AVG-Online-Scanner.com - How To Remove?

Type: Browser Hijacker

AVG-Online-Scanner.com is dangerous browser hijacker. It promotes rogue security tools like many browser hijackers do these days. However, AVG-Online-Scanner.com is far more advanced than majority of other browser hijackers. Once browser is redirected to avg-online-scanner.com, the website attempts to secretly infect visitor’s computer with WinSpywareProtect. The other danger of AVG-Online-Scanner.com is its name. ‘AVG-Online-Scanner.com’ sounds like it’s a website of reputable AVG antivirus and security software, but it’s not true.

Avg-online-scanner.com website promotes WinSpywareProtect, Antivirus Scanner and Web Spy Shield applications. All of them are corrupt and don’t function as anti-virus or anti-spyware. Nevertheless, AVG-Online-Scanner.com hijacker puts a lot of efforts to make people believe that they must purchase some of these softwares. It blocks users from visiting other websites and avg-online-scanner.com becomes the only one that can be viewed. The website mimics computer scan and constantly displays fake alerts about detected infections. It also shows explicit nudity pictures that are supposedly taken from visitor’s machine.

AVG-Online-Scanner.com is fraudulent and dangerous. It may download and install other malwares.
