Most of the time, this program claims that your PC is infected with spyware, adware and Trojans.
Usually, Active Antivir is advertised through the use of Trojans, fake video codecs and other malware. It is also promoted on various malicious websites that provide free online malware scanners. This program can be manually downloaded and installed form its homepage. However, this is less common situation. Very often, Trojans display fake security alerts form Windows task bar stating that your computer is infected and that your personal information is in danger. This is the most commonly used method to scare users into thinking that their computers are compromised.
Once installed, Active Antivir will ostensibly scan your computer. After the fake scan, it will list numerous infections. These infections, though, are all fake. What is more, Active Antivir will flood your computer with very annoying and dangerous security alerts. Usually, these alerts state that your PC can be easily accessed from other hosts and suggest you to purchase Active Antivir in order to activate real-time protection. However, these alerts are fake as well.
It should be already obvious that this program is a scam.

Although it is possible to manually remove Active Antivir, 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 malware and spyware removal applications.
