Do you know what AntiVirGear is?
AntiVirGear is a fake anti-spyware program which downloads and installs itself onto your PC without your knowledge or consent, through a Trojan called Zlob. AntiVirGear will try to mislead you with constant false pop-ups and system alerts into buying the full version of the program in order to remove the supposed threats. When the icon that has a constant pop-up in the system tray is clicked, downloads and then installs AntiVirGear. AntiVirGear detects any malware in your machine and then requires you to go to AntiVirGear's website to purchase the rogue software. AntiVirGear may also change your settings and make them appear as if the network's administrator has changed them.
AntiVirGear is known to be a clone of VirusProtect Pro. Home site for the rogue is www.Antivirgear.com
