Avasoft Virus

What is Avasoft Virus?

Cyber criminals behind the infamous WinWebSec family of fake anti-virus software have released a new threat known as Avasoft Virus or AVAsoft Antivirus Professional. The malicious application follows the footsteps of such clone infections as Disk Antivirus Professional, System Progressive Profession and Live Security Platinum. The malicious application can be dropped onto the computer by existing Trojans or through such drive-by download vulnerabilities as spam email attachments or misleading advertisement. According to Anti-Spyware-101.com security experts, the malicious rogue could exist within your PC for a long time before you notice its activity. All in all, if you have noticed an unfamiliar spyware scanner with this name, you should not hesitate about its removal. How should you delete Avasoft Virus? Continue reading to find out.


Why should you delete Avasoft Virus?

The deceitful rogue anti-spyware looks like a genuine program which is available in such widely-spoken languages as English, French and German. If the deceitful scanner has already reported various worms and Trojans, which you allegedly need to remove, running on the PC, it is likely that there are other notable symptoms as well. For example, you are likely to face Internet connection issues, removed access to access Registry Editor and Task Manager, or the running of many executables:

Application cannot be executed. The file cmd.exe infected.
Please activate your antivirus software.

Needless to say, you are most likely to focus all of your attention onto the misleading computer scanner and the bogus notifications popping up from the Task Bar. You will not be able to remove these from the desktop; however, you should pay no attention to them. These are the attributes that schemers will use to convince you to pay money for a supposedly irreplaceable malware detection and removal tool. Please ignore any recommendations to purchase the full version of this fake product because it will not help you delete real computer infections. Please see a few misleading notifications:
