Do you know what Fake Google Antivirus is?
Every single day rogue antispyware applications find new ways to get into target system around the world. Fake Google Antivirus utilizes the popular search engine in order to make the users download more malware onto their computers. Due to the fact, that it threatens to block the access to Google service a lot of users do not hesitate to click the “DOWNLOAD” button on the online message they receive. Here is the full text of the fraudulent security message:
Google systems have detected unusual traffic from your computer. Please check you PC on viruses.
To continue, please download and install our antivirus software
Or our systems will block your access to Google services
The fake origins of this message is blatantly obvious from the poor spelling, but a lot of users still fall for this, because they are too desperate to set things straight. Unfortunately, if you download the so-called “antivirus software”, you will allow even more malware into your computer. In this case, “downloading” Google Antivirus drops Trojan.Win32.Fakeav.tri. It only proves that rogue antispyware applications seldom come alone.

Do not forget that Google is not associated with any antimalware application, and Fake Google Antivirus is nothing but an annoying threat. Therefore, you should invest in a reliable antimalware tool and terminate Fake Google Antivirus before this infection turned into something terrible.
In non-techie terms:
Fake Google Antivirus is an infection that sends fake security notifications with intention to spread the infection even further. Users attacked by this threat have to delete Fake Google Antivirus and all of its components from their computers immediately.
