User Antivirus Virus Threat

Description: User Antivirus is a rogue security software application which is related to New Antivirus and like its relative, tries to trick users into purchasing its license by using scare tactics. User Antivirus gets installed on a user’s system via Trojan viruses that get downloaded through bogus websites which claim to have security scanners and along with fake video codecs. Once installed, User Antivirus disables all security software present on the system, and proceeds to load at startup. It then performs fake security scans on the system, returning false results that claim that the computer is severely infected with malicious software. It also displays a large number of fake pop-ups from the Windows taskbar, which warn the user of potential ‘threats’ to the computer. Meanwhile, The Malware constantly requests the user to purchase the ‘full’ version of the software, claiming that the currently installed ‘trial’ version of User Antivirus is insufficient to completely clean the system. However, it is important to note that User Antivirus is a fake application and therefore its so-called ‘full’ version is just as incapable of scanning or cleaning any system as the ‘trial’ version.
