Being the Real 'Antivirus' to Win 7 AntiVirus 2011

Removing Win 7 AntiVirus 2011 is easier said than done even when you realize that Win 7 AntiVirus 2011 is nothing but a pest for your computer. Aside from its fake anti-virus features, Win 7 AntiVirus 2011 will also cause:

  • Hijacks on your web browser. These can block you from websites by putting up fake unsafe website warnings or advertisements, as well as force you to visit websites like Win 7 AntiVirus 2011's home site. You may also find that your homepage has been changed to a malicious one related to Win 7 AntiVirus 2011 or other threats.
  • Problems with launching and running applications. In particular, Win 7 AntiVirus 2011 may stop you from using any anti-virus software or programs related to system maintenance, such as the Registry Editor or Task Manager. The program in question may crash without warning or with a fake alert about corruption or the presence of an infection.
  • Generally lowered security such as a lack of access to Windows updates or your firewall settings. Even if these programs appear to be active, Win 7 AntiVirus 2011 may tunnel exceptions into them to turn them into worthless Swiss cheese.

As is typically the case for most types of malware like viruses, worms or other threats, Win 7 AntiVirus 2011 will corrupt your Windows Registry to place itself into your Windows startup lineup. Assume that Win 7 AntiVirus 2011 is active even if you don't see it, since Win 7 AntiVirus 2011 may be working as a background memory process.

Removing Win 7 AntiVirus 2011 is a two-step ordeal. The first step is to stop Win 7 AntiVirus 2011 from running by switching to Safe Mode or a similar controlled environment for scans. The second step is even easier – just grab your choice of reputable anti-malware scanner and run a full scan. As long as your scanner is high-quality and completely updated, deleting Win 7 AntiVirus 2011 should occur without undesirable side effects.
