AntiVirus Protector.

 


AntiVirus Protector or Antivirus Protection is a rogue antivirus software which enters the system mostly with the help of trojans and other malware.
This program uses malicious methods such as false scan results and browser/desktop hijacking to trick you into purchasing it. Usually, the program displays fake system warnings and errors to make you think that your computer is compromised and that you should download Antivirus Protection in order to fix those problems. However, this program should be uninstalled immediately after detection, because it is just another scam that targets your money.

Once installed, Antivirus Protection will constantly scan your computer and display assumed infections. It will claim that you must purchase the full version of this program to remove found problems, because current version is able only to detect PC problems. Of course, this is nothing more than just a fraud. First of all, there is no such a thing like registered version of Antivirus Protection. Don’t purchase it, otherwise you will lose your money. If you already purchased it, then contact your bank as soon as possible. Your credit card details might be even sold to other people. What is more, this parasite will flood the system with fake pop-ups, security alerts and system warnings. The most annoying thing about these alerts is that they can’t be closed easily and will take you to the malicious web site that promote misleading products.
You may also notice that your computer works slower than usual. That’s because Antivirus Protection is always active. Another bad thing about this program is that it will hijack your Internet browser and desktop. It will change your default wallpaper to the red warning notice about spyware infection. This shouldn’t taken seriously, because it’s just another misleading method used by Antivirus Protection.
Please use the removal guide below to remove Antivirus Protection from your computer as soon as possible. Removal delay will only make your situation more complicated, because this parasite can download more malware onto your computer. 
Removal:

Kill malicious Processes from Task Manager: 
  • <random>.exe
 Location of the infection:
  1. %Temp%\[random]\[random].exe
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Download “RunInvalidSignatures” = ’1?
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\PhishingFilter “Enabled” = ’0?
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Download “CheckExeSignatures” = ‘no’
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\[random]
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Download “CheckExeSignatures” = ‘no’
Although it is possible to manually remove AntiVirus Protector, 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.
