AntiVirus Pro 2015 Removal Guide

Rogue Anti-Malware No Comments »

AntiVirus Pro 2015 is a scareware program from the Rogue.WinPCDefender family of rogue anti-spyware programs. This program is classified as a rogue because it deliberately displays false scan results, fake security warnings, and prevents you from running programs in Windows. This program is promoted through fake online antimalware scanners and online exploit kits. Once installed, AntiVirus Pro 2015 will automatically perform a scan of your computer and state that there are numerous infections present. If you attempt to remove any of these so-called infections, though, it will prompt you to purchase it before allowing you to do so. As many of the detected files are actually legitimate, please do not manually delete anything that this rogue detects as it may affect the proper operating of Windows and your installed programs. Instead ignore the scan results and proceed with the rest of the removal guide.
