AntiVirus Plus 2014 Removal Guide
AntiVirus Plus 2014 is a rogue antivirus program. It doesn‘t protect your PC. In fact, the program itself is a threat to your safety. From the first system scan, AntiVirus Plus 2014 will start providing false scan reports. The fake antivirus program will claim that the computer is filled with various malware, and as a result, the only solution is to buy the full version of the program. Although these claims may seem believable, users should be aware that scan results presented by AntiVirus Plus 2014 are completely false as it is a malicious program itself.
Usually users are unaware where did AntiVirus Plus 2014 come from as the program is installed discreetly. Once the software is installed, a scan will be launched at each start up. The results of the scans will always be the same. What is more, access to other programs or OS features is limited too. For example, victims cannot run any legitimate antivirus programs or start Task Manager. Furthermore, no internet browser could be launched too. As a result, removing the AntiVirus Plus 2014 becomes a hard task.

Despite the fact that the program might imitate cleaning process after the “full version” was bought, in reality no such action is taking place.
