AVC Plus is not an antivirus, because it just can detect and scan. What drives me to me crazy is that it always pops up every 30 minutes saying my computer has threats or system is damaged severely or system is compromised by virus and do on. However, it cannot deal with those security alerts. What is it going on?

So I need help to get rid of it as soon as possible.
