The presence of Antivirus .NET on your system may be the cause of some quite reasonable amendments made by such group of malware tools. First it would change your system by creating some registry entries and inventing files that may greatly slow down your system performance. Antivirus .NET modifies your system in such a way that it will be started very soon upon each system restart. Antivirus .NET will start some fake scan process that normally takes place without your command or approval. The scanner will always report some files as malicious ones, even though they are quite reputable. Later on Antivirus .NET would try to scare you and make you believe you have certain very serious security issues due to supposed presence of many threats on your computer. Upon reporting of many computer risks and security issues Antivirus .NET will initiate many popup alerts that would state you have some serious security problems so that you could finally be convinced to pay for the registered version of this junkware. Antivirus .NET also hijacks your web browser on the compromised machine, that’s why the user is not able to browse the requested web-resources without first surfing some payment pages and false browser warnings of Antivirus .NET.

    the automatic remover worked perfectly for me. if you running windows 7 like i do, you might not see “trojankiller.exe” just trojankiller program file. go ahead and rename it “iexplore.exe” and run it. it works fine. Thanks a million Trojankiller, i was already going hairless. ‘cos its wifey’s laptop you know what i mean.

  8. camille says:

    i have the same question : where do you find those files you have to delete?

    I want to thank you for posting this, I turned my computer on to type an essay and my computer FEAKED out telling me that this antivirus.net scan came up with a rediculous amount of viruses that my normal scanner didn’t find. I went to get rid of the antivirus.net scanner (and remove it from my computer since I didn’t download it to begin with) and figured out it was a scam when I couldn’t even find it in my control pannel.

    For a little bit the directions got confusing so I had to do my best and pray that I didn’t delete any important documents. So far so good!

    I really can’t thank you enough!
