    Cbc – WinAntiVirusPro is not a virus as such, it is a PUA (Potentially Unwanted Application). In this case it is rogue software which, as with many other fake software applications, the user would have downloaded only to find that they then have a trojan infection.

    As for the extortionate cost to remove this PUA, it could have been done for free using a utility such as Malwarebytes Antimalware and RogueRemover, and any of the free anti-virus programs available.

    ThreaFire did not protect my Father’s laptop against a smitfraud variant, WinantivirusPRO.

    This isn’t a new malware, so kind of disappointed in TF’s lack of protection for this commone blight.
    He ended up parting w/ $100 to get his laptop cleansed.

    Jason – It’s a great little utility, and the free version works just as well as the pro version with little difference between the two.
    Have a great week,

    Very cool software! Is the pro edition that much better than the free version?

    Chris – It’s quite a handy tool that sits in the background. It’s well worth trying it out as it runs seamlessly alonside any other protection programs installed 🙂
    Have a great weekend my friend,
