What do you think of a program that bears the name of AVASoft Professional Antivirus? You probably believe this application will professionally protect your computer from malware exposure? Do you think it will warn you ahead of time about threat intrusion attempts? Or maybe you consider it to be an innovative security program that is worth installing? If you really think so then you’re wrong. AVA Soft Professional Antivirus is a fake anti-spyware program that is designed by hackers for the only goal of scaring users with fake virus reports and prompting them into buying the so-called licensed version of it. The very fact of infiltration of this scam onto your computer is a sign of poor level of security protection of your system, a proof of weakness of available antivirus that is already installed on your computer. If this is not so, then why did the security software installed on your machine allow this hoax to come into your system initially? This is surely a good question to consider, and it must be put to the world’s security software giants. Regretfully, the appearance of AVASoft Antivirus Professional scam on many computers these days is another proof of the fact that there’s no 100% security protection that could be rendered by security companies these days.

Speaking of AVASoft Professional Antivirus, we see the evidences that this application is the direct successor of Disk Antivirus Professional scam. It enters computers illegally, without user’s participation or even knowledge about the installation procedure taking place. Plus, while the installation is going on, the rogue modifies your system parameters with the intention of appearing each time user turns the computer on. The hoax is launched automatically once the system is booted. It starts its fake scanning of your machine and, upon termination, reports the list of fake threats and all sorts of infections. All of them are invented and not really residing on your hard drive. In addition, while the rogue runs itself on the computer, it displays the wide list of fake security alerts, warnings and notifications. Their examples are given below.
