Antivir Solution Pro is a rogue anti-virus application, which means that it pretends to be antivirus software, but it isn't. In actuality, Antivir Solution Pro is a scam, and its whole purpose is to scare you into paying money for nothing. Antivir Solution Pro showed up in the summer of 2010, but it is only one member of a whole family of similar rogue anti-virus programs that include Antivirus Soft, AV Security Suite, and FakeSpyPro.

How Does Antivir Solution Pro Infect PCs, and What Does It Do?

Antivir Solution Pro downloads itself onto your system without your knowledge. Reportedly, the most common method of infection is through exploit kits, which take advantage of weaknesses in Windows, Internet Explorer, Java, Flash, etc. What happens with these exploit kits is that a normal website, which normally wouldn't contain anything harmful, is hacked by an outsider and the kit is added, so the best defense against an infection with Antivir Solution Pro is to keep your Windows, Internet Explorer, and any browser extensions or plugins completely up-to-date. Antivir Solution Pro takes advantage of the fact that most people do not update their software anywhere near as often as they should.

Like most rogue anti-virus programs, Antivir Solution Pro will set itself up to run when Windows starts, and to run a fake system scan. Then, of course, it will claim that it has found some very dangerous parasites, which have to be removed, but, unlike most other rogue anti-virus software, Antivir Solution Pro will not let you know which parasites it thinks it has found. It will tell you that in order to get that information, and in order to "clean" the supposed parasites, you must buy an updated, licensed, or "full" version of Antivir Solution Pro. In the meantime, Antivir Solution Pro will prevent other programs from running, and set itself up as a proxy in Internet Explorer so that it intercepts all of your attempts to go online. Of course, Antivir Solution Pro will also bombard you with ads, warnings, and over-the-top error messages about threats it claims to detect. All of this is fake.

Don't Believe the Scam!

If you follow the prompts on the error messages generated by Antivir Solution Pro, it will take you to a website where you can pay money for its bogus software. It will not take you very long to figure out that paying that money will get you nothing because Antivir Solution Pro is a scam. Antivir Solution Pro will still run whenever Windows runs, still prevent you from using your computer, and still be a complete nuisance. Clearly the answer is not to believe what Antivir Solution Pro tells you or pay money to the scam artists who have created this malicious program.
