Protect your computer from AntiVirus Protector

For those folks who are somewhat new to the Internet, the online world can look like a scary place. It seems like every website out there is trying to sell you their fantastic new software, as is the case with AntiVirus Protector.

From the name, it sure sounds like AntiVirus Protector is a program we could all use, but if you are like thousands of other people who have downloaded this popular utility, you may find out that there are many other programs that can do the job a lot better. Even worse, some people find that they have a problem removing AntiVirus Protector from their computer once they install it.

What is AntiVirus Protector?

Programs like AntiVirus Protector are known throughout the online world as rogue anti-spyware programs. These programs cause false positives to appear on your screen, telling you that you need this program to rid your hard drive of dozens of potentially harmful spyware programs, malware programs and viruses. Unfortunately, downloading the full version of the program, as the ads tell you to do, is not quite what you would expect. AntiVirus Protector seems to be the same program as AntiVirus Protection 3.3.

Signs You Have AntiVirus Protector

There are several things you may notice if AntiVirus Protector is installed on your computer. In most cases, one of the very first things you'll notice is the abundance of advertisements for that program and similar ones. These advertisements and false scans may appear whether you're online or offline. If you are online, you may have a difficult time navigating away from the page causing the popups. In that case, it is best to exit with the help of your Windows Task Manager.

You may also notice lagging performance on the part of your computer. From slower start-up times to a slow down in your machine's ability to move from task to task, AntiVirus Protector can make your machine seem to move at a snail's pace. Part of the problem is that AntiVirus Protector runs in the background of your computer at all times. That means that it consumes valuable system resources you could be using for other purposes.

One additional thing to keep in mind is that you will likely be redirected each and every time you open up a new browsing window to either the AntiVirus Protector website or to a website of another program they want you to buy. No matter how many times you try to change back your browser's start page, it will get changed back to the page for these programs. That is a good sign your computer has this rogue anti spyware program installed on it.

How Did I Get AntiVirus Protector?

Don't blame yourself for running into this program; it could have happened to anyone. You could have been looking at a gaming website or just about any other kind of website and simply clicked on the wrong link. In the future, try to avoid websites that use advertising from rogue antispyware programs like this one. You can also download a pop up blocking program that can protect your machine from ads like these in the future.

Removing AntiVirus Protector

You have two choices for removing AntiVirus Protector from your computer. You can download a real anti-spyware/maleware/virus program like Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (Malwarebytes has free malware removal) and simply let it scan your hard drive and remove any potential problems. Should you choose this method, be sure to get a program that truly meets your needs. These days, you can get a larger variety of features with programs like these than you once could, so talk with friends, family members, and coworkers about their anti-spyware and anti-virus solutions. Research each suggestion carefully, then choose the program that is right for you.

Alternately, you can try to remove the program manually. It is important to note that manual removal of any rogue anti spyware program should only be done by an expert.

Before you begin any manual removal of any program from your computer, it is vitally important that you back up all of your files and your system registry. Your registry is like the nerve center of your computer, and one wrong move can result in far more serious problems. If you are unable to perform a full back up, you should perform an automatic removal and not a manual one.

If you have chosen to remove AntiVirus Protector from your hard drive manually, you should start by going to the add/remove programs utility in your control panel. Attempt to remove the program there first. Although this may remove some of the program from your machine, it likely did not remove all of it and some files will have to be removed manually. The list of associated file and registry keys appears after this article. Be sure to clean your system of all parts of the program, as it has the ability to reinstall itself should you miss any part of AntiVirus Protector. Removal of this program as soon as possible is a good idea to ensure the continued good health of your computer system.
