Rapid Antivirus (also known as RapidAntivirus 2.7) is new rogue anti-spyware application which shows many falsified notifications about imaginary system risks and multiple virus infections. This is the way to push user into purchasing of RapidAntivirus full version. Usually parasite comes to computer with video codec that contains trojan in it. Once trojan is in computer it automatically downloads Rapid Antivirus or other rogue application.

When parasite is on board it will display you messages that imitates system tray messages of Windows Security alerts. These reports contain information about raft number of different infections and multiple system risks. Remember that all these notifications are faked, because parasite cannot know about infection on your computer.

    Most successful software

    serach-and-destroy has been the only software to successfully detect blocks and removes spyware, adware, pop-ups. It is the only one which could defend my computer from hijackers. No other software could do it. It’s simply great.

    These instructions do not address how to stop the annoying, bogus messages that try to get you to install the software. I had to remove a bunch of files names YURA*.exe from my system32 folder.

  • Guest

    I just spent $89 for a three year subscription of this fake crap. Someone is thieving this money. How is this allowed to happen and why is this money trail not being tracked and how do I get my money back?

  • Guest

    I removed it by running system restore to 2 days prior to infection, I had to re-register some of my applications like MS Office 2003 but everything else worked fine, ran full system scan using Trend and it removed 4 infected files that were still lingering on C:… Dennis

    You will have to pay to use this program, only the scan is free, the actualy removal costs you cash. search Google for Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, its free and works great! STOPzilla is probably overall a better program, but if like me ur just looking for free go to malewarebytes!

    This malware is also getting into the MacBook mozilla, and there are no published ways to remove it on the Mac.

    Some people find it kinda iidmnitating to do the updates, mostly because they are unsure if they are legitimate update requests or not. The rule of thumb though is this the little yellow shield is Windows updates, Java, Adobe and your anti virus, more often than not that is ll the major updating you are going to need and those big four need to be taken care of!
