Green AV - How To Remove?


Green AV is a rogue anti-virus program – a clone of the fake virus remover Green Antivirus (Green Antivirus 2009). This parasite typically relies on trojan Vundo to enter the system, but can also be downloaded and installed manually. Green AV is no different than any other rogue in the sense that it uses misleading advertising to trick people into purchasing it’s so-called “licensed version”.

Green AV has the quite possibly most ridiculous premise for a security application in the history of computer security as such. Get this:

Fighting viruses, spyware, malware is not only a question of security. Spyware actualy abuses your computer, overuses CPU speed, network bandwidth, makes your PC run slow. As a result you start consuming more power, working longer, think of replacing your PC with a new one which brings more unrecyclable wastes (many computer’s parts contain toxic wastes).

Yes, Green AV is fighting the good fight against pollution, global warming and the slow death of fluffy bunnies. In an age where green is the color of everything righteous it should come as no surprise, that some people want to cash in on the trend.

Image aside, Green AV is nothing special – it floods the user with popups and fake system notifications, claiming his system is infected and in need of Green AV to take care of the problem. This information may be correct, but only coincidentally so – Green AV has neither the ability to detect nor remove any threats. In addition to the annoying flood of popups, this parasite performs fake system scans, which produce downright false results, usually by marking legitimate files as trojans, worms, spyware, adware – you name it.

No benefit can come of downloading Green AV, the only things you’re sure to get from the whole ordeal are popups and a system that’s slow as a snail. Green AV is a scam and should be treated as such: do NOT download or buy it and block it’s homepage (, using your HOSTS file.
