Secure Antivirus Pro - How To Remove?

Type: Rogue Anti-Spyware

Secure Antivirus Pro is a generic rogue anti-spyware program – a fake spyware remover, which uses the Zlob trojan to enter the system. This parasite uses illicit advertising to trick users into purchasing it’s “licensed version”, which is no more functional than the trial.

Upon entering the system, Secure Antivirus Pro 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 be correct, Secure Antivirus Pro has neither the ability to detect nor remove these threats and should therefore be ignored. One of the popups displayed by Secure Antivirus Pro claims:

“It seems that your computer is infected with W32:Virut virus. This threat has been designed to steal money, Internet accounts, send massive amounts of spam, and commit various kinds of fraud. It is recommended that you remove this threat immediately to avoid participating in criminal activity. Do you want to remove Virut now?”

Much like any other rogue, Secure Antivirus Pro will perform fake system scans, which produce greatly exaggerated results. It may also hijack the browser and significantly decrease system performance.

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

Manual removal


Important Note: Although it is possible to manually remove Secure Antivirus Pro, 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
