AV Antivirus Suite is a rogue anti-spyware program from the same family as AV Security Suite. Once installed, this rogue program will disable certain system tools, block legitimate antivirus and anti-spyware programs and nearly all websites and display fake security alerts to make you think that your computer is infected with malware. The rogue program will state that your computer is infected with Trojans, adware, spyware and other viruses. It will display fake error message titled “Application can not be executed” when you attempt to launch anti-spyware program. The main goal of AV Antivirus Suite is to trick you into purchasing a license of this program. Don’t buy it, because AVAntivirusSuite is nothing more but a scam. Instead, please follow removal instructions below to remove AV Antivirus Suite from your computer upon detection.

As a typical rogue program, it will display a bunch of fake security alerts and pop-ups about spyware infections. Just like the false scan results, fake security alerts were made to scare you into thinking that you are infected. Please ignore false scan results and fake security alerts. AV Antivirus Suite will also hijack Internet Explorer and redirect you various unrelated or misleading websites full of other malware or advertisements. It will block nearly all security related websites to protect itself from being removed. What is more, AV Anti-virus Suite modifies LAN settings and enables proxy server. You will have to restore default settings, otherwise, you won’t be able to download antispyware programs from the Internet.

    when i get to the screen to choose “safe mode”, it's as if the arrow keys are locked and I cannot choose SF. How do i get past this?

  • fil

    When I tried to reboot in safe mode the computer restarted itself. Now no matter what I do it restarts on its own without giving windows a chance to load. Anybody know why?

    My screen won't budge from being completely black w/a blinking cursor.

  • Guest

    When I press f8 the black screen opens, but Safe Mode is not even an option. The only thing that shows up is:

    Windows Boot Manager
    Choose an operating system to start:
    Microsoft Windows XP

    There isn't the usual choice for Safe Mode. What else can I do?

    PC Tools is another virus!!! It's not a free mal/spyware removal tool such as Malware bytes. It will only infect your PC further and prompt you to buy their services to have your “infected” items removed. Download with caution!
