AntiVira Av.

 AntiVira Av is a rogue anti-spyware program and it is the modified version of the rogue anti-spyware Antivirus .NET.


These type of rogue anti-spyware programs are designed to start automatically when the computer starts and they will start detect Fake infections on the computer and for removing the infections, we have to pay a certain amount to buy the full version of the rogue program.
