Keeping your computer safe nowadays is very important. This is because a lot of important pieces of data can be found on our computers – we use it for work, for leisure and other things. That is why protecting our PCs safe from possible threats is a number one priority. The problem is that, with the fast pace of technology, the threats seem to be coming from everywhere.
The Internet, one of the biggest reasons that people use their computers, also happens to be the main culprit of these problems. Viruses and malware abound on the Internet, waiting for the unwary browser to stumble into them.
One of these pieces of rogue software is Antivirus Studio. To an unsuspecting user, this malware may look like a legitimate piece of antivirus software. However, the truth is Antivirus Studio is a piece of scareware that aims to frighten the owner of a system that his PC is hopelessly infected and he needs to pay $90 to clean the virus infection and for lifetime support.
This is a complete lie, though. What Antivirus Studio does is do fake virus scans to send out “alerts” that tell you your computer is hopelessly infested. It also hijacks your computer so that it can turn off your other antivirus programs and changes your Task Manager window to show supposedly “virus” processes. It also stops your net browsing by saying your Internet connection is not secure.
Antivirus Studio needs to be removed immediately and you need to be thorough; that way it won’t be able to come back. To find out how to do this, read on.
