IEAntivirus or IEAntivirus 3.2 Removal Guide

Do you know what IEAntivirus is?

IEAntivirus, also referred to as IE Antivirus 3.2 or IEAntivirus, is a rogue anti-spyware program that pretends to be a legitimate spyware removal tool. IEAntivirus was discovered by us to be a variant of other previous rogue applications such as Malware Bell, Files Secure and IE Defender. IEAntivirus is potent in the way that it displays erroneous scan results listing several infections that it supposedly found on your system. The scan results that IEAntivirus lists are totally bogus and cannot be trusted.

IEAntivirus is no good at removing spyware or any other known parasites. IEAntivirus may be installed through the well known Vundo or Zlob Trojan infection. Usually these types of Trojans are downloaded through a fake video codec or peer to peer websites. IEAntivirus' ultimate goal is to get computer users to purchase the full version of IEAntivirus through it's devious antics. IEAntivirus has it's own website,, which promotes and sells the IEAntivirus software. This website should be avoided because it is very devious in the way it advertises and promotes a potentially dangerous program.

In non-techie terms: IEAntivirus is just like other known rogue anti-spyware programs in that it attempts to take your money in return for a useless program. IEAntivirus is a complete waste of time and should not be downloaded or purchased under any circumstances.

    gerald.. never ever do thattt... best stuff u can do is google it before u use the credit card.. !! u're gonna find free stuff like i did ( :-D ) to remove all ur boo boos... i knoooow ie antivirus sucks

  • Mya


    SmitFraudFix is a specific tool that is designed to remove specific infection, apparently the issue that you are having is because you have several additional infections that SmitFraudFix does not target. You may want to try other free programs to get rid of IE Antivirus.


    If the product you're using is reliable then it is doing its job. If not, take one of the files that the scanner finds and search for it on google and see what other websites are saying or whether the file is associated with a spyware program.

  • gil

    i think the ie got blown away or so (no pop up yet so far)

  • Was in trouble

  • larrylchan

    On the 3rd of June I purchase the ieanti.virus 3.2 Before I have a chance to print out the purchase license the page disappear so now I cannot operate it please contact to tell what to do to correct it.

    Thank you

    I was also held hostage from IE AntiVirus over 17 hours
    I wasted so much time in trying to get it removed by Norton's. I finally removed Norton's and added Spyware Doctor with Antivirus. IE AntiVirus was quarantine and deleted. I felt that somehow that Spyware Doctor might not removed all of the programs that was duplicated and used by IE AntiVirus. I then read about SmithFraudFix.exe and I followed step by step on how to remove everything that IE AntiVirus might had left behind. SmithFraudFix.exe is really a life saver and a computer saver. I made a webpage and I am donating my time in trying to educate others that might not be as luck as I was in removing IE AntiVirus. I have also added links to this website and SmithFraudFix.exe.

    Thank's, thats all i can say...
    words cant describe how much i lub u xD

  • Susan

    The SmitFraudFix doesn't work - this virus has blecked me from downloading it, (as it has all other fixes). It also erased that portion of windows that lets me search for files and stuff so I can remove it manually. I am not a happy camper!

  • fernando

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\uninstall\ie antivirus

    And the pop ups continue :

    "System Error
    Atention WinuE! ...

    Also the file ieantivirus.dll
    couldn't delete

    Thank you

  • Gary

    Spybot has an update that completely fixed the problem. Hope you already have it on your machine so all you have to do is launch it and update it.

    the creator of ie antivirus should be hanged

  • David

    Please help me i'm tryin' spybot but it doesn't work 'til now...HELP

  • ea

    All I can say is, THANK YOU SOO VERY MUCH, I don't know how to express my appreciation! Really killed the bugger!!


  • Handyman


    I must thank you so much for this wonderful fix.

    I had Spyware Doctor with Antivirus installed and it could not protect my computer nor removed it. Tried scanning it in safe mode and could not find any problems.
    Was desperate and installed Symantec Norton 360 to scan and found no threats too.

    Both top programs were useless as they were unable to detect the irritating problem i experienced for 3 days.
    I was about to re-format my HDD until I found your website and the SmitfraudFix.exe.

    It works and i sincerely thank you again

    Warmest regards
