AV AntiSpyware - How To Remove?


AV AntiSpyware is yet another rogue anti-spyware program, and an obvious one at that (calling your anti-virus/anti-spyware program “Antivirus Antispyware” is a little misguided). This parasite uses the Zlob trojan, which is usually camouflaged as a video codec online, to enter the system. The point of this rogue scam, like any other’s, is to trick the user into purchasing AV AntiSpyware’s “full version” by feeding him misleading information.

Upon entering the system, AV AntiSpyware begins it’s campaign of deception by flooding the user with popups and fake system notifications, all claiming that his system is infected and urging him to purchase the AV AntiSpyware software to take care of the problem. Another instrument AV AntiSpyware uses are fake system scans, which return falsified reports and browser hijacking. As if that’s not enough, AV AntiSpyware will also significantly decrease system performance.

AV AntiSpyware is a scam and should be treated as such: do NOT download or buy it and block it’s homepage using your HOSTS file.

Thus, manual spyware removal is recommended for experienced users only, such as IT specialists or highly qualified system administrators.
