360 Protection Demands More than Antivirus 360

If you haven't paid much attention to computer security in the past, it may be time to make a 360 degree turn in your habits. Unfortunately, programs like Antivirus 360 aren't the best way to go about the task. If this problem program is installed on your computer, removing it is the only option you should consider.

Defining Antivirus 360

Antivirus 360 is a rogue security application. The point of programs like this is to mislead users, making them think that purchasing the full version of the program is the only way to remove internet pests from their system. Fortunately, there are lots of reputable security solutions, but removing Antivirus 360 is the only way to go in any scenario.

It is usually installed on your computer with the help of the Vundo Trojan. This is often disguised as a video codec.

If you do have Antivirus 360, you will probably notice the problem right away. One of the first things you're likely to see is scans of your computer. This program is designed to look a lot like Norton 360 right down to the scan window. In the top right corner, you'll see the Antivirus 360 logo, a small shield with the traditional Windows color scheme. The top left of the screen says "System in Danger." Along the right side of the screen, you'll see a number of buttons including ones for System Scan, Security, Privacy, Update, Settings, System Status, Help, and Registration. There, you'll also find a button for full real-time protection. Clicking it will lead you to the Antivirus 360 website. The rest of the window is devoted to the actual scan, and you'll not only see a progress bar, but also a list of the pests Antivirus 360 has found on your computer. It's really important to remember that Antivirus 360 didn't actually find any of these pests on your machine. Some of them do look quite menacing, and you may even have heard about some of these programs in the news. The program is designed to find the same results for every computer, and simply removing Antivirus 360 will remove any problems you may have. What's slightly more concerning, though, is that some of the files this particular scanner displays are files that your computer actually needs to run, so it's pretty important that you don't attempt to manually delete a file just because the Antivirus 360 scanner found it on your computer.

In addition to scans of your computer, you are also likely to see various security warnings on your computer. These can take a number of different forms. One of the most popular forms for these security warnings is a pop up advertisement that is designed to look like a Windows Notification Balloon. This advertisement will come from your system tray, the area that is near your computer's clock. In almost all cases, it will say something like Security Alert or Spyware Infection Found. Choosing to click on the advertisements only takes you to the home page for this particular program. The other typical ad type you might see looks like a pop up advertisement. These can be displayed even if you're not online. It, too, may say something like "Security Warning." Clicking on the ad will lead you to the home page where you'll be prompted to buy the actual program and install it.

Removing Antivirus 360

If you do have Antivirus 360 on your computer, your best bet is to get rid of it at your earliest convenience. Relying on your current antivirus software to eliminate it, though, is not your best option. Antivirus 360 isn't technically a virus, so your current software probably cannot do anything to change the program. You do, though, have two good options.

Perhaps the easiest and most effective method to remove Antivirus 360 is to eliminate it with the help of a good antispyware software solution. There are lots of them on the market today, and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (Malwarebytes has free malware removal) is one of your many great options. Once you've found one you like, just install it on your computer and use the scanner function. It will immediately remove Antivirus 360 from your computer. Keeping this software updated and using it to scan your computer on a regular basis will help keep your machine safe from other problem programs in the future.

Your other option is to manually delete the program from your system. It is, however, important to note that this can be a difficult task. Novice or inexperienced computer users probably shouldn't use this method. You'll not only have to find and delete all of the associated program files, but you'll also have to eliminate a number of registry keys when you remove Antivirus 360. Missing files as you try to manually uninstall the program or making a mistake as you work within your computer's registry could result in additional problems. If you do wish to manually remove the program, a list of associated files and registry keys appears after this article.

Antivirus 360 is not the best security software to choose. Removing it at your earliest convenience is the only way to stay safe.

As a precaution we recommend double checking your system with SpyHunter.
