Rogue anti-virus applications are popping up everywhere. When you click on a website that you Googled for, it looks like a valid site but then asks you to install anti-virus 2008 or 2009. This virus also comes through as an email that looks like a UPS invoice, Airline ticket, or some other official looking email.
These fake anti-virus programs are usually installed by inexperienced internet users.
Originally when these fake anti-virus programs first started coming out, I tried to remove the virus, files, and registry keys with little success, I would usually end up rebuilding the PC.
