Remove System Care Antivirus

andy | April 9, 2013

System Care Antivirus is a dangerous and fake antispyware application that is classified as rogue (fake AV). Being the direct successor of AVASoft Professional Antivirus scareware, it has the same evil mission – to scare users into wasting their funds for an entirely helpless and useless software. Keep in mind that this application doesn’t act as a legitimate security tool. First of all, its infiltration is not authorized by users. This means that the program installs itself automatically without your permission or even knowledge about this fact. When successfully implanted, it begins to scare users a lot. It begins to display a lot of fake security warnings, alerts, notifications an popups during the fake scan initiated by it. In fact, the hoax launches itself automatically together with every system startup, and immediately it begins to arrange the fake scan. Upon its completion many bogus threats are reported.

The entire multitude of fake security alerts produced by System Care Antivirus malware should be completely ignored, no matter how scary or convincing they might seem to be. The reason why this scam reports all such unreal infections is because it attempts to make you believe your PC is in a terrible dangerous condition. The badware then asks you to buy its so-called licensed version to get rid of those bogus threats, but what is the purpose of buying this hoax if it only reports unreal infections? In fact, when real viruses do attack your system, System Care Antivirus will not be able to timely warn you about them or get rid of them completely. Thus, it is quite obvious that System Care Antivirus is the unwanted, helpless and, moreover, a really dangerous application that may bring other more serious infections into your system, instead of protecting you from them.

Buying System Care Antivirus hoax is a serious mistake, because in this case you will most probably never get your money back. Hackers who developed this junkware are so stingy that they will never be kind or merciful towards users who were deceived by them. So, hopefully, you will never make such a serious mistake of trusting into the deceptive statements and offers of System Care Antivirus fake antispyware. If you have mistakenly paid money for its useless license (activation code), please dispute your charges immediately via your authorized bank or other financial institution.
