Ultimate Antivirus 2008 - How To Remove?


Ultimate Antivirus 2008 (a clone of Antivirus 2008) is a rogue anti-spyware program, a term which essentially means it’s a fake anti-spyware program. This alone would not be so terrible, but then you find out it costs money – as a matter of fact, you can buy it for as much as $80. This parasite spreads the same way most other rogues do: by using trojans, such as the infamous Zlob trojan (or any of it’s clones). The user typically finds the Zlob trojan in porn and warez websites, disguised as a Video ActiveX Codec.

The Zlob plays the biggest part in most rogue scams, and UltimateAntivirus 2008 is no exception. Once inside and active, the Zlob will flood the user with popups and fake system notifications (which link to Ultimate Antivirus 2008’s homepage), claiming that he is infected and therefore needs an anti-spyware program. uav2008.com, the home of this parasite, is another tool to spread disinformation: the more gullible users are easily fooled by the exaggerated claims about spyware as well as all the statements about Ultimate Antivirus 2008. The trial version of Ultimate Antivirus 2008, assuming the user doesn’t immediately purchase the program, shows false possitives and suggests that the user purchase it’s "licensed version" to remove the non-existent threats. The licensed version of UltimateAntivirus2008 is identical to the demo version: its good for nothing except for delivering pop-ups.

Searching for any information on the company behind Ultimate Antivirus 2008 is a futile task – there is no website and contact details are nowhere to be found. UAV2008 uses an illegitimate payment system to handle purchases.

UltimateAntivirus is promoted on several fraudulent websites: uav2008.com, startpagepreview.com/security/xp/ and startedwebsite.com/security/xp/. Ultimate Antivirus 2008 is a scam and should be treated as such: do NOT download or buy it and block its websites using your HOSTS file.
