Win7 AV.



Win7 AV is a rogue antivirus program that claims to scan your computer for malware and then reports false system security threats and displays misleading malware alerts.
Finally, it advises to pay for a full version of the program to remove the infections which don't even exist on your computer. Win7 AV is a typical rogue program but we have to admit that it looks very genuine. It's promoted through the use of Trojans, misleading websites, fake online scanners and fake web pages that also look very legitimate. Once installed, Win 7 AV will pretend to scan your computer and claim that there are numerous infections on your PC that can be removed only with a full version of the program. To make things even worse, it will constantly display fake security alerts.

If you choose not to purchase Win7 AV will display these fake security alerts like every one or two minutes. What is more, the rogue program will block legitimate anti-spyware and anti-virus programs. If you choose to purchase it (obviously you shouldn't do this), then you will be redirected to a pay page of this misleading application which is win7av.com. It impersonates to the Microsoft Security Essentials webpage. As you can see, Win7 AV is nothing more but a scam. Don't buy it. If you have already purchased it then please contact your credit card company and dispute the charges.
Removal:
Kill malicious Processes from Task Manager:

  • Win7 AV.exe
  • Win7Browser.exe 
Location of the infection:
  1. C:\Program Files\Win7 AV\Win7 AV.exe
  2. C:\Program Files\Win7 AV\Win7Browser.exe
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce "Win7 AV.exe
Although it is possible to manually remove Win7 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.
