The ultimate resource for malware removal and virus protection
Avcommand.net website has been an issue of many PC users’ concern lately. The seemingly harmless and quite appealing site in question is in fact an aggressive malvertiser of fake security software. Avcommand.net is pushing Antivirus Soft program – a nasty rogue anti-spyware application. So basically if your browser is redirecting you to Avcommand.net it means there is a more serious parasite on your computer than this hijacker alone. Antivirus Soft scareware breaks into your private cyber life without asking for any permission, and does that using trojan horses of backdoor types. It’s these tiny infections to blame for HOSTS file distortion and browser settings modification. You will consequently have some hard time trying to browser the Internet because almost every site you attempt to visit will be substituted by Avcommand.microsoft.com and, in the long run, Avcommand.net, the former being a counterfeit warning page in no way related with Microsoft (it’s just a product of manipulation with some web-surfing settings) and the latter – the official domain supporting Antivirus Soft scam. Your browser is being thus impudently rerouted in order to force you into eventually purchasing Antivirus Soft licensed version which goes in three different variations depending on the period of this license and some additional features. But you should never expect any real virus protection services from programs like Antivirus Soft. Rogue anti-spywares do not help defend your PC at all, you know. To prevent this malware from diverting your web sessions to Avcommand.net, you need to spot and delete the trojans that cause this whole mess. And chances are you’ve got Antivirus Soft trialware on your machine by this time already, so you might want to check your PC for that crimeware concurrently.
