Alpha Antivirus. How to remove? (Uninstall guide)

removal by Ugnius Kiguolis - -   Also known as AlphaAntivirus | Type: Rogue Antispyware

Alpha Antivirus is a misleading anti-virus program that deliberately displays fake security alerts and reports false system security threats to trick you into thinking your computer is infected with spyware, adware, Trojans or other malicious software. The graphical user interface of this bogus application is almost identical to widely spread rogue’s anti-spyware application called Personal Antivirus. When the program is installed it will list a variety of infections and prompt you to pay for a full version of the program to remove infections which do not even exist. You shouldn’t purchase this program. We strongly recommend you to uninstall Alpha Antivirus from your computer upon detection.

Alpha Antivirus is installed through the use of fake online anti-spyware scanners and Trojan viruses. Trojans, usually FakeAV, display fake security alerts and notifications stating that your PC is infected or under attack by an Internet virus. FakeAV variants may also download additional malware. In this case is also installs a password stealer on the compromised computer. Once active, AlphaAntivirus will be automatically configured to imitate system scan and display bogus results each time you log on into Windows. As we have already mentioned, the scan results are fake, you may safely ignore them. The main goal of this infection is to trick you into purchasing totally useless software.

Furthermore, Alpha Antivirus will block anti-virus programs and security related websites to protect itself from being deleted. It may disable certain Windows tools and options too, for example Task Manager, Registry Editor and etc. The program will also impersonate Windows Security Center and state that you must purchase AlphaAntivirus to ensure full system protection. As you can see, this program is nothing more but a scam. Please use the removal guide below to remove Alpha Antivirus from your computer manually for free.
