Remove Fake Antivirus GT

by Rohit Khurana on September 10, 2010


When we browse Internet, sometimes we come across a malicious website pretending to be an online scanner which downloads AntivirusGT on our computer automatically. This rogue antispyware program is also distributed to computers through Win32/Trojan/Fake XPA virus. It is originated from the same group who spread the Antivirus 7.

Once Antivirus GT is inside your system, it will display tons of pop-up warnings and/or security alerts about some malicious files that may cause security problems in your system.

After each computer reboot, it will start a phony scanner which will report about some infections which will be the files of Windows programs only or non-existence files to make you really believe that something is wrong with your system. It will recommend you to remove these malicious files by downloading its full version.

It will also hijack your Internet Browser and block most of the websites. Instead it constantly redirects to the one promoting Antivirus GT where you will be asked to download the full version of AntivirusGT with payment. Beware that it is a fake application which doesn’t do exactly what it claims to be so never reveal your credit card details under any condition for your own good. These are all tactics to take your money.

It creates the following Registry Entries:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Browser Helper Objects\{E2BFE352-A303-4EA8-88FE-CE35361D7E8B}
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run “AVGT”
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\5.0\User Agent\Post Platform “WinNT-EVI 12.03.2010″

and following files:

c:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\AVGT
c:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\AVG\Antivirus GT.lnk
c:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\AVG\Uninstall.lnk
c:\Program Files\AVGT
c:\Program Files\AVGT\Antivirus GT.exe
%UserProfile%\Desktop\Antivirus GT.lnk


which can be removed manually which is not only a cumbersome task but also there is a possibility that you may delete some useful files. So, its better to download free AntivirusGT Removal Tool 1.0 which will make your computer secure from this antispyware.
