Sirius Win 8 Antivirus 2014 Virus – Removal Instructions

Sirius Win 8 Antivirus 2014 is malware and is meant to imitate a legitimate antivirus program. However, unlike legitimate software, the rogue Sirius Win 8 Antivirus 2014 virus program invades without your permission and make your computer virtually unusable over time. Typically, users with infected computers will see windows pop up to alert them to the existence of threats or viruses on their computer, together with a prompt to purchase Sirius Win 8 Antivirus 2014 in order to eliminate these “threats.” This is a scam.

The Sirius Win 8 Antivirus 2014 malware belongs to a group of malware programs called the Braviax/FakeRean family of rogue software. These programs imitate antivirus software, perform fake virus scans, and trick users into paying money to eliminate these fake threats. The Braviax/FakeRean rogue programs can detect your operating system and customize their names to match, making them seem more believable. Sirius Win 8 Antivirus 2014 appears on PCs running Windows 8; if the PC is running a different version of Windows, such as Windows 7, the malware will copy that name and appear as “Win 7 Antivirus 2014” instead.


Sirius Win 8 Antivirus 2014 typically infiltrates the computer when users encounter an advertisement or website that falsely alerts them to suspicious malware or viruses on their computer. The user is then prompted to download a file to remove these “threats.” When the user agrees to download the file, the malicious Sirius Win 8 Antivirus 2014 program is installed on the computer. The malware may also enter silently through a website that has been hacked, exploiting software vulnerabilities or outdated applications. Once it has been installed, Sirius Win 8 Antivirus 2014 will pretend to have scanned the computer and found viruses or other threats. It will also disrupt the normal use of the computer and cause other applications to malfunction or fail to launch.

The look of Sirius Win 8 Antivirus 2014 will allow users to be misled into thinking that the detected threats are legitimate. Sirius Win 8 Antivirus 2014 will offer to remove these threats after the user purchases the software. Because the program has no real anti-virus capabilities, it cannot really scan a computer for threats or remove them, and the list of “threats” generated by the virus is fake. Paying for the full version of Sirius Win 8 Antivirus 2014 will not do anything except deprive users of their money, and entering credit card information into the malware program may create the opportunity for credit card or identity theft.
