Disk Antivirus Professional is a fake antispyware program that only scares people into thinking their computer is under heavy virus attack and need an urgent fix. It mimics legitimate antivirus software, scans your system and displays security alerts like: “Warning! Application cannot be executed. The file GoogleUpdate.exe infected. Please activate your antivirus software.” As you may have noticed whenever you try to remove the threats found, a window pop ups, asking you to activate Disk Antivirus Professional to pro version so as to carry on further deletion. That’s the cyber criminal’s main goal: tricking you into buying the activation code. Please pay attention. It’s scam. You should NEVER ever buy it.
