Windows Antivirus Adviser Virus – Removal Instructions

Windows Antivirus Adviser is a rogue anti-virus application that pretends to be a legitimate product. This particular rogue comes from a long tree of computer viruses and threats that it comes slam-packed with all the tools necessary to con you out of your money and personal information. If a pop-up window comes up out of the blue, close the window immediately before it has a chance to sway you. Much like the other rogue anti-virus programs, Windows Antivirus Adviser will use a malicious website, or exploit the vulnerability of the legitimate websites to pretend to scan your computer.

Once it falsely scans your computer, Windows Antivirus Adviser will tell you that your computer is inundated with 100s of viruses and tell you to download and install the Windows Antivirus Adviser. Whatever you do, do not install the program. If you accidentally install Windows Antivirus Adviser, it will be configured to start automatically when your computer starts.


When Windows Antivirus Adviser opens, it will pretend to scan your computer again, and then it will attempt to persuade you to buy the full program. The best thing you can do is ignore the results and the program in the first place. In fact, avoid clicking on the page, and try your best to get a clean break by closing the window. The Windows Antivirus Adviser virus does nothing to inspect your computer. It will do everything it can to slow down your computer and prevent some normal applications from running. This is all part of its glamour to persuade you that your computer is infected, but Windows Antivirus Adviser is the only thing infecting your computer and causing the programs to act out of the norm.

Just like its predecessors and forerunners, the Windows Antivirus Adviser blends in perfectly with the Windows XP interface. Windows Antivirus Adviser looks just like the Windows Explorer interface that Windows XP has. Much like its cousins, Windows Antivirus Adviser pop-up notifications appear every so often. You can recognize these programs when they pop-up because they say things like, “Error key logger activity detected. System information is at risk,” or “Firewall has blocked a program from accessing the Internet.”
