What is System Care Antivirus?
System Care Antivirus is a fake antivirus program, a clone of Disk Antivirus Professional, AVASoft Antivirus Professional and the likes. It is considered to be harmful software and should be immediately removed either manually or by following our simple instructions.
System Care Antivirus is known to be extremely intrusive. Cyber criminals usually post comments throughout the web containing links, which once clicked may bring the payload of malware onto your computer. Also, exploited legitimate websites may automatically force your browser to download the installer, and once it's been launched, it will automatically create shortcuts of System Care Antivirus on your Windows Desktop as well as in the Start Menu. Besides, it will run itself on system startup and hijack your internet browser to show seemingly legitimate warnings while you browse the web.
The virus blocks most apps and browsers from launching except Internet Explorer. Once you launch a program, you may see a System Tray notification such as the following:
Application cannot be executed. The file slui.exe is infected.
Please activate your antivirus software.
The activation of System Care Antivirus, obviously, will not remove any of the bogus infections the rogue has found, nor the fake antivirus itself, even if it indicates the successful removal upon activation.
An immediate removal of System Care Antivirus is highly recommended by following either our simple automated instructions or manual removal guide, if you consider yourself an experienced PC user.
