Anti-Virus Elite is a misleading antivirus program that may deliberately report false system security threats to make you think that your computer is infected. Usually, this bogus program must be manually installed, but it may come bundled with other malware too. Anti-Virus Elite is promoted through the use of these websites: noadware.net, thedllgeek.com, anti-virus-professional.com and antivirus-elite.com. Of course, there can be more similar websites that promote this program. Also note that most of these websites are titled Anti-Virus Elite 2010, but when you actually install this rogue program, you will see Anti-Virus Elite v5.0 instead of Anti-Virus Elite or Anti-Virus Elite 2010. What is more, there is another suspicious program called NoAdware v5.0 that looks just like Anti-Virus Elite.

At least Anti-Virus Elite doesn’t display fake security alerts and notifications like typical rogue anti-virus/spyware applications do. However, this is still a scam. The misleading program should be removed as soon as possible. And most importantly, don’t purchase it. Please use the removal guide below to remove Anti-Virus Elite from your PC manually for free.
