Personal Antivirus , fake PersonalAV and Trojan Agent.Azsy RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi,
    i notices these questions are asked thousends of times over internet and lacs of people are infected by these viruses
    1: Personal Antivirus, also known as Personal AV popups. it wants u to buy it.
    2: Trojan agent.azsy infection

    Trojan agent.azsy is a downloader trojan that installs the malicious program onto infected computer. Once your pc is infected by Trojan agent.azsy, this trojan will download Personal Antivirus (rogue spyware on your pc).
    If your antivirus security software is running and updated, it,ll notify you about infection of trojan.agent.azsy. otherwise you wont know that your pc has trojan.agent.azsy and it,ll come to your knowledge when it has downloaded and installed PERSONAL ANTIVIRUS on to your pc. because personalAV will popup and it will force you to purchase it. DO NOT BUY PERSONAL ANTIVIRUS. it is a scam.
    Now if you have any of problems mentioned above, than follow the removal guide to remove Trojan.Agent.Azsy and Personal Antivirus.
    To remove Trojan agent.azsy manually,

    and to remove fake Personal Antivirus (PAV or PersonalAV)

    Good Luck,
    & Happy Virus Free Computing

  • You may have encountered it via an infected web site. If you received a pop-up at a web site and clicked it to close it, it still installs. When you get one of the pop-ups that tell you that your PC is infected and offers to run a clean or purchase a "product" to clean it, the best this to do is to reboot the PC and then clear the temporary Internet files. Clicking the x to close the pop-up in some cases still allows the infecton to install. Unfortunately, this puppy is one of the more successful strains to manage to elude most protection.
