Do you know what is Antivirus 7?
Antivirus 7 is a rogue anti-spyware application that is known to make use of aggressive and obtrusive tactics in order to achieve its goal of extortion. Just like all the thousands of rogue applications out there, Antivirus 7 too is on the hunt for the unsuspecting individual that will fall prey to its techniques of persuasion and coercion… by duping these users into thinking their computer system has been infected by numerous PC threats – and only said program is claimed to be able to ward off these dubious files and programs! Once installed, Antivirus 7 tends to employ these fake warning notifications in an attempt to notify the system user of these alleged spyware parasite infections. Don’t for one second forget that these messages are bogus and only used for the purpose of extortion.
In non-techie terms:
Antivirus 7 is not effective in its claimed task of detecting and removing computer security programs, therefore if present within a computer system, the removal of Antivirus 7 and all its affiliated components should be a priority.
