ACV Plus Virus – Removal Instructions
ACV Plus is another program that lets computer users believe that it can remove or block viruses from your computers. This led computer experts to categorize ACV Plus as a scareware virus, a virus that presents itself as a helpful software but in the end, will scare the users into purchasing the virus for the hackers personal gain. Aside from being known as a scareware, ACV Plus is also known to be a rogue-anti spyware program and it is a virus. The ACV Plus virus is another creation of Rogue.FakeVimes. Rogue.FakeVimes are known for their creation of computer infections.
Examples of other Rogue.FakeVimes viruses are A-Secure 2015 and Security Bytes 2015. All three viruses have made it their goal to earn money from computer users who are not aware that the installed program in their computer is rogue. ACV Plus is a threat to everyone, especially to computer users who are not familiar with what computer infections can really do to a computer and your personal information.
Once ACV Plus entered or is installed to a particular computer, it will give a false report showing that malicious software are threatening the user’s computer. ACV Plus does not stop at threatening the user with false reports. It will also lead them to pay a huge amount of money to “clean your computer” or to “remove the malware from destroying your computer.” ACV Plus will ask people to purchase the full version of the rogue anti-virus in order to “remove the viruses” from your computer.
This also leads users to submit their personal information who will then be using your credit card or will possibly cause identity fraud or even identity theft. Aside from showing bogus scan results and asking money, ACV Plus also limits the user to access all Windows applications, even if these applications are genuine. Since ACV Plus is perceived as a genuine software, it can be freely downloaded in the internet.
