About Advanced Virus Remover:

As you may of already known the Advanced Virus Remover is a fake security client that tries to trick the user into purchasing the program. This program will auto start and constantly run scans showing only fake scan results. The infected computer will also contently show warning boxes and continuously try to get the user to purchase the fake security client. In most cases those who get infected will also have their desktop background image highjacked with a warning that their computer is infected. They are unable to change this image around. The image will look close to the below.

In almost every case the Task Manager will be disabled as well as System Restore and many normal Windows commands. We should also note once again that many people are unable to download security products or get updates for security clients because this virus has changed the hosts file. If this is the case then as already stated above use the Smitfraudfix tool. If you are able to download and update your security clients then we do highly recommend purchasing Spyware Doctor with Antivirus because we have proven that it works to fully remove this threat.
