Do you know what AV Protection Online is?
If you are looking for a powerful security tool that will be able to protect your PC against all known threats and online dangers then you will do well to steer well clear of AV Protection Online. This rogue antispyware application derives from the very same family of rogues as the notorious Cloud Protection, and was designed specifically to act as a vehicle with which to rip honest consumers off. Despite all the empty promises of AV Protection Online, it does not have the ability to detect or remove any type of threat from the system.
AV Protection Online enters the system unbeknownst to the user and will remain hidden until such time that the rogue is able to start its attack against the system. This will happen by AV Protection Online instigating a fake security scan of the system. This scan will inevitably lead to a bogus list of fake results informing the user that his system is being attacked and that he needs to pay for AV Protection Online to protect his PC. Users are urged never to pay for any AV Protection Online products, and to obliterate AV Protection Online the moment it is detected.
Shortly after this AV Protection Online will spam the user with numerous false security alerts which will state exactly the same as the fake scan. Some of these fake alerts read as follows:
Your computer continues to be infected with harmful viruses. In order to prevent permanent loss of your information and credit card data theft please activate your antivirus software. Click here to enable protection.
Malicious programs that may steal your private information and prevent your system from working properly are detected on your computer.
Click here to clean your PC immediately.
Other symptoms associated with this rogue include users being unable to launch applications on the infected PC, as well as poor system performance. Blocked Internet connections and increased erratic system behavior have also been reported. In order to circumvent these annoying symptoms enter the following activation key into the rogue:
When all is said and done the only way you will be able to protect your PC is to obliterate immediately. This can best be done by making use of a powerful security tool.
In non techie terms:
AV Protection Online is a fake security tool only out to rip you off. Destroy AV Protection Online immediately and regain control of your PC instantly.
