Antivirus Action, a new member of the Security Suite family of false security programs, is particularly difficult. It’s a dangerous rogue program that has infected thousands of computers worldwide. This harmful software infiltrates computers through spam email attachments, fraudulent websites, and bogus online virus scans. Symptoms of infection include the following messages:
Warning About Security
The application has failed to run. Infection of the xxx.exe file. Is now a good time to turn on your virus protection?[Here, xxx denotes the name of a possible program on your computer.]
Warning About Windows Security
Windows has detected a virus on your machine. Computer viruses and other security flaws can be avoided with antivirus software. To get your PC scanned, please click here. There is now a possible threat to your system.
These alerts are designed to make the user think that their computer is afflicted with a deadly parasite that is also slowing it down. When these warning messages appear on your screen, you might expect a reduction in system performance.
What exactly does Antivirus Software do to your computer?
Antivirus Action can secretly infiltrate your system, trick you into thinking a fake scanner is currently scanning it, and display bogus alert messages. After installation, it will automatically be set up to launch whenever Windows does. This signifies that the Antivirus Action is currently scanning your system and will be visible when you next log in. That false scanning window will display a long list of purported computer diseases as soon as it pops up. However, none of them are on your system, and the message is a ploy to make you think your PC is in dire straits. It also alters browser settings and blocks access to certain security-related websites. Antivirus Action is a self-protective measure.
Removal of Antivirus Software by Hand
You must terminate the process that this malicious program maintains in memory to terminate it manually. When you’re done, you must remove some registry values added to Windows when the infection was set up. Trying to track down and delete all of the registry entries and values it has added to Windows is arduous. Deleting the files and folders saved in various locations on your computer is the next step after removing the registry entries and values. These processes are highly technical and should only be attempted by professionals. However, there is a workaround if you are not an expert.
