Win 7 Antivirus Pro 2013

Malware removal

Win 7 Antivirus Pro 2013 is a fake antispyware program that reports phony infections on your PC in an effort to make you pay for a full, registered version of the program that doesn’t exist. So before you go any further, just know that nothing this program tells you is true. It shows the same fake alerts and warnings to everyone and does not actually have the ability to scan your computer for viruses.

If someone using your computer has been surfing through some bad web neighborhoods lately, that’s probably why you have this thing on your PC. It gets around the web as a trojan attached to different types of downloads, and it is also promoted via misleading websites that go up for a couple of days and are quickly taken down. The people behind pests like Win 7 Antivirus Pro 2013 are very good at this stuff, so you can’t be blamed for letting this thing get on your computer.

Of course, if you never want to deal with this sort of problem again, all you have to do is download an install an actual antivirus program. Something like SpyHunter can stop the infection before it takes root, and never even have to know you’ve been exposed to it. But as for the matter at hand, I’ll take you through the manual removal instructions for Win 7 Antivirus Pro 2013.

Note: In any files I mention above, “%UserProfile%” is a variable referring to your current user’s profile folder. (Not an iEuphemism for muth@fugg@#*!@.)
