Antivirus System Interface

Antivirus System is another rogue anti-spyware application that constantly displays false security alerts and scan results. Once the false security scans are complete, the rogue program prompts the computer user to register it before any of the detected threats can be removed. Antivirus System is spread through compromised websites that display deceptive security related pop ups. It is also spread through the use of trojans that masquerade as video players that are essential for viewing online content.
