Green AV.


Green AV is a rogue security application that reports false or exaggerated system security threats to make you think that your computer is seriously infected.
The rogue program then asks to purchase a registered version of Green AV to remove threats that don not really exist. This misleading application is just another variant of Green Antivirus 2009 malware. Do not purchase it! Uninstall Green AV from the system as soon as possible.


Green AV is usually promoted through the use of Trojans, fake online anti-malware scanners and other misleading websites. The rogue program is promoted on green-av-pro.com and green-av.com. Please stay away from these websites. It uses Microsoft Windows XP graphical user interface elements, logos, icons to make it look more reliable and reputable. Once installed, the rogue program will display fake security alerts claiming that your PC is under attack or that is seriously infected. These fake security alerts look like those legitimate from Widows Security Center. This parasite may also impersonate Windows Security Center and report that anti-virus protection is disabled.

Removal:

 Infected Location:
  • C:\Program Files\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\GAV\gav.exe
  • C:\Program Files\GAV\gav.exe
  •  HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\GAV
  •  HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AppID\WStech.DLL
  •  HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\WStech.WStechB
  •  HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\WStech.WStechB.1
  •  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\GAV
Although it is possible to manually remove Green AV, 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.
