What is AVASoft Antivirus Professional?
AVASoft Antivirus Professional is a fake antivirus program, a clone of Disk Antivirus Professional. It is definitely a virus and should be removed as soon as possible. AVASoft Antivirus Professional is known to be very intrusive, and usually gets installed to your computer through various browser vulnerabilities and may also come bundled with some software packages.
The virus disguises itself as a legitimate antivirus program, seemingly performs a computer scan and always displays hundreds of threats found on your computer. However, the only threat here is AVASoft Antivirus Professional itself, also known as AVASoft Professional Antivirus. Once the app is running, it will also hook on your web browser and constantly displays its' warnings whenever you try to open any webpage. It also monitors all processes running on your system and displays additional warnings with the name of each new process launched, stating that the process is infected.
In order to make the removal of AVASoft Antivirus Professional more difficult, it disables and stops Windows Security Center Service, thus replacing official Windows security warnings with its' own.
We highly recommend that you remove AVASoft Antivirus Professional as soon as possible either by following our manual instructions, or by using a dedicated software that will do the job for you automatically.
