How To Remove AVG Antivirus Enhanced Protection Mode Virus – Virus Removal



AVG Anti-virus Enhanced Protection Mode Virus is a malicious virus infecting computer users who are running Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7 operating systems with AVG Anti-virus antivirus software. If you are seeing the red AVG Anti-virus Enhanced Protection Mode window below, then you are infected with this virus.

This virus has been infecting computer users through a fake Flash update. There may be even more distribution channels. It is recommended that you do not update Adobe Flash unless the update is coming directly from Adobe corporation. The social website Facebook has become a distribution channel for this virus. Users reported that they were infected after attempting to download a video on Facebook.


Two of the identified file names are 1_016.exe and flash-player.exe. Do not run anything that is called 1_016.exe or flash-player.exe without verifying that it is legitimate. Below is a sample of what the files may look like.



This virus is extremely clever. It recognizes that you are using AVG Anti-virus and will cloak itself by mimicking the AVG Anti-virus appearance. This is so you will still feel comfortable that your AVG Anti-virus virus protection still is ok. However, your computer is under attack in the background.


When windows launches you will see a beige window stating that the “release date of the databases” is current. The time and date on the window matches the exact date and time you logged in, proving that it is a charade and not real. This is another deceptive tactic aimed at reassuring computer users that everything is fine with their computer.
