AP Manager is a fake application which announces about the copyrighted content and then asks paying a fine if the user wants to avoid going to court. To be convincing even more, APManager displays Copyright Violation alert and fake I-Q Manager Antipiracy foundation scanner representing invented law firm. Don’t fall into these statements and ignore AP Manager’s alerts telling that there is various illegal material, for example games, movies and pictures, found on your PC.
The first time people may see AP Manager is when they wrongfully enter malicious website where this application is presented as download manager. If they decide to download some files, AP Manager foolishly imitates downloading and even shows how much time is left, the speed of the download or how much KB is transferred. However, there is nothing else but AP Manager installed into the PC which additionally shows Copyright Violation Alert. On this alert, program claims to detect copyrighted material and asks paying 54$ fine or go to court if the alert is ignored. Mostly, the Copyright Violation Alert reads:
As a typical rogueware, APManager must be uninstalled from the system. Please, ignore its fake Copyright violation alert and use the removal instructions below to uninstall AP Manager from your PC. If you have already paid its reported “fine”, contact your credit card company and dispute the charges.
