Macro Virus Removal Guide

Description: Macro Virus is an annoying rogue anti-malware application that attempts to trick innocent users into paying for a software license. This rogue software gets installed on a user’s system via Trojans that get downloaded from malicious websites which advertise fake system scanners. Once installed, Macro Virus proceeds to perform endless fake system scans searching for non-existent viruses, Trojans and other malware, and generating exaggerated reports of malware present on the system which do not, in fact, exist. Macro Virus also generates endless fake warning pop-ups from the Windows taskbar, which attempt to redirect the user to a website where they are asked to pay for the ‘full’ version of Macro Virus. The same method is used to try and trick the user into paying for the ‘full’ version after every fake scan of the system by claiming that the currently installed ‘trial’ version of Macro Virus is incapable of properly cleaning the user’s system. However, it is important to keep in mind that Macro Virus is simply a fake application that cannot scan or clean your computer in any form, be it the so-called ‘full’ version or ‘trial’ version.
