Restore your Computer from an Antivirus .NET Infection

A member of the Antivirus Scan family, Antivirus .NET is a tricky anti-spyware program which can infiltrate your system with fake security alerts and other problems. Antivirus .NET has the ability to configure itself and begin operating as soon as it accesses your system through security holes and malicious websites or downloads. It will begin conducting scans of your computer, claiming to be checking for viruses and other threats. In truth it will not be doing anything besides presenting itself as an image on your monitor. Once the scan is complete, Antivirus .NET will send out warning messages such as:

· Security Warning
Application cannot be executed. The file defrag.exe is infected. Do you want to activate your
antivirus softwarenow?

Do not let these kinds of warning scare you into purchasing a copy of the malicious anti-virus program. The infection will pop open a legitimate looking Antivirus .NET program complete with a tag line – “Protecting every second” and a list of problems found on your computer. These are false and the only course of action is to take the steps to remove the infection. This can be done automatically with a legitimate anti-virus program or manually. Talk to a specialist at smartsupport for ideas and the steps to get your computer cleaned up and back in operational order.
