The site you are trying to visit may harm your computer – fake warning

Please be extremely careful when you deal with fake anti-spyware programs like AVASoft Professional Antivirus. This hoax reports legitimate security sites as malicious. Of course, this is not so. Yet, the virus is afraid you will use powerful anti-malware applications like GridinSoft Trojan Killer that will help you remove them. So, when you attempt to go to the official site of Trojan Killer, for example, the scary warning will come up, saying that the site you are trying to visit may harm your computer. Here is what it says in details:

Warning! The site you are trying to visit may harm your computer!
[legitimate site address here]
Your security setting level puts your computer at risk!
– Activate AVASoft Professional Antivirus, and enable safe web surfing (recommended).
– Ignore warnings and visit that site in the current state (not recommended).

So, here comes the logical question. What should users do in this case when they see such a scary notification? The answer is simple, in fact. You need to choose the second option – to ignore warning and visit the legitimate site in the current state. Even though this is not recommended by the rogue, why should you listen to the recommendations of a fake anti-malware tool that are all fraudulent? AVASoft Antivirus is a rogue security program, and you should not listen to any of its bogus security alerts, warnings and notifications. Finally, to get rid of this scam, please follow the guidelines below.
