    This is ridiculous. I thought you were to solve the problem, not to tell me what Internet Antivirus Pro is. That I already know. What a rip off!

Internet Antivirus Pro is online fraud and a computer parasite. It spreads through software exploits (usually via web browser vulnerabilities), but it may also trick people into downloading this useless software manually. InternetAntivirusPro uses online advertisements to attract customers and make them interested in buying this malware.

When installed, InternetAntivirus Pro starts loading many pop-ups with security-related content. It usually reports security and privacy risks or displays results of system scan. All these messages are fabricated to scare people into purchasing the full version of Internet Antivirus Pro. Do not trust pop-ups loaded by InternetAntivirus Pro! This program is not an anti-virus; it mimics anti-virus applications in order to get money.

InternetAntivirusPro may slow down computers performance and internet connection.

    Do you know what Internet Antivirus Pro is?

    Internet Antivirus Pro is another rogue anti-spyware program that is very detrimental to the normal operation of your computer. Internet Antivirus Pro is basically useless software that can be compared to a dangerous virus infection. Internet Antivirus Pro, after installed, greats you with many popups that are all fake messages about how your computer has an issue or infection that needs to be addressed. Any message related to InternetAntivirusPro is bogus.

    InternetAntivirus Pro was found to come directly from the website where the InternetAntivirus Pro program can be purchased. To sum things up, Internet Antivirus Pro is not an antivirus application but more like spyware that may eventually damage your computer files.

    In non-techie terms: Internet Antivirus Pro should never be purchased under any circumstances. Internet Antivirus Pro is a waste of money and you will only disappoint yourself by downloading, installing or purchasing this useless program. Internet Antivirus Pro may be hard to remove without the guidance of a complete removal guide as shown below. website image:

Sounds like a virus/spyware problem. If you have access to another machine download a recovery disc to start the machine with and search for the problem. I would recommend AVG but there are plenty to choose from.
