Internet Antivirus Pro Removal Instructions

Internet Antivirus Pro is a rogue antivirus program that seeks to deceive users into paying for a worthless product. It makes many promises of virus removal and protection, but it never delivers. It will infect computers through very devious means. Though manual download is possible, it is rare.

Once Internet Antivirus Pro has infected a computer, it will constantly bother the user with pop-up security warnings. It will also attempt to perform a fake scan of the system. The scan will always yield false reports of infections, going so far as to invent names of infections. This is merely a scare tactic to pressure the user into paying for the full version of Internet Antivirus Pro, which is useless.

Then, the following registry entries should be deleted:

    Internet Antivirus Pro is just another trick to take people’s money. I know it from a friend of mine, that was infected last days. When it tried to came into my computer, SpyZooka blocked it right away. I am protected by SpyZooka since last year and no problem since then. Good job!
