If you are experiencing a perceptible dip in the performance of your PC, and your Internet connection has suddenly become spotty, you may have malware on your PC. Have you recently installed AV Security Suite? If so, then you definitely have one virus, as this supposed antimalware software is actually a virus in disguise. Because it is a virus, is does do real harm, and because it's a virus, it can be quite difficult to remove AV Security Suite. While the option to uninstall AV Security Suite will actually appear in the change/remove programs portion of your control panel, it won't do you any good.

What is so scary about this type of virus is that there are so many of them out there. In this case AV Security Suite removal has proven particularly difficult. It writes itself into several directories of your computer and spreads fast. The virus' main purpose is to steal your private information so that it can be sold. It slows down your PC and your internet connection in the process.

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, really does apply in this case. If you don't want to have to delete AV Security Suite, then don't get infected by it. To prevent infection you should avoid these things:

* Browsing new and obscure websites- Many websites are set up specifically to hijack your browser.
* Opening email with strange, generic subjects - these are often from people you actually know, if the message is not explicitly personal, you may want to ask your contact about it through other means before opening it.
* Avoid using P2P software- The files you download using such software come from a "swarm" this means that your PC is open to several users who may not all have virus protection.

If you have been infected, there are two ways to remove AV Security Suite; you can do it manually, by deleting all the files the virus has copied onto your system. There will be virus associated files with.exe,.bat,.dll, and.lnk extensions. You need to delete all of the ones related to the virus, but you mustn't delete any other file of this type or you could render your PC unbootable. Next you need to do a registry hack, you need to seek traces of the virus out in the folders HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE and HKEY_CURRENT_USER. Again though, care must be taken not to delete anything but the virus related files.

Not too many people opt for manual removal as it is complicated and risky. The safer, easier and more effective method to get rid of AV Security Suite is with a reputable virus remover. This will not only thoroughly scan your computer and eliminate the virus, it will also provide sustained protection.
