“Your System Is Infected!” Popup - How To Remove?

Type: Adware

The following popup is not a real threat report, but rather an attempt to intimidate the user by the rogue anti-virus program AVCare:

“Your system is infected! AVCare detected 10 system security threats on your PC. Detected malicious programs can damage your PC and compromise your privacy. It is strongly recommended to remove these threats immediately.”

AVCare uses this and other misleading popups to trick the user into purchasing it’s so-called “licensed version”, which is no more functional than the trial. Do NOT trust this popup and remove AVCare immediatelly upon detection.

  1. automatic spyware removal applications found on 2-viruses.com.

    AND why would i not believe that getting this thing is not simply funding the assholes who kick this mess off… the only process that i could believe would fix this problem is an abaolutely 100% free one

  2. Carol : Use manual removal instructions if you want 100% free.
    All of automatic removers try to earn money in one way or another, though some choose to bill companies only, others do not provide protection from new infections for free. If they get no money, then they can not afford update their definitions and improve their product. People that offer 100% free automatic removers hide something from you. For example the fact that it lacks real time protection or that it is updated couple times per month or that they install adware themselves so they earn from ads displayed to you. I have seen all these cases in this year.
    As of myself, I would try to hide my domain ownership if I would do something bad or illegal. This is not a case.
