What is Advanced Antivirus?
Advanced Antivirus (AdvancedAntivirus, AdvancedAntivirus2008, Antivirus 2008, AdvancedAntivirus 2008) is a fake anti-spyware software related to Vista Antivirus 2008, Windows Antivirus 2008, and Ultimate Antivirus 2008. Like any other common rogue, Advanced Antivirus will try to trick you with fake system scans and scan results, as well as bogus notifications that read:
"WARNING! Attack Detected.

Other Advanced Antivirus's scare tactics include hijacking your browser homepage, redirecting you to dubious websites that promote rogue softwares. In addition, Advanced Antivirus may show a fake icon on your system tray stating that you're infected with spyware. These messages may be titled:
"Critical System Error"
"Your computer is infected"
If you're wondering how you got infected by Advanced Antivirus, it might have happened while surfing the web; a Trojan Zlob probably made his way into your computer's system or Advanced Antivirus used a drive-by download method without you knowing. Advanced Antivirus runs every time Windows is booted and it recreates itself, making it difficult to locate and get rid of manually. Stay away from this stinky pest, known by the experts as "the worst threat of this year". We'd like to add: "the worst threat of this year" so far...
