How To Remove Antivirus Monitor Virus / Maleware

Antivirus Monitor is a rouge anti virus program that infects your pc with multiple spyware and malware issues. Antivirus Monitor automatically installs itself from ActiveX files that are downloaded to your system due to flaws in your internet security settings or out of date spyware removal tools. Once a system is infected with this malware the program will continuously give messages about an infection on the PC via pop-ups, and notifications in the task menu. When this program runs it will appear to be running scans and it will present a list of “infections” and when it attempts to remove the infections it will prompt users to purchase the product to remove the infections. This is just a scam to scare users into submitting their credit card information.

    The files listed should be located in the registry which you can get to by opening Run followed by regedit which is going to open the registry then just go to the listed directories and remove them. If your internet browser is still getting redirects its a good idea to reset it. In internet explorer this can be done by going to tools followed by internet options. Once here choose the advance tab, once here you’ll notice the reset button. Doing this will erase any sort of changes in the browser that may be causing redirects.

    %Temp% is the Windows Temp folder, which may be hidden by default. To view the folder if it is hidden in Windows XP open up an My Computer and open up the C: drive then choose the Tools tab followed by folder options, then choose View. Here you will see an option “Hidden files and folders” and select “Show hidden files, folders, or drives”. In Windows Vista or 7 this option will be under the Organize tab and in “Folder and Search Options”.
    Once the folders are viewable the files you should be looking for should be the in following location: C:\Windows\Temp for Windows 95/98/ME, C:\DOCUMENTS AND SETTINGS\ProfileName\LOCAL SETTINGS\Temp for Windows 2000/XP, and C:\Users\ProfileName\AppData\Local\Temp for Windows Vista and Windows 7.
