Windows Antivirus Pro is rogue security program that uses such misleading methods as fake security alerts, infiltration warnings and false scan results to trick the owner of the infected computer into purchasing this application. Once your computer is infected, you will notice that WindowsAntivirus Pro blocks almost all legitimate programs. Of course, security applications will be blocked in first place. Your computer will work slower that usual. Likely, you won’t be able to perform a system restore or even access Control Panel. However, there is a way to uninstall Windows Antivirus Pro from your computer, just use the removal guide below.

Usually, Windows Antivirus Pro is promoted through the use of Trojan viruses and fake online anti-malware scanners. While running, this infection will be configured to ostensibly scan your computer each time you log on into Windows. The scan results are obviously false. WindowsAntivirusPro identifies any executed program as a computer threat. You will also see many fake security alerts and warnings about serious infections, Internet attacks. Some of the alerts you will see:

“Internet attack attempt detected:
Somebody is trying to attack your PC:
This can result in loss of your personal information and infection other computers connected to your network.”

“Warning: Infection is Detected
Windows has found spyware infection on your computer!
Click here to update your Windows antivirus software”

“svchost.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.
If you are in the middle of something, the information you were working on might be lost.”

“Security Warning
Malicious programs that may steal your private information and prevent your system from working properly are detected on your computer.
Click here to clean your PC immediately.”

Most of the time these fake, but legitimately looking alerts will come from the Task bar and Windows Security Center. Windows Antivirus Pro will also hijack Internet Explorer and display warnings about insecure internet connection or other threats. As you could already understand, this program is a scam designed to steal money from you. It’s absolutely non-functional scam.

    If you can open your anti virus or spyware programs, try right click and click
    “run as” then un-check the protect box. then your programs may be able to id and remove the files and registry keys. You will have to do this to each of your programs some more than once until the bug is removed.

    Removing the text from desktop:
    Display Properties > Desktop tab > Customize Desktop button > Web tab
    Uncheck anything in that list. It wouldn't let me delete them until I went out and applied the wallpaper. That should take care of it.

    Ending this process really helped out in my Antivirus pro problem. I had the virus yesterday and after ending that and a few scans my computer is almost back to normal.
