Antivirus Security Pro Removal Guide

Antivirus Security Pro is a computer infection from the Rogue.WinWebSec family of rogue anti-spyware programs. This program is considered as a rogue because it pretends to be a legitimate anti-virus program while really showing fake scan results and security alerts and does not allow you to run any program 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 Antivirus Security Pro 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, Antivirus Security Pro 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.
