Antivirus.NET is a totally malicious program that will try to convince you that your PC is infected. It does that for a tricky reason – by making you believe that your machine is under the risk of spyware, it scares its victims into purchasing so called “licensed” version. In order to avoid such secret intrusions, you should have the reliable anti-spyware with “full” version installed because only this variant will guarantee real time protection against this threat. Besides, make sure that you update your security software and have full virus data base to get rid of Antivirus.Net successfully.
“Full” version of Antivurs.NET is useless just like Antivirus Scan or Antivirus Action because it has been reveled to have no capabilities to find and remove any cyber threat. Though it will display numerous alerts, pop-up ads and scanners reporting dangerous malware, never fall into them because they are useless and have no informative value. So, instead of giving your money for scammers, please remove Antivirus.NET as soon as you start seeing such or similar alerts:
Antivirus software alert
Your computer is being attacked by an Internet virus. It could be password-stealing attack, a trojan-dropper or similar.
Internet Explorer Warning – visiting this web site may harm your computer!
Most likely causes:

Application cannot be executed. The file notepad.exe is infected. Do you want to activate your antivirus software now.
Once AntivirusNET manages to get inside the system, Trojans that distribute it change some Operating System parameters and set the malware to launch as soon as you reboot your machine. That means numerous annoying alerts telling about trojans, spyware and other malicious components detected on your PC. However, it can be easily predetermined that there is nothing dangerous on your machine but Antivirusnet. While operating, this scamware will also disconnect you from Internet connection, so you couldn’t download and update your anti-spyware for malware’s removal and also may disable all legitimate security software running.
As you can see, Antivirus .NET is nothing but dangerous application trying to do its best in making you believe that only its “license” will save your PC. Please, instead of giving your money (and your important personal information!) for scammers, remove Antivirus.NET. For that, you should get legitimate anti-spyware (such as spyhunter or Malwarebytes Anti-Malware) and after updating run them to find malware’s iles. If you have been disconnected from the Internet, you should check your proxy settings and also stop all processes of malware running.
Special notes to recover IE:
If your internet connection is affected, disable proxy server on your PC. Choose Tools menu and select Internet Options, Connections, Lan Settings and uncheck the box labeled “Use a proxy server for your LAN”.
