Antivirus Live

Antivirus Live is a rogue antivirus application, fake spyware removal tool that enters a computer with the help or Trojans and other malicious software.
Once installed, AntivirusLive will display fake security alerts and notifications about serious computer security threats or infections. The rogue application will also block almost all programs, especially anti-virus, to protect itself from being deleted. You will see the "Application can not be executed" warning when you launch applications. To make things even more complicated, it will hijack Internet Explorer and change LAN Settings. Antivirus Live enables proxy server for LAN and blocks security related and antivirus software websites.


 Infected Location:
  •  %WINDOWS%\sysguard.exe
  • %WINDOWS%\system32\iehelper.dll 

  •  HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\AvScan
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings "ProxyOverride" = ""
Although it is possible to manually remove Antivirus Live, 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.

After removing all these files, restart your computer and the issue will be fixed. And don’t forget to do update your Security Software, check the Firewall Settings and the Operating System and finally do a full system scan with the Security Software.
