Apparently Fake Antivirus





Ircher
Apparently,I get this pop-up about Trojans being detected, so naturally, since I didn't have an active one, installed the anti-virus. Now then, everything went haywire until recently, when Windows Defender started (after its stopped), some Trojans apparently originated from that location. NEVER BUY or USE SYSTEM CARE ANTIVIRUS!!

Well, there are many fake applications, anti-virues, anti-malwares or how do one would call it. TO avoid them, just simply download apps from sources that have many visitors and are well known for their good reputation.

Also, all the crap stuff installed together with some applications is so irritating... all the toolbars and so on. I am careful while installing new programs so I don't have such useless toolbars or advertising apps on my Windows but if someone would not care about it, their PC can get slowed down and cluttered up with crapware Wink

I downloaded because I truly thought I had a sort of problem; FYI, a Trojan keeps coming back everytime I open the Internet back up. thanks for the advice however Wink Smile
