Antivir and its Common Tricks

Antivir is self-advertised software. Users are either lured to download and install it or trojan technique is applied to drop Antivir adware. The adware shows a front window entitled Personal Guard marked trial version at the right upper corner. There is a scan process displayed within that window, but no actual scan is performed by Antivir. Names one may see in the crawl line of the scan are the imaginary names, which have never been the names of infections actually present at the host system. Another common trick is the alerts displayed at the desktop toolbar. Users take these alerts for those generated by their systems. These alerts indirectly prompt to purchase Antivir. Remove Antivir adware instead of purchasing it or ignoring it. You cannot get rid of Antivir completely simply uninstalling it. To uninstall Antivir may simply be not an option or else main files are retained in spite of that rogue is uninstalled. Click here to perform removal of Antivir usng Spyware Doctor.
