Is your computer haunted with Ghost Antivirus? It appears as if it works to help you remove spyware, viruses, keyloggers, and more, but in actuality, this spyware is infesting your computer with all types of junk. This rogue software installs itself through e-mail phishing, P2P viruses, and legit-looking websites. These hackers are trying their best to trick unfortunate users into coughing up their credit cards for software that doesn’t do anything. If you’ve got this garbage software on your computer, you will need to get rid of it immediately. Hesitation can lead to system failure, or worse, identity theft.
This spyware is unique in that it will adjust your browser settings, block your programs from opening, and run countless fake virus scans, disgusing itself as official software. Ghost Antivirus starts everytime you boot your computer and tries to scare you with messages like “Your System Is In Danger! Please Register!”… Don’t fall for these tricks. Their only goal is to rob you of nearly $ 100 and harvest your credit card information. The biggest offense, of course, is that the software is completely useless.
If you try to remove this virus manually, you will be faced with the issues of your programs and task manager being blocked. You will receive threat warnings like “Ghost Antivirus Warning! Harmful and malicious software detected. Online Scanner detected programs that might compromise your privacy or damage your computer. Trojan-IM.Win32.Faker.a, Virus.Win32.Faker.a, Trojan.PSW.BAT.Cunter”
So How Do You Remove Ghost Antivirus?
To get rid of this ghastly malware you will need to either conduct a manual removal or an automatic removal.
Manual removal involves stopping the system processes associated with the virus, such as the ghostav.exe, onin.exe, services.exe, and unins000.exe. After that you’ll have to remove or rename similar DLL and LNK files. If you decide to try a manual removal you have to be extra careful, as one wrong move can result in complete system malfunction.
Automatic Removal is ‘Bob-Approved’.
I’m a computer technician, and I use automatic removal tools. Why? Because I don’t have the time to manually delete every infection. Automatic detection makes life easy for my clients, keeps them protected, and gets their computer acting new again.
