What is Antivirus 7?
Antivirus 7 (also called as Antivirus7) is a totally misleading anti-spyware software that must be avoided. Just like a long list of similar rogue applications, it seeks to convince users that their computers are infected with hundreds of different viruses. After convincing them that their machines are full of trojans, rootkits and similar cyber threats, Antivirus7 claims that victim needs to purchase its commercial version. Of course, you should do that only if you want to lose your money because this program belongs to hackers who are trying to increase their income. Besides, this rogue anti-spyware is not only dangerous. It’s a really annoying threat that starts its work every time users reboot their computers. In addition, it announces about hundreds of cyber threats that were supposedly detected on the system. No matter how good these reports look, make sure that you remember the fact that this application has nothing to do with PCs security. Keep in mind that Antivirus 7 has no data base or removal engine, so it is not capable of detecting viruses on your computer. Please, do NOT fall for its fake notifications and remove it if this program has already been spotted on your machine. You can know that from its scanners that are typically displayed right after rebooting computer. If that is the case, please run a full system scan with Reimage.
How can Antivirus 7 infect my computer?
Antivirus 7 is mostly propagated through fabricated online scanners and trojans viruses that hide in video codecs foolishly required for watching videos online. When the malware is installed, it starts using malicious techniques trying to convince users that they really need to purchase it. Antivirus 7 classically loads deceptive pop up ads telling users about cyber threats they have and additionally redirects them to the websites actively promoting malware as well.
