How it works?

Avasoft antivirus professional

generates an identifier of about 32 hexadecimal characters, and uses this in its path and file names, for example 6F638BF02B17D979A3CB6D177B07D287.

It creates a folder with the identifier as its name in the %APPDATA% folder, into which it copies itself as a .exe file, drops an icon (.ico) file, and creates a data file (with no extension). It uses the same identifier for the file names.

It creates a desktop shortcut with the file name AVASoft Antivirus Professional.lnk

This rogue pretends to scan for malware and shows you fake warnings about malicious programs and viruses. It is designed to scare you into paying money to remove the fake threats by registering the software.

It can also close or end programs, processes and services, modify security settings, and block access to websites.

AVASoft Antivirus Professional is a fake security application and another member of the WinWeb Security family. Typically, AVASoft Antivirus Professional will be installed on a computer without the computer user's authorization, through illegal methods typically used to distribute malware. AVASoft Antivirus Professional is part of a scam that involves using fake anti-virus software to convince computer users to pay for expensive upgrades in order to remove nonexistent malware threats on their computer. If AVASoft Antivirus Professional is installed on your computer, it is important to remove AVASoft Antivirus Professional immediately with the help of a reliable anti-malware application.

Removing AVASoft Antivirus Professional can be difficult because this fake anti-virus program has several components that AVASoft Antivirus Professional uses to defend itself. For example, AVASoft Antivirus Professional can block computer users from running certain applications or opening certain files. This means that most computer users dealing with an AVASoft Antivirus Professional infection will not be able to access their web browser, security software or Windows components like the Task Manager and System Restore. When the computer user tries to open any of these components, AVASoft Antivirus Professional will display a message claiming that the file is infected and then claim that it has been blocked for the computer user's own protection.
