Internet Antivirus 2011 Removal Guide

Description: Internet Antivirus 2011 is yet another new fake security client. This rogue application is a direct clone of My Security Shield, security Maser AV, My Security Engine, Security Guard, Security Atnivirus and I’m sure I’m missing a few others.

Like all fake security clients you are going to want to remove Internet Antivirus 2011 as soon as you realize you are infected. This program is known to highjack a users browser and direct them to a sales page for this software program. They use a similar graphic user interface ( GUI ) to Windows so people might be tricked into thinking this is a legit antivirus client. However the malware is a false security client.

The scan done by this virus shows bogus scan results. The purpose of these false results is to scare and trick the user into making a purhcase. Users will also have warning pop up about thier computer being hacked or your computer being accessed by an outside source. This is yet again a trick to make you feel a sense of urgency and make a rash decision into purchasing the fake security client.
