What is Antivirus Security Pro?
Antivirus Security Pro is a rogue anti-spyware application and running it on your operating Windows system is extremely dangerous. Have no doubt that this program has been created by schemers who hope to use the fake AV tool for illicit profit. The malignant anti-spyware could have been infiltrated onto the system by other clandestine computer threats, which is why the removal of the infection could be quite difficult. Cyber criminals could also infiltrate this threat using fictitious online scanner indicating that your PC is filled with threats which you allegedly need to delete. Needless to say, if the threat has been downloaded onto your computer there are security issues which you need to fix. If you do not take care of this quickly, tens of dangerous infections could be infiltrated to run alongside the rogue. Do you know how to delete Antivirus Security Pro and other computer infections?
How does Antivirus Security Pro work?
Antivirus Security Pro comes from the same family of rogue anti-spyware programs as Attentive Antivirus and System Doctor 2014. All three of these infections share the same interface so it should not be that difficult to recognize that the program running on the computer is bogus. Unfortunately, not many PC users are up-to-date with computer malware and they do not even employ authentic, reliable spyware detection and removal software to ensure full-time Windows protection. This is exactly what helps cyber crooks to pass the fictitious computer scanner as an authentic tool. Even though the rogue lists Scan PC, Quarantine, Updates, Help and similar tools – none of them are useful to your virtual security. In fact, if you click on any of the services or try to remove the listed PC infections, you will be routed straight to the Antivirus Security Pro purchase page.
You should ignore the scanner because the listed threats (e.g. Win32/Rmnit.X and Win32/Ifnapod.X) are completely bogus. You should also stop panicking about the inability to connect to the Internet, launch Task Manager, Registry Editor and other Windows utilities. This is due to the blocked running of executable files which is meant to help schemers create malware removal issues. You should also stay calm if you notice any Task Bar notifications recommending you to activate the full version ($99.99) of the fake AV tool. Even though it is stated that your operating Windows system is at serious risk, you risk your virtual security much more by keeping Antivirus Security Pro running. Please see a few fake warnings:
Warning! Suspicious activity detected.
To keep the computer safe, the threat must be blocked.
Warning! Infected file detected.
Suspicious activity detected in the application firefox.exe similar to the behavior of the virus Win32/Conficker.X. For your security and to avoid loss of data, the operation of application firefox.exe has been temporarily restricted.
