Antivirus System Pro.

Antivirus System Pro is classified as a rogue anti-spyware application because it uses misleading methods in order to scare you into purchasing this program. Usually, the rogue uses false scan results and fake security warnings.
It states that your computer is infected with Trojans, adware or malware and that you should purchase Antivirus System Pro to remove these infections. Of course, these infections are all fake and don't actually exist on your computer.

This parasite is advertised through the use of Trojans, such as notorious Zlob or Vundo. It might be also promoted on various malicious websites. Once active, Antivirus System Pro will ostensibly scan your computer and list various fake infections or security issues. It will also flood your computer with very annoying pop-ups and security alerts. Here's an example of a fake Antivirus System Pro alert:

"Windows Security alert
Windows reports that computer is infected. Antivirus software helps to protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. Click here for the scan you computer. Your system might be at risk now."

Obviously, these alerts are also fake. If your computer is infected with Antivirus System Pro, please use the removal guide shown below to remove it immediately. Removal delay will only worsen the situation, because Antivirus System Pro will download even more malware onto your computer.

Kill malicious Processes from Task Manager: 
  • sysguard.exe
 Location of the infection:
  1. %UserProfile%\Application Data\sysguard.exe
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\AvScan
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionExplorerBrowser Helper Objects{BAD4551D-9B24-42cb-9BCD-818CA2DA7B63}
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionShellServiceObjectDelayLoad "ieModule"
Although it is possible to manually remove Antivirus System Pro, 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.
