Personal Antivirus - How To Remove?


Personal Antivirus is a fake spyware and virus remover, that is a program that tries to convince you into buying it by providing fake, unrealistic data about your PC infections or by using trojans and other parasites to promote itself. Personal Antivirus is distributed by malicious infected web sites that provide fake “computer antivirus scans”, malicious software bundles, for example fake codecs, fake shareware, or are downloaded by trojans already installed in your system. In the last case, trojans in your system get a signal to start promoting rogue applications like Personal Antivirus, from botnet owners that in fact control your PC. You start seeing various popups describing grave state of your system and that you need this “wonderfull” Personal Antivirus, that is “recommended by Microsoft”. That is utter lies – Microsoft does not recommend this scamware.

After you download Personal Antivirus it will start pretending to scan your system for infections. Of couse, the infection list is already preset in such tools. You will be asked to pay for “full copy” of this scam to remove parasites detected. Though after paying you will not hear anything about their manufacturers again, except in your Bank statement. Then it will be to late to get the money back, so please do not pay for Personal Antivirus.

  1. […] sites provide free anti-malware scanners, display false scan results and then suggest downloading Personal Antivirus in order to remove these infections. Don’t download and purchase this program, regardless of what […]

  2. I would recommend using automatic tools just to make sure there is nothing left in a system. Typically, Personal Antivirus popups are a sign of serious infection with multiple trojans.

  3. Ending ‘services.exe’ causes the computer to reboot and when i try to remove ‘winlogon.exe’ it says acess denied and i’m using windows vista would that make a difference?
