Windows Antivirus Pro - How to remove?
What is Windows Antivirus Pro?
Windows Antivirus Pro is a rogue anti-virus program trying to capitalize on the fame of Microsoft. The trick is rather old and, evidently, rather effective. This parasite uses trojans, such as Vundo, to enter the system, although it can also be downloaded and installed manually. Windows Antivirus Pro relies on intimidating advertising to trick users into purchasing its “licensed version”, which is no more functional than the trial.
Upon entering the system, Windows Antivirus Pro begins it’s campaign of disinformation. There are a few key parts: 1) popups and fake system notifications, which claim that the system is infected and link straight to the purchase page, and 2) simulated system scans, which produce results that are spiced up with all sorts of (non-existent) viral threats. Windows Antivirus Pro shows false positives – legitimate files labeled as threats. Deleting these might not only prove useless, but can occasionally deal some serious damage to the system. In addition to these annoying features, Windows Antivirus Pro will also slow down the system.
Windows Antivirus Pro is a scam and should be treated as such: do NOT download or buy it and block it’s homepage using your HOSTS file.
