Antivirus .NET Description
Antivirus .NET is the next thieving assistant criminals have recruited to steal the livelihoods of careless computer owners. Antivirus .NET is a rogue scanner that imitates friendly functions to get you to lower your guard. Once trust is established, Antivirus .NET will then deliver false statements about system damage so that you’ll throw your money away buying its supposedly more potent full version. Antivirus .NET’s messages are deceitful in nature; its very presence is a threat to your computer. Don’t hesitate to uninstall it and any accompanying malware.
Antivirus .NET may also go by the slight variation name of Antivirus.NET, but those looking with a broader eye will spot strong similarities to other preexisting rogue scanners. In functionality and its preferred methods for shaking down the computer user, Antivirus .NET is all but identical to slightly older rogue programs such as AV Security Suite, System Tool 2011, Antivirus Scan, Antivirus Action, and Security Shield 2010. Only the appearance is significantly altered, to cause innocent computer users to think it’s a completely unrelated piece of software! A generalized understanding of the warning signs will let you dodge not just Antivirus .NET infections but many similar rogue infections as well.
The Problems Antivirus .NET Causes
Antivirus .NET will usually enter into the system at first through a stealthy Trojan infection, as is typical for rogue anti-virus programs. Alternately, it may also be embedded in malicious ads online, which can install the rogue anti-virus program after a simple click. Once this ‘trial’ version is installed and running, Antivirus .NET will engage in a number of actions that are both unprofessional and will directly threaten the safety of your computer.
- Antivirus .NET will disable the proper running of many different programs, including such harmless ones as Notepad. This may include actual anti-malware software that you need to maintain system security. If you notice your older security software not working, suspicion should be immediately cast on any new, lesser-known security programs you might have installed.
- Fake warnings will appear in your web browser that redirects you towards dangerous websites. These warnings imitate official Internet Explorer warnings for unsafe websites, and so one should remain alert to avoid mistaking the fakes for the real thing.
- Many different general system infection warnings will occur even if the only infection on your computer is Antivirus .NET itself! This is done strictly to create a state of terror in the user, as well as a dependency on Antivirus .NET’s supposed functions. Such warnings won’t correspond to the results given by legitimate anti-malware scanning software.
- Antivirus .NET will prompt for and initiate fake scans that in actuality do nothing for your computer, presenting a mere appearance of security. The only purpose these scans have is to nudge you into buying the full version of Antivirus .NET.
- Antivirus .NET may also cripple your Internet connection to prevent you from gaining easy access to tools that could remove it.
Other vulnerabilities and problems may also manifest with prolonged exposure to the rogue anti-virus application or related infections.
Antivirus .NET Solution
To delete Antivirus .NET, you may need to enact a multi-pronged solution. Closing down unnecessary processes via Task Manager, running legitimate scans from up to date software in Safe Mode, and downloading removal tools designed to handle this form of rogue program will usually remove the infection. If done promptly, you can expect little damage to result to your system, but the longer you wait, the greater the likelihood of a serious compromise of your machine’s integrity.
