Antivirus GT.


Antivirus GT is a rogue antispyware program that is distributed to computers through Win32/FakeXPATrojan virus.
Once computer is infected, Antivirus GT completely takes over the system. You start receiving tons of fake pop up messages stating about some malicious files detected that may cause security issues to your system.
Despite the fact that you did not install anything by yourself, you will soon notice a phony scanner running after each computer reboot. Antivirus GT uses this tactics in order to convince you into thinking it’s a legitimate threat remover. The scanner reports about some infections and recommends removing them by purchasing Antivirus GT. However, the files that Antivirus GT reports as infections are either your legitimate Windows programs or some non existent files. Then the program reroutes to some malicious website promoting Antivirus GT as a reputable antispyware program. The payment for Antivirus GT can be made at this website as well. Do not reveal your credit card details under any conditions there, if you don’t want to be ripped off.
Moreover,  Antivirus GT tends to hijack your Internet browser and block most of the websites. Instead it constantly redirects to the one promoting Antivirus GT. Beware That Antivirus GT is a fake application that has nothing in common with a reputable antispyware program. Please remove Antivirus GT from your system as soon as you notice any of the symptoms of its existence. 
Removal:
Kill malicious Processes from Task Manager:
  • avgt.exe
 Location of the infection:
  1. c:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\AVGT\
  2. c:\Program Files\AVGT\
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\EVA246
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\WinFD
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Browser Helper Objects\{3304F17F-732C-4AC6-BF67-DBDC8B88C11F}
Although it is possible to manually remove fake Antivirus GT, 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.
