AV Security Suite. How to remove? (Uninstall guide)

removal by Jake Doevan - -   Also known as AVSecuritySuite, AVSecurity Suite, AV SecuritySuite, AV Security Suite Basic, AV Security Suite Pro | Type: Rogue Antispyware

AV Security Suite is a rogue anti-spyware program from the same family as Antispyware Soft and Antivirus Soft. Once installed, this fake program will display fake security alerts and state that your computer is infected with spyware, adware and other types of malware. Then it will prompt you to pay for a full version of the program to remove the infections and to make your computer more secure. Of course, that’s not true, because AV Security Suite is an infection itself and obviously won’t protect your computer from malware. Most importantly, don’t purchase this bogus program. If you have already purchased it, then you should contact your credit card company and dispute the charges. Finally, please follow the removal instructions below to remove AV Security Suite from your computer as soon as possible either manually or with an automatic removal guide.

Probably the most annoying thing about AVSecuritySuite is that it actually blocks legitimate software and certain system tools. It may even make your computer very slow. When running, it will display several fake pop-ups and state that your anti-virus or anti-spyware program is infected and that you should uninstall it. Furthermore, it will impersonate Windows Security Center and state that your computer is not protected against malware. It will then recommend you to buy a full version of AV Security Suite. Again, don’t do that, otherwise you will simply lose your money. It’s very important to mention that you may have to reboot your computer is safe mode with networking in order to remove this virus from your computer. AV Security Suite Basic changes Internet Explorer settings and enables proxy server. You need to restore those settings, otherwise, you won’t be able to download malware removal tools from the Internet. If you fins that your computer is infected with this bogus and very annoying program, then please follow the removal instructions below.
