How to Remove Antivirii 2011 (Uninstall Guide)

Antivirii 2011 is a rogue anti-virus program meant to scare you into paying for the bogus program to remove fictitious virus threats. This rogue AV was built using Napalm Rogue Builder which allows you to create custom rogue anti-virus programs in just a few minutes. You can name your rogue anti-virus whatever you want, add custom purchase page, change file names and paths were the rogue AV should be installed. But Antivirii 2011 it's not the fist if its kind. Earlier this year, cyber criminals were distributing another fake antivirus program called Antivirus Clean 2011 which was built using the same commercial rogue av builder. Both rogue AVs report non-existent infections on compromised computers, both share the same characteristics and GUI.

Coming across a fake antivirus scam can be scary, this is way, we've got the removal instructions to help to remove Antivirii 2011 and associated malware from your computer. Please follow the steps in the removal guide below.

More about the fake antivirus called Antivirii 2011

The majority of the sites that we found affected by Trojan-downloaders were used to distribute Antivirii 2011, other scareware, and spyware. However, we still believe that this rogue anti-virus won't become a widespread infection. FakeAV programs appear legitimate, they create speech bubbles and genuine looking security alerts to scare you into thinking that your computer is infected. To minimize your chances of being affected by a fake antivirus scam, you should only download and install software from official websites. Once Antivirii 2011 is installed, it will pretend to scan your computer for malicious software, you know spyware, adware, Trojans, keyloggers and similar stuff. It blocks Task Manager and some other Windows tools/utilities. It may block your web browser as well. If you can't use it, reboot your PC in safe mode with networking. Of course, it displays fake warnings that say things like:
Your computer is in danger!
