such alert, you download Trojan horse, which additionally downloads malicious files that belong to System Care Antivirus. Once it gets inside the system, this virus tries to make itself perfectly comfortable there and modifies some of its parameters. As a result, it gets ability to start every time you reboot your computer and begins displaying its fake alerts and system scanners that, in fact, have absolutely nothing valuable inside. Please, ignore these notifications:

Comments on System Care Antivirus

I just got it opening a delivery notification. How i got rif of it was going to task manager and stopping the process...going to the file location and deleting the Systemcare exe...emptying the recycle bin. I am back up and running so far with no interference.
I used the step 2 method worked great, thank you!
Your first mistake is using any windows products.
get a Mac and you will never have these problems
This virus would not let me do anything! i tried renaming the files but it would only reproduce itself. Then following anothers advice i went to the source file. it was there that i renamed the two files and whoa la it worked.

The easiest way to get rid of System Care Antivirus is to run System Restore to a time before you got the virus.
It worked perfectly for me.
Indeed SpyHunter costs money. There are methods you can find online to do it for free, however SpyHunter does have the advantage of doing it with only one reboot. This can be advantageous if you are directing someone to remove it and you dont have the luxury of being with them to reboot into safe mode, edit registry keys, reboot regular, etc.

As for the writers of the system care antivirus worm, it is highly unlikely they would ever face any kind of criminal charges. Most likely they are not from the US which is one of very few countries with any kind of criminal law against such activity.
Thank you
Step 2 worked.
Capitalism at its best!!!!! 30min scan by Spyhunter and they want $$$$$$$$! Thanks for wasting my time! I will never buy anything advertised on this site!
You should mention that Spy Hunter costs money. A$$hole. I did a full scan only to asked to be paid at the end.
Used the activation code and then was able to open task manager, end the process and permanently delete the file. Thanks so much!
Thanks so much for the info. The 2nd step worked by entering the security code. After that the task manager worked and I was able to delete it!
The makers of this virus/malware should be prosecuted. However, probably they will not be. Why?
Hey there,
We had a win7 pc infected with this thing. It came through some website currently unknown. I started the PC in safe mode (F8 during boot). Then I found the folder it started from by checking properties on the shortcuts it had placed on the desktop and in startmenu. In dos I deleted the folder. "rd xxxx /s". In regedit I removed two keys. One was found using search in regedit. The other listed above in your instructions. Thank you for your help.
