Personal Antivirus, or PersonalAntivirus, is a rogue anti-spyware program to come out from the company called Innovagest 2000.Personal Antivirus is installed by a trojan, which attempts to trick you into buying the alleged rogue anti-spyware program. Once you're infected with that trojan, a fake security message similar to a Windows notification pops up saying your PC is infected with malware. This Personal Antivirus message is used to lure you into purchasing, downloading and installing their program to remove the imaginary spyware.
Removal of Personal Antivirus:
Kill malicious Processes from Task Manager:
Location of the infection:
- c:\Program Files\Personal Antivirus\pav.exe
- c:\Program Files\Personal Antivirus\PersonalAV.exe
- HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer "PrS"

Although it is possible to manually remove Personal Antivirus, 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.
