Antivirus 360 - How to remove?
What is Antivirus 360?
Antivirus 360 is a rogue anti-spyware program – a fake spyware remover, which tries to trick the user into purchasing it’s “licensed version” by intimidating him with fake threats. The name “Antivirus 360″ is obviously an attempt to look similar to Norton 360, which is a known and respected all-in-one security tool by Symantec. Antivirus 360 typically makes it’s way into the user’s system by using the infamous trojan Zlob or by manual download. It goes under several names, including Antivirus360, and antivirus 360 protection as well.
Once inside, Antivirus 360 will try to intimidate the user by flooding him with popups and fake system notifications, which present him with a false message of infection. The parasite will try to reassure this claim by providing falsified system scan reports, which mark such files as explorer.exe and alg.exe as serious threats. After scaring the user, Antivirus 360 will prompt him to pay for the full version, which would supposedly remove the threats from the system. The only problem is that it doesn’t work at all.
Antivirus 360 is a scam and should be treated as such. Never pay for this scam software and remove it from your PC as soon as possible. You should block related sites using hosts files as well:
