Fake Antivirus Conclusion

Win 7 Security Cleaner Pro virus, among the newly released viruses, is very sneaky and nasty. Being dressed up like a legit antivirus software, it has successfully made many PC users believe that their computers are in bad situations. Even thought it looks quite similar with other legit antivirus programs on the surface, it’s actually nasty on the inside. There are ways that one can tell whether a program is a bad one or not. Take this Win7 Security Cleaner Pro for example. Usually, we will install antivirus applications that we know to provide protection for the PCs. You have given permission to these programs to be installed. However, this fake antivirus software doesn’t need your approval to install itself. Once your computer becomes weak because of some online activities, it will seize its chances and sneak inside. Furthermore, a real antivirus will not automatically start scanning processes through your  computer unless you’ve set it to do so.

By telling you that your computer has many risks and viruses, it tries to convince you to sign up for its registered version which doesn’t even exist. This is a scamming action!
