How to Remove Antivirus 8 Virus

The Antivirus 8 virus belongs to the same rogue family as Antivirus 7, it acts as an online scanner when it is actually just an ad that will basically pretend to search for infected files on your computer, as soon as it finishes, it will give you a fake report telling you that it has found multiple infected files and that you will have to download the Antivirus 8 software to remove the infections. It should always come as an alarm to you especially because scanners which are not installed do not have the capability of knowing  what files are there in your computer.

The Antivirus 8 malware will also reconfigure your settings if you try to install it, it will then try to modify your registry so that it will always activate itself as soon as you turn on your computer.

You should never believe what it is trying to tell you and you should never send your money to them. To help you get rid of the Antivirus 8 scam software, you can follow the simple steps below.
