You almost have to wonder if the invention of the Internet was a good idea. Every time you turn around there is another virus or rogue program that has a grand old time hijacking your computer. The latest in this long list of nasty annoyances we just can’t make go away? TrustedAntivirus. Too bad the name is so deceiving. It’s surely trapped a bunch of unsuspecting computer users already.
Using misleading advertising – gee, that’s new – to draw in computer users, TrustedAntivirus tries to seduce users into downloading it and installing it onto their computers to take care of the malware and spyware that is infecting it. Okay folks, trust us when we say you are not Anakin Skywalker from ‘Star Wars’ getting seduced by the dark side of the Force. You’re Joe Blow from Albuquerque getting tricked out of your money. If you haven’t paid for this program and it’s on your computer, then you better start checking your security settings and anti-virus software because it’s found a backdoor onto your system. More that likely that back door was malware – namely a Trojan virus or pesky adware. This, unfortunately, is the standard method of delivery.
So you’ve got this pest on your computer and you can’t stop the pop-ups informing you that you have been infected by spyware. Somehow we think you figured that out with the hundred or so pop-ups that won’t close. Which, of course, is now being compounded with the big program screen with TrustedAntivirus’ name on it staring at you as it runs its falsified scan with highly exaggerated results that ends with the program telling you to buy TrustAntivirus to get rid of the problems. A clue: No!
This program is nothing but a scam that can actually harm your computer. If you were to take a look at the programs homepage, you would think that an amateur produced it. There is no company information on the site whatsoever, there is no registration info for the website and the grammar and text is horrid. It is going to cause your computer to be bogged down with more malware it invited in, it can repairs its own files and update itself, you already know you’ve got a Trojan thanks to it, and your privacy and security has been completely compromised. All very good reasons not to download the program and give the invisible owners your money.
The best thing you can do is find a reliable anti-spyware program that is current with the newest information on rogue programs and run it. If TrustedAntivirus is on your system, the anti-spyware should detect it and then go through the long and drawn process of deleting it from your system. You could do this yourself if you are an advanced computer user and have no qualms messing around the registry files. Otherwise, use a program to get it off. All it takes is the deletion of a registry file and you’ve got a mess on your hands.
