Wondering Whether to Remove AVLab Internet Security?

AVLab Internet Security is basically a new tune to an old song. It’s a new rogue antispyware program, part of the FakeRean-Braviax family. Its purpose, like all fake antispyware programs, is to convince you that it’s legitimate and trick you into buying its supposed full version. As soon as it slithers into your system, AVLab Internet Security starts doing system scans automatically every time you turn on your computer. The results can be quite startling, as the application finds hundreds of threats. What you should bear in mind is that programs belonging to the FakeRean-Braviax family are incapable of performing scans, so these results are unreliable and not to be trusted. Do yourself a favour and remove AVLab Internet Security as soon as it first makes an appearance.

How did I get infected with?

Yes, AVLab Internet Security may be a new player, but it resorts to the same old trickery. The application usually hides behind freeware and enters your system without you even realizing it. While users are going through the installation process of freeware, they’re usually not particularly attentive. In their haste to finish the process, users just agree to the terms and conditions without actually reading them. That’s why most end up with AVLab Internet Security on their PC, and who knows what else. The other methods of infiltration are also quite common when it comes to such malicious applications. They include infected spam email attachments, links to malicious websites, or false system upgrades.

Why is this dangerous?

Once AVLab Internet Security has successfully infiltrated your PC, it does a system scan automatically without asking for your permission. The results are hundreds of threats found on your computer, which your regular security program missed – Worms, Trojans, all kinds of infections, just running around your system. After it shows you the results, the antispyware tool states that in order to remove these threats you have to buy its licensed version, which by the way costs $99.95. In order to protect you, or rather itself, AVLab Internet Security blocks all of the programs on your PC and makes it impossible for you to use them. It claims that they are too dangerous to use, as they are filled with Trojans or whatnot. According to it, not even Calculator or Paint can be trusted. Do not be fooled by its tricks and do not buy this supposed full version. You would be throwing away money for something absolutely fake. Not to mention what the people behind the security tool can do with your personal information once they get their hands on it. The best course of action you could take is to get rid of the program as soon as you possibly can.
