AVMaster - How To Remove?


AV Master is a new rogue anti-spyware – a fake spyware remover, which uses trojans, such as the infamous Zlob or Vundo, to enter the system. This parasite relies on misleading advertising to get the user to buy it’s licensed version.

Once inside and active, AV Master will flood the user with popups and fake system notifications, supposedly to inform him of an infection or multiple infections present on the system. While this information may actually be true, AV Master has neither the ability to detect nor dispose of these infections. The point of this misleading advertising is to convince the user he is infected and therefore in need of an anti-spyware program.

There is no information about the company behind AV Master available anywhere on the net, presumably because no such company exists. AV Master is a scam and should be treated as such: do NOT download or buy it and block it’s homepage using your HOSTS file.

Automatic AVMaster removal tools

Note: Reimage trial provides detection of parasites and assists in their removal for free. You can remove detected files, processes and registry entries yourself or purchase a full version.  We might be affiliated with some of these programs. Full information is available in disclosure

Manual removal


Important Note: Although it is possible to manually remove AVMaster, such activity can permanently damage your system if any mistakes are made in the process, as advanced spyware parasites are able to automatically repair themselves if not completely removed. Thus, manual spyware removal is recommended for experienced users only, such as IT specialists or highly qualified system administrators. For other users, we recommend using Reimage or other tools found on 2-viruses.com.
