Clean Virus

Posted: July 19, 2010

Clean Virus Description

Clean Virus, also known as CleanVirus, is a rogue anti-virus program from Korea. The unusual interface Clean Virus uses is paired with high praise for its own threat-removal features, but Clean Virus has no security functions that benefit your PC. Keeping Clean Virus on your computer instead of quickly deleting Clean Virus may result in various problems, such as malfunctioning applications, reduced security settings and a hijacked web browser. You should never purchase Clean Virus; giving the criminals behind Clean Virus your credit card number is only an invitation for further abuse!

Clean Virus is Not Clean as It Advertises

In many ways, Clean Virus is unusually restrained, as far as rogue security programs go. However, Clean Virus is nonetheless a non-negligible threat to your PC security. You may get infected by Clean Virus from visiting a dangerous website, a website that runs insecure advertisements or by downloading a compromised file from a P2P network.

Clean Virus is simple to detect, since Clean Virus uses a Korean language interface for all portions of its interface, even including the installation process. The only exception is Clean Virus' name, which is presented in English next to a trio of orange, blue and green monitors. The rest of Clean Virus's interface is also unusual, using graphical displays similar to sound waves and engine meters.

Once Clean Virus gets to work, the main feature you'll notice is Clean Virus creation of fake system alert pop-ups. These pop-ups may appear frequently enough to harm the operating speed of your computer – and even if you can read Korean, you should notice that the information Clean Virus offers is fake!

Clean Virus wants you to give Clean Virus your money and credit card number in a fraudulent security software registration process, but you should disappoint the criminals behind Clean Virus instead of wasting your cash. If you do try to purchase Clean Virus before realizing that Clean Virus is a threat, you can dispute the charge calling up your credit card company.

How to Clean Yourself of Clean Virus

Clean Virus is highly unusual for a threat in that Clean Virus keeps most of its files in ordinary locations like your Program Files and Documents and Settings folders. You may even find an uninstaller executable! It's suggested that you don't try to use this uninstaller or delete Clean Virus without help, however, since removing Clean Virus in this fashion may be incomplete or cause other system problems.

To remove the executables, .dlls and other files created by Clean Virus, you should switch to Safe Mode with Networking. This stops Clean Virus from launching itself, which allows you to download any new programs or updates you may need.

After that, a simple but thorough scan of your entire system with the right anti-malware scanner should get Clean Virus out of your life for good. Be certain to wait until the entire scan is finished, since Clean Virus may come with other infections like Trojans. If your scanner doesn't detect or remove Clean Virus, you may need an update before scanning – most anti-malware software will provide threat definition updates for free.
