How To Remove Anti-Virus Live and Other Rogue/Fake Antivirus Malware and Scareware

How dreadful is it to visit a website only to have your computer infected with Anti-Virus Live or another fake or rogue fake antivirus malware program. Anti-Virus Live looks just like an antivirus program but is infact a virus itself. This type of rogueware infects your computer through security holes either in your Windows operating system or more commonly through your Internet browser like Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox. It can be almost impossible to avoid having your computer infected by this scareware even if you close the pop-ups or the window to the website itself.
