Advanced Virus Remover is a fake anti-virus program, which uses malicious tactics to spread and make a profit. This parasite typically enters the system by using trojans like Zlob and Vundo, but has also been known to come bundled with all kinds of freeware. Upon entering, it will try it’s best to scare the user into purchasing it’s “full version”.
Advanced Virus Remover is not called “scareware” for nothing: this bastard of a program unleashes a flood of popups upon the user, supposedly to inform him of an infection present on the system. Advanced Virus Remover supports this claim with fake system scans, which identify benign files, created by the program itself, as threats. The point of such tactics is to trick the user into thinking he is infected and therefore in need of an anti-virus program. Not just any anti-virus program, of course. As if all of that doesn’t suck enough, having Advanced Virus Remover on the system will result in a significant drop in overall efficiency.
Advanced Virus Remover is a scam and should be treated as such: do NOT download or buy it and block its homepage (advancedvirusremover.com) using your HOSTS file.
