AlphaVaccine.



AlphaVaccine is a rogue security program from Korea that creates fake alerts and other inaccurate system information to swindle you out of your money.
Warnings by AlphaVaccine may imply that the only way to get your computer working right again is to purchase a license for AlphaVaccine's full version, but the true solution is to get rid of AlphaVaccine by using an advanced anti-malware program. You should also beware of browser hijacks and problems with accessing security-related programs while AlphaVaccine is active on your PC.

Most rogue security programs use a home website to market themselves, and AlphaVaccine is no exception. The AlphaVaccine.co.kr website is known to be infected with a Trojan that installs the AlphaVaccine threat straight to your PC, and so visiting this website is ill-advised. You should be aware that you don't need to download anything deliberately for an AlphaVaccine-carrying Trojan to attack your PC; in many cases, Trojans will abuse Flash, JavaScript, or other security loopholes to download themselves without your permission. 

It's of note that AlphaVaccine.com and similar non-Korean websites are unaffiliated with the AlphaVaccine threat and can be considered safe to browse. Korean websites can be recognized by the .kr suffix; you may want to increase browser security while visiting such websites to avoid possible AlphaVaccine attacks. 

Rogue security programs like AlphaVaccine are also commonly seen on independent websites that are general storehouses for applications. You can judge these websites on a case by case basis with regards to their upload security, but as a rule of thumb, remember that rogue security programs like AlphaVaccine are free to misrepresent themselves as much as they want on their download pages.
Removal:
Kill malicious Processes from Task Manager: 
  • alphavaccine.exe
 Location of the infection:
  1. %program files%\alphavaccine
  •  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\alphavaccine.exe
Although it is possible to manually remove AlphaVaccine, 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.
