» Download TRE Antivirus Removal Software

  • Any Trojans belonging to the Winisoft bot network. They are the #1 way to spread TRE Antivirus around.
  • Beware of any fake online scanners websites ! Always check them twice.
  • Be careful about those Trojans that masquerade as Flash updates required to watch an online video.

Hackers will enter or build a given website and put TRE Antivirus to work as 'drive by download'. So the next time someone is visiting such a website, the malware will be pushed as a download onto the user's computer. Without some effective security tools or if the threat is a new one, you're likely to get infected. Once inside your computer system, TRE Antivirus will create lots of fake files, then will scan your system (false scans…) and will display windows saying you have lots of infections. You will then get the TRE Antivirus window with that particular message you saw at the beginning of this document. Please, never buy that registered version of TRE Antivirus.

All those infections are but fake ones. TRE Antivirus was designed to try to trick you and steal your money. TRE Antivirus will  block many anti-virus programs  It will also block access to many security related websites.

Some symptoms of TRE Antivirus:

  • 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
