You might have seen a virus program running on your computer that you did not install. What you are viewing is called Rouge. Rouge is a very dangerous virus that can infect your computer with a fake anti-virus program such as the one above. The program is design to trick you into believing the program is real and that you are infected with those viruses. The program will take you to a website to pay for the software which then they will steal your credit card information. The fake virus industry is a million possible billion dollar industry. Rouge is so powerful it can sometimes disable most popular anti-virus solutions. So far we have seen it disable Norton, MacAfee, TrendMicro and a few others. In this day of age you need more than just an virus protection. Our suggestion is having your favorite anti-virus software running with a powerful spyware solution.
Our suggestion is to run Super Anti-Spyware and MalwareBytes. SAS and MWB are the two programs we use to remove the Rouge fake anti-virus from our customers computers. If you are infected with Rouge, or notice your computer is running slow. Download and run the latest Super Anti-Spyware and MalwareBytes to run on your computer.
If you are not running an anti-virus solution we suggest running Kaspersky or the paid edition of AVG. The free edition of AVG does not come with live active scanning which is required to catch Rouge.
