Remove VirusBye | Virus Bye Removal Guide

Virusbye is the latest fake security client that is sweeping the web. This is a fake security client and should be removed ASAP. Like most other fake clients this one will show bogus scan results and tries to trick the user into purchasing the program. Once again DO NOT BUY THIS PROGRAM. It is fake and this is how people who make viruses make money. Those who are infected with this virus will also find that they have several other trojans installed as well. You should run a full scan using your favorite security product. If you do not have one then download a free trial of SpyHunter. Most users who get infected with this got it from a fake video client or a fake torrent download. VirusBye is promoted through the use of Trojan viruses or it can be downloaded from virusbye.net.

Some symptoms of VirusBye:

* Bogus Scan results * Auto Scans on Start-up * Warning coming out of a fake shield in the system tray * pop-ups and re-directs to the fake software’s website * constant warnings of being infected as well as false statements of other trojans

Here is what VirusBye may look like
