Watch out for Antivirus Security Pro Virus
Is there a light-blue program interface on your screen that claims your system is seriously infected and then offers you to remove dozens of viruses from your PC? Congratulations. You have been infected with Antivirus Security Pro. Naturally, it is not a matter to be happy about, but in a sense it is not the end of the world, because Antivirus Security Pro is a rogue antispyware application, and we know exactly what you expect of them. The bottom line is that you need to do everything in your power to remove Antivirus Security Pro Virus from your computer; otherwise you would be in a serious trouble.
So why did I say that having Antivirus Security Pro on your PC is not the end of the world? First, Antivirus Security Pro is a member of WinWebSec group. That makes it a direct descendent of Live Security Platinum, Disk Antivirus Professional, Attentive Antivirus and other similar so-called “viruses” (although they are not real viruses). Consequently, if security experts and computer users have encountered a similar infection before, it means that it is a lot easier to find a way how to get rid of it!
Second, the main and only reason why Antivirus Security Pro Virus has appeared on your PC is money – all computer infections nowadays are created and distributed in order to generate financial revenue, it’s not just some ugly sport. However, unlike Trojans or passwords steals Antivirus Security Pro cannot “steal” your personal information in the actual sense of the word. It needs YOU to give the information away by entering the data in Antivirus Security Pro’s purchase form. So basically, as long as you don’t give away your information, the rogue cannot rob you.
However, that does not mean that you can ignore the infection. Fake scan results and constant fake security notifications are only the tip of the iceberg. Check out an example below:
Suspicious activity detected in the application firefox.exe similar to the behavior of the virus Win32/Conficker.X. For your security and to avoid loss of data, the operation of application firefox.exe has been temporarily restricted. To restore the application’s full operation, you must use the full edition of Antivirus Security Pro Virus.
This is one of these notifications that try to convince you your legal programs need to be shut down at once in order to “protect” your PC. Thus, as you can see, even if you do not reveal your credit card information to Antivirus Security Pro, if you leave the program be, it blocks your legitimate programs and little by little cripples your computer to the point it becomes no longer operable.
Here you may ask, how it would possible to terminate Antivirus Security Pro if the fake AV blocks all of your programs (including the Internet browser). The answer is always near.

I mean, why worry, if you can trust a safeguard tool to remove Antivirus Security Pro AND check for other possible infections? It’s two birds with one stone!
