Red Cross Antivirus is a rogue antivirus program that reports false system security threats to make you think that your computer is infected. Recently, this rogue program is being distributed through the use of the fake Microsoft Security Essentials Alert Trojan. Red Cross Antivirus is a typical rogue program just like Peak Protection 2010, Pest Detector 4.1, Major Defense Kit or AntiSpy Safeguard. Once installed, it will pretend to scan your computer and after that it will list numerous infections that supposedly can delete your important files or steal your sensitive information. Don’t worry, the scan results are false. You can safely ignore them. This also applies for fake RedCross Antivirus security warnings and pop-ups. Some of those fake alerts will state that your computer is under attack from a remote computer and that the RedCrossAntivirus has blocked a remote login attempt to your computer. Please don’t purchase this bogus program. Instead, please use our removal instructions below to remove Red Cross Antivirus from your computer either manually or with an automatic removal tool.
While Red Cross Antivirus is running, it will also block legitimate programs and security related websites. It will probably block Task Manager and Registry Editor too. Also note that you should use system restore to remove this virus. Of course, it might be an option, but usually rogue programs infect system restore points as well. If you find that your computer is infected with Red Cross Antivirus malware please uninstall it from the system upon detection. If you have already purchased the rogue program then please contact your credit card company and dispute the charges. We strongly recommend you to use an automatic removal tool to remove the rogue program and any related malware from the computer.
