AV-Clean is one of those program that comes uninvited and brings trouble. AVClean is a computer infection distributed by other malware and trojans. When AV-Clean is installed, it presents itself as a security application and it requires paying for a license to keep a computer protected. To make things worse, AV Clean prevents user from deleting it and it also blocks regular antispyware tools. The victims usually don’t feel endangered because the fraud is designed to look like a decent security program.
The goal of AV-Clean is making people interested into purchasing the paid version which by the way doesn’t even exist. How does AV-Clean get the money? It fabricates enormous amounts of security alerts and warnings and scan results and similar pop-ups. All the messages claim the machine is in bad state and the paid version is needed to fix everything back to normal. Do not trust pop-ups loaded by AV-Clean scam and under no circumstances pay for that deceptive program.
