AntiVirGear is a rogue anti-spyware application that runs on Microsoft Windows.
Once the virus is executed, AntiVirGear will display false warning messages and show misleading scan results in order an attempt to trick the user into obtaining the full version of the program. AntiVirGear may also download and install additional spyware programs and Trojans. AntiVirGear can come bundled with shareware or other downloadable software.
The program then prompts the user to purchase a registered version of the software in order to remove the reported threats.
