Do you know what Anti-Virus-1 is?

Anti-Virus-1 claims to be a program that is able to assist you with detection and removal or spyware but we know through various sources and tests that Anti-Virus-1 is absolutely bogus.

Anti-Virus-1 is not reliable despite whatever any website that promotes Anti-Virus-1 says. You must not ever trust Anti-Virus-1. Do not under any circumstances purchase Anti-Virus-1 because you will only be wasting your time and hard earned money.
