Advanced Virus Remover is a rogue antispyware program that looks very much like a decent security application. It has been created to look presentable so that it could steal hard-earned money from unsuspecting computer users all over the world. Advanced Virus Remover does not live up to its name, and it is this program that you need to remove, if you want to continue working with your computer without any difficulties.
This program has many ways to enter your system. It can be distributed through fake pop-up advertisements that, for example, claim that you have won a cruise ticket to the Caribbean. One click through that kind of ad and you are infected with Advanced Virus Remover. Also, the rogue can be promoted via Trojan infections and fake online antimalware scanners. Whichever way this rogue manages to get into your system, you have to understand that it is a serious infection and you need to deal with it as soon as possible.
This rogue is programmed to display various infections appearing in your computer even if the only threat currently damaging your system is none the other but Advanced Virus Remover. The rogue will perform a fake system scan and will “find” a lot of Trojans and worms in your system. Then it will offer you to remove the threats if you unlock the full version of the program. For that you would need to give away your name, address, credit card number, expiration date and the CVV2 code to third parties. With that information at hand, the criminals behind Advanced Virus Remover would be able to access your bank account.
If you want to avoid this, you need to ignore the scan results point blank. The same should be applied to all the fake security notifications you receive from Advanced Virus Remover. Here is an example:
Continue working in unprotected mode is very dangerous. Viruses can damage your confidential data and work on your computer. Click here to protect your computer.
This message has no grounds as the rogue does not have an ability to detect viruses and other type of malware. Remove Advanced Virus Remover from your computer the moment you have a chance to. Use a reliable antimalware tool to do so, if you do not know how to terminate this program manually. The faster you get rid of this rogue, the sooner you will be able to continue working with your machine in the previous fashion.
