"Internet Antivirus is a new rogue anti-virus program that uses false information and aggressive tactics in order to scare people into purchasing it. Most people see ads for Internet Antivirus as they browse the web…If you decide to download and install the program, Internet Antivirus will be set to automatically run when your computer starts. Once started, it will scan your computer and display a variety of legitimate programs and folders and state that they are infection. These infections, though, can’t be removed unless you first register the program. This act of displaying legitimate entries as malware is being done to scare you into purchasing the program.

These popups and warnings can cause your computer to slow down and not run as efficiently as it should.
