Initially it might be that you will consider it as a reputable and effective solution to your PC problems, but the truth is that it is just a fake tool that is being spread for the only goal to fool users and convince them to waste money for this totally senseless tool. Again, similar to lots of other rogue tools, Antivirus Action would present tons of popup alerts and fake PC scanners to convince users to purchase its full license. You need to be aware that it usually penetrates to PC via trojans that are brought to the system as soon as one clicks certain link or *.exe file via the Internet. At the same time, it matter not where and how you got infected with the Antivirus Action Trojan. The truth is that it will initially tune your system to launch the malicious process that was initiated by Antivirus Action. As soon as this goal is achieved the rogue will begin running regularly once you launch your PC. Afterwards the tricks of Antivirus Action will become even more severe. It will then generate lots of false positives stating that your PC has thousands of computer threats. One more of its peculiarities is that Antivirus Action would block the web browser on the infected PC by showing some alerts that would redirect you to Antivirus Action payment processing web pages.
