Antiviral Factory 2013 is a scareware program from the Rogue.WinWebSec family of computer infections. This program is classified as scareware because it displays fake scan results, fake security alerts, and blocks your applications in order to scare you into thinking your computer is infected. This program is spread through hacked web sites that attempt to exploit vulnerabilities on your computer to install the infection without your permission or knowledge. This infection is also spread as a Trojan that pretends to be a program required to view online videos.
Once installed, Antiviral Factory 2013 will be configured to start when you login to Windows. Once started, it will perform a fake scan of your computer that will state that numerous infections are present. If you try to clean these infections, though, Antiviral Factory 2013 will state that you first need to purchase the program before being able to do so. As all of the scan results displayed by this program are fake, please ignore any prompts to purchase the program.
