Internet Antivirus 2011 Removal Guide
What is Internet Antivirus 2011?
Internet Antivirus 2011 is a rogue anti-spyware program that fails to keep the machine really secure
Internet Antivirus 2011 is promoted mostly through the use of fake online scanners and infected websites. Once installed, this rogue program will run a fake system scan without your permission and then will state that your computer is infected with trojans, worms, and other viruses. The program will then prompt you to buy the full version of the program to remove found malware and ensure system protection against other threats. However, you shouldn't purchase this rogue program because even the paid version of the tool cannot find or remove infections on the machine. Once you pay for the licensed version, it simply removes the list from scan results.

How to prevent from getting rogue antispyware
Choose a proper web browser and improve your safety with a VPN tool
Online spying has got momentum in recent years and people are getting more and more interested in how to protect their privacy online. One of the basic means to add a layer of security – choose the most private and secure web browser. Although web browsers can't grant full privacy protection and security, some of them are much better at sandboxing, HTTPS upgrading, active content blocking, tracking blocking, phishing protection, and similar privacy-oriented features. However, if you want true anonymity, we suggest you employ a powerful Private Internet Access VPN – it can encrypt all the traffic that comes and goes out of your computer, preventing tracking completely.
Lost your files? Use data recovery software
While some files located on any computer are replaceable or useless, others can be extremely valuable. Family photos, work documents, school projects – these are types of files that we don't want to lose. Unfortunately, there are many ways how unexpected data loss can occur: power cuts, Blue Screen of Death errors, hardware failures, crypto-malware attack, or even accidental deletion.
To ensure that all the files remain intact, you should prepare regular data backups. You can choose cloud-based or physical copies you could restore from later in case of a disaster. If your backups were lost as well or you never bothered to prepare any, Data Recovery Pro can be your only hope to retrieve your invaluable files.
