Windows AV Software.



Windows AV Software is the newest fake system optimizer in the long series of programs going back through Windows Express Help, Windows User Satellite, Windows Problems Solution, and beyond
These scammers dress their badware up to look like real Windows programs, and they have no qualms about telling a huge pack of lies in an effort to get you to pay for their phony software. Don’t buy any of it.
Windows AV Software spreads through the web as a trojan, and once it gets into your computer it basically takes over everything. It alters your registry, hijacks your browser, and send a lot of Windows AV Software pop-ups showing fake system scans that invariably say your computer is full of programs. The idea is to get you to provide your credit card info. Not a good idea.
As you can see, Windows AV Software was created to scare you into thinking your computer has a severe security problem so that you will then purchase this program. For no reason should you purchase Windows AV Software, and if you already have, you should contact your credit card company and dispute the charges stating that the program is a computer infection. 
Removal:

Kill malicious Processes from Task Manager: 
  • <random>.exe
 Location of the infection:
  1. %UserProfile%\AppData\[random].exe
  •  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options\afwserv.exe "Debugger" = 'svchost.exe'
  •  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options\avastsvc.exe "Debugger" = 'svchost.exe'
  •  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options\avastui.exe "Debugger" = 'svchost.exe'
Although it is possible to manually remove Windows AV Software, 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.
