Personal Antivirus is a fake antivirus and belongs to a long list of rogue programs. Its aim is to scam you for money. Just like its predecessors it will apply the same scare tactics and ever attempt to trick you into buying the full version of the bogus program.
It is typically acquired through malicious sites as well as through file sharing download activities. We enjoy time so so much when we are on the Internet that we forget to be cautious of the sites the we visit as well as the files that we download. Nothing realizing that the resources we use are not really legitimate.
Personal Antivirus can get into your computer's system without you even notice its presence not until later when you start seeing the signs. One sign is the tons of pop-ups that you'll be receiving. Another would be a redirection of your browser to a different site and of course you're bound to notice the sudden slowness of your computers performance.
How it works is that Personal Antivirus would configure itself so that it can run simultaneously as you log in. It would then do a scan of your system and tell you that your computer is infected. You'll start receiving alert-prompts stating that your computer is in danger and it will ask you to pay for the full version in order to get rid of it.
Do not believe it. It is a scam and it's just waiting for innocent computer users to fall for it. Remember that the best thing to do is to get rid of it immediately. It will cause you more trouble if it lasts any longer. It has the ability to steal your passwords and that is something we really do not want happening.
