It isn’t a coincidence that we categorize Disk Antivirus Professional as virus. This is a fake anti-malware tool that has just recently been released by the load of cyber crooks. This hoax is the direct successor of System Progressive Protection scam previously described by us. And, in fact, there’s nothing “professional” in this program. Even its design is poorly made, not mentioning poor English grammar and spelling. Do not trust this fake anti-virus tool. Its scans and security reports are fake and have the intention to scare you tremendously with a lot of deceitful statements about poor security status of your computer and about various fake infections identified during the fake scan of your system.
Disk Antivirus Professional malware enters computers when users don’t even realize the infection is being implanted. Immediately during the installation process the hoax amends your system settings to be started automatically together with every system startup. Hence, as soon as you launch your computer, this badware comes up in front of you and begins brainwashing you with a lot of deceitful statements about all sorts of malwares allegedly revealed by it during the faulty system scan. The truth, however, is that Disk Antivirus Professional is the malware itself, in spite of its nice-sounding name. Its capabilities of removing malwares are surely overestimated. When real security threats do attack your system this scam will never protect you. Hence, buying it as instructed by the hoax is a serious mistake and the total waste of your funds. Hopefully, this will never be the case with you.
