We do consider the site www.systemcare-antivirus.org as threatening for your system. Why is it so? Because this site is associated directly with System Care Antivirus – the rogue security application that first has been noticed on Monday 8, 2013. We published the article about this hoax and how dangerous it is. If you have this scam on your system you surely need to immediately get rid of the hoax and ignore the offers of this malware to purchase its license.

If you don’t know how the site of System Care Antivirus looks like then here is the screenshot of it:

www.systemcare-antivirus.org

But the problem is that there are two different antiviruses bearing such name. The rogue is called System Care Antivirus 3.7.32 whereas the real one has the same name with 2.7.0 at the end of its name, instead of 3.7.32. Why is it so? The thing is that this trick was in advance planned by the malware makers, the authors of the rogue. They trick victims into buying the hoax, and when the payment is done the rogue is being replaced by the relatively clean application, 2.7.0. This was probably done for the purpose of creating good impression in the eyes of the banks that arrange payment processing for the rogue security application. Yet, the availability of clean antivirus with the same name doesn’t make any difference and doesn’t whitelist this site. We do consider it as dangerous because it promotes the rogue security program and tricks users into wasting their funds. This is not a fair practice of doing business.

If you have System Care Antivirus 3.7.32 on your system it’s surely time to remove it. Don’t ever buy this scam. If you don’t know how to get rid of this malware that attacked your system then please follow the guidelines below that will help you make these things accomplished.
