Security Antivirus Remvoal

Security Antivirus is a rogue antivirus program from the same family of rogue software as PC Live Guard. Security Antivirus uses the time-tested rogue software tactic of trying to scare the user into buying a license for the software. Security Antivirus gets installed on a user’s system via Trojans and fake online anti-malware scanners. Once installed, Security Antivirus creates a number of harmless files on the hard disk, which it later detects as virus files during a number of fake scans performed on the system. It also generates pop-ups from the Windows taskbar, claiming that the system is under threat from viruses. Security Antivirus also gives fake warnings stating that the computer is about to be hacked by an external host. While performing all of these malicious activities, Security Antivirus repeatedly urges the user to purchase a license to the ‘full’ version of the rouge software, claiming that the currently installed ‘trial’ version is insufficient to remove the detected ‘threats’. However, it is important to remember that Security Antivirus is fake software that cannot scan or clean your computer under any conditions.
