The newest addition to the already large family of individual rogue anti-spyware tools, known as the FakeScanti family of maliciously fake computer security applications, is AV Protection 2011.

This exceedingly deceitful and incredibly deceptive family of malware products is well known for its long line of nasty scamware products that work to scam their intended victims by frightening compromised systems' users into believing this malicious family's false claims about the compromised integrity of their computer systems' security environments. As a recent addition to the lofty number of nasty rogue anti-spyware programs, which have been released by this particular family and are currently circulating the Web, AV Protection 2011 is a clone-like replica of other previously released members of this malicious family; some of AV Protection 2011's precursor family members are AV Guard Online, System Security 2012, AV Security 2012, OpenCloud Security, Wolfram Antivirus and BlueFlare Antivirus.

Anyone forced to endure a seditious attack against their prized computer system, launched by a malevolent, malware-based, bogus computer application – such as AV Protection 2011 – should know that this specific brand of computer threat is both incredibly skilled in the department of deception and exceptionally dangerous to the computer systems that AV Protection 2011 successfully manages to infect. As AV Protection 2011 has been definitively categorized as such a program, this bogus computer security product was especially designed to target and scam unknowing computer users into purchasing the full, licensed version of this absolutely useless software.

AV Protection 2011's Malicious Cyber Scam


The AV Protection 2011 scareware scam relies on manipulating its intended victims into believing this malicious rogue anti-spyware program's lies and falsehoods about their systems' security environments. While wrongfully masquerading itself as an authentic computer security program, AV Protection 2011 will generate fake security scans, bogus threat detection reports and phony pop-up security alerts on compromised systems, which are rife with lies meant to manipulate compromised systems' users into buying into the utter nonsense being spewed at them by AV Protection 2011.

An excellent example of these scareware-type techniques can be found in the particular messages that are known to appear on the pop-up security alerts that are generated by AV Protection 2011, on infected machines. Such messages are as follows:

Windows Security Alert

Please tell Microsoft about this problem.
We have created an error report that you can send to us. We will treat this report as confidential and anonymous.


Each of these nasty messages is one-hundred percent fake. They are nothing more than mere scareware techniques only meant to serve the purposes of scamming you into believing them. The malicious program calling itself AV Protection 2011 is not capable of scanning for, detecting, OR removing any kind of harmful computer security threat – as AV Protection 2011 is just such a harmful threat itself.

If AV Protection 2011 has been detected lurking somewhere on your computer system, it is important that you immediately work to procure a complex malware removal tool to annihilate this malicious security threat from your PC for good.
