Removal Instructions for Contraviro

There are a lot of scams out there on the Internet and Contraviro is one of them. This program is a rogue security application designed by cyber criminals to appear like a legitimate program. It sneaks onto a computer through a Trojan horse without the user’s knowledge or permission. Once it has been installed, it will generate fake security alerts and perform fake system scans that produce false results. These results will be used to scare the user into buying the full version of the program.

The full version of Contraviro is a complete waste of money. It won’t remove any real threats that may exist, nor will it prevent future infections from invading the computer. Instead, it will actually download other malware and a Layered Service Provider that will monitor all of the user’s online activities. Therefore, if this rogue has infected your computer you should remove it immediately. In order to remove it manually, start by killing the following processes:Type : Rogue security application

    Everything you say here is true. I never installed such a thing and it is trying to get my money. There is no way to get rid of it if you are not very good at computers, but that’s why this program exists. You helped me so much! Thanks!
