Antivirus .NET is a variant of AntiVira AV, Antispyware Soft and AV Security Suite which are considered to be among the hardest fake antivirus products to remove in recent history. Antivirus .NET uses the same tactics as its predecessors and is very good at eluding detection.
To put the pressure on you to buy the full version, Antivirus .NET blocks access to almost all websites and starts opening porn websites such as adult.com, porno.com and porno.org, and occasionally viagra.com. Antivirus .NET continually harasses the user with numerous warnings and messages saying that their computer is infected and is under attack from hackers. Antivirus .NET is commonly installed by a trojan or manually mistakenly downloaded from one of many fraudulent Fake Scanner Sites.
