Antivirus Center. How to remove? (Uninstall guide)

removal by Jake Doevan - -   Also known as AntivirusCenter | Type: Rogue Antispyware

Antivirus Center is a rogue anti-spyware application that displays fake security alerts and reports false system threats to make you think your computer is infected with viruses and spyware. It's from the same family as Internet Protection. The rogue pretends to scan your computer formalware and then reports numerous infections to do not even exist on your computer. It then prompts to pay for a full version of the program to remove the infections and to protect your computer against new security threats. Actually, it just tries to scam you out of your money. It detects non-existent files as malware but does not allow you to remove them until you purchase the full version of the program. If you have paid for the this program already then I suggest you to contact your credit card company and dispute the charges. To remove Antivirus Center from your computer, please use the removal instructions below.

While Antivirus Center is running you will also see many fake security alerts and warnings on your computer. These warnings will state that your computer is infected or that someone is trying to hack your computer and then suggest you purchase Antivirus Center to protect yourself. Some of the fake alerts:

Antivirus Center Firewall Alert
Suspicious activity in your registry system space was detected. Rogue malware detected in your system. Data leaks and system damage are possible.
Please use a deep scan option.

Antivirus Center Firewall Alert
Antivirus Center has prevent a program from accessing the Internet. “iexplore.exe” is infected with Trojan. This worm has tried to use “iexplore.exe” to connect to remove host and send your credit card information.

Antivirus Center Firewall Alert
Warning Keylogger activity detected! Your account in social network is under attack. Click here to block unauthorized modification by removing threats (Recommended)

Antivirus Center blocks other programs on the infected computer and may hijack Internet Explorer. To make the removal procedure easier you can activate the rogue program. Use this code: D13F-3B7D-B3C5-BD84. The rogue application then won't block anti-spyware tool and won't display fake security alerts. These alerts, like the fake infections, are just another attempt of the program to try and convince you that you are infected. If you are infected with Antivirus Center, please do not purchase it.
