Windows Antivirus Pro

Posted: July 22, 2009

ScreenshotWindows Antivirus Pro is a fake anti-spyware application. Windows Antivirus Pro uses several misleading methods to extort money from computer users who choose to purchase a full version of Windows Antivirus Pro in hopes to detect and remove parasites from their computer. Windows Antivirus Pro is not able to detect or remove computer parasites or provide any additional security protection for a Windows PC.

It is recommended that Windows Antivirus Pro be removed before it is able to cause damage to your system by creating bogus registry entries or installing malicious executable files. Windows Antivirus Pro may be difficult to manually detect or remove because it is able to load at startup of Windows.

    Hello,
    Windows Antivirus Pro appeared on my computer a couple of days ago and I've removed it via Add/Remove programs. I cannot SEE it anywhere on my computer, but I still have it because I've tried many, many programs such as McAffee, Malwarebytes Anti Malware, Spyhunter, AVG, Avast!, and a few others. I end up deleting most of them because they stop scanning and close up. If I try opening them again, I am notified that I do not have the permission to open the program. Also, I cannot use search engines because they direct me to totally different sites.
    I've also used Task Manager to look for processes and such but I'm not finding anything. Can someone please help me remove this? (once again, my antivirus programs are closing up on me and are being hijacked; i will not install anymore. I need another method.)
    Thanks in advance

    Your help is important but one small problem is that to even find out about your program I had to use my laptop. The "Windows Antivirus Pro" virus/malware has disabled my PC to the extent that I could not access the internet to download your software. I am currently trying to manually remove the software.
