Advanced Antivirus - How to remove?
What is Advanced Antivirus?
Advanced Antivirus (a.k.a Advanced Antivirus 2008) is a rogue anti-spyware program – a fake spyware remover, which uses trojans, such as the infamous Zlob, to enter the system. This parasite is yet another in the long list of Antivirus 2008 clones. Like pretty much every other rogue, Advanced Antivirus uses scare tactics to persuade the user to buy it’s "licensed version".
Once inside and active, the parasite will flood the user with popups and fake system notifications, supposedly to "inform" him that he is infected. This information is false and it’s purpose is to mislead the user he is infected, in which case he would require an anti-spyware program to dispose of the problem. The first program the user will come across will of course be Advanced Antivirus.
Advanced Antivirus is a scam and should be treated as such: do NOT download or buy it and block it’s homepage using your HOSTS file.
