Virus Cleaner - How to remove?
What is Virus Cleaner?
Virus Cleaner is a rogue anti-spyware program – a fake spyware remover, which uses trojans (mostly Vundo or variants of the infamous Zlob) to enter the system. This parasite relies on misleading advertising to trick you into purchasing its “licensed version”, which is just as fake as the trial.
Once inside and active, Virus Cleaner will flood the user with popups, supposedly to inform him of an infection or multiple infections present on the system. An example of such as popup is as follows:
Resident Shield Alert
Accessed file is infected
File name: C:\WINDOWS\504052.exe
Threat name: Virus found Win32/Heur
Virus Cleaner also performs fake system scans, which produce greatly exaggerated or false results. In addition to all of this, it will also significantly decrease overall system performance.
Virus Cleaner is a scam and should be treated as such: do NOT download or buy it and block it’s homepage using your HOSTS file.

Manual Virus Cleaner removal
Important Note: Although it is possible to manually remove Virus Cleaner, such activity can permanently damage your system if any mistakes are made in the process, as advanced spyware parasites are able to automatically repair themselves if not completely removed. Thus, manual spyware removal is recommended for experienced users only, such as IT specialists or highly qualified system administrators. For other users, we recommend using Spyhunter or other tools found on 2-viruses.com.
It is impossible to list all file names and locations of modern parasites. You can identify remaining parasites, other Virus Cleaner infected files and get help in Virus Cleaner removal by using Spyhunter scanner.
