How to Remove AntiVirus Security Pro

Antivirus Security Pro is a malicious piece of software that tries to fraudulently get money by making the user think that their computer is infected.  It will hijack your browser, and redirect you to a fake scan results page.  Unfortunately no matter what you click on you will be unable to make this pop up go away.  Having the proper malware protection on your computer is vital in preventing this type of infection in the first place.  If you don’t have any malware protection on your computer it is relatively easy for malicious software like AntiVirus Pro to slip by and take control over your system.  As long as you respond quickly and efficiently, you should be able to save your computer from further damage.

The following links are to websites that will walk you through the process of removing this infection.  I personally recommend installing a malware protection software, such as malwarebytes or STOPzilla!, rebooting into safe mode, then running the scan.

To prevent further infections make sure that your virus and malware protection software are up to date.  It’s also a good idea to keep windows updated and to back up your files on a regular basis.  I recommend running system scan once a week to fix any threats and keep your computer running at top performance.
