AV Antivirus Suite.



AV Antivirus Suite is nothing else but a rogue anti-spyware which will annoy you to death because of its continuous pop up ads asking to buy its fake license.
This malware just like AV Security Suite or Antivirus Soft will also apply browser hijacking techniques with a reason to interrupt into a normal browsing and then redirect victims to its fake websites also promoting AV Antivirus Suite.
Be aware of taking various “surveys”, “quizzes” and “tests” online or visiting insecurely looking websites if you want to avoid AV Antivirus Suite on your PC. Many of them are known to distribute Trojans that additionally let such malwares inside through security vulnerabilities found and finally take over the whole computer. It means that just after getting on board, AV Anti-virus Suite will start popping up every few seconds. This scam will announce that computer is dangerously infected and that only its licensed version is capable to fix all these problems found. Moreover, AV Anti-virus Suite is known to imitate system scan and also block such tools as Task Manager or even the access to the Internet. All this makes AV Anti-virus Suite hard to remove. 
Removal:
Kill malicious Processes from Task Manager: 
  • [random]tssd.exe
  • [random].exe
 Location of the infection:
  1. %Documents and Settings%\[UserName]\Local Settings\Application Data\[random characters ]\[random characters]tssd.exe
  2. %Documents and Settings%\[UserName]\Local Settings\Application Data\[random characters ]\[random characters].exe
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run “[random characters]“
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\AvScan
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run “[random characters]“
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Download "RunInvalidSignatures" ="1""   
Although it is possible to manually remove fake AV Antivirus Suite, 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.
