Alpha Antivirus

Alpha Antivirus has somehow been loaded on to my computer. I have Mcafee purchased til 2012 so how can this happen and how can I rid this annoyance from my system?

Re: Alpha Antivirus

No anti-virus in the world will protect you from everything out there.  You have to be careful what you click on or download.

There is an excellent removal guide for Alpha Antivirus HERE.

Read the whole page as those first links you see are adverts.

McAfee Does detect Alpha Antivirus http://vil.nai.com/vil/content/v_158054.htm

but if its not getting detected then it might be a new variant, please submit the sample (exe file) to www.webimmune.net so that we can create a fix for it and roll it out in our regular DAT's.

Re: Alpha Antivirus

Thanks for posting that.  Google let McAfee down in this case.
