Please stay away from these websites. It uses Microsoft Windows XP graphical user interface elements, logos, icons to make it look more reliable and reputable. Once installed, the rogue program will display fake security alerts claiming that your PC is under attack or that is seriously infected.

“Your PC is not protected
Security center reports that 'Green AV' is inactive. Antivirus software helps to protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. Click here for the suggested actions. You system might be at risk now.”
