Attentive Antivirus Removal Guide

Attentive Antivirus is a computer infection from the Rogue.WinWebSec family of rogue anti-spyware programs. This program is classified as a rogue because it pretends to be an anti-virus program while showing fake scan results and security alerts, and does not allow you to run legitimate applications on your computer. This program is distributed through hacked web sites that exploit vulnerabilities on your computer and through fake online scanners that state you are infected and then prompt you to install the program.

When Attentive Antivirus is installed on your computer it will be configured to start automatically when you login to Windows. Once started, it will scan your computer and then state that there are numerous infections present. If you try to clean these infections, though, Attentive Antivirus will state that you first need to purchase a license of the program before being allowed to do so. In reality, none of these files are infected or even exist on your computer, so please ignore the results and do not purchase the program.
