ScreenshotAdvanced Antivirus, also known as AdvancedAntivirus, is a rogue anti-virus program that displays a fake icon on your system tray stating that your computer is infected with spyware. Advanced Antivirus will use fake security messages to urge you to download their software and will prompt you into purchasing the full version of Advanced Antivirus. Advanced Antivirus is part of the same family of rogue anti-spyware programs as Windows Antivirus 2008, Vista Antivirus 2008 and Ultimate Antivirus 2008.

Advanced Antivirus may try to download itself by using drive-by download methods. Advanced Antivirus will also launch on every Windows startup and may display excessive popup ads. Advanced Antivirus may be difficult to remove manually because it has the ability to recreate itself.

    I also got this unwanted "antivirus" and it completely destroyed my system.
    If the Mo-F*ckers demand money for this, there must be a bank account to trace them? I have had it with all this virus shyte, I will break their legs when I find them
