Remove Super AV

What is Super AV?

Super AV is a bogus security program from the Win32/FakeXPA family; it is promoted online as a trustworthy product but all it does is to notify you of bogus threats, phony attacks and claims falsely to stop risks to lure users to purchase its complete version. Super AV is inserted to your system via the help of Trojans, as you visit corrupted web sites and via downloading corrupted or malicious programs.

Once Super AV gets into your system, it will inform you via pop up warnings that there are risks to your files and your private data and it suggests that you scan your pc using Super AV's scan. But when you do in fact press scan, you will get a bogus scan output that will mention so many nonexisting threats; you can disregard the scan and even reject it right away. Threat messages will annoyingly display every 2 minutes plus Super AV will get into your browser to take you to its pay for site to pretend to eliminate the threat right away.

Some of the Super AV fake security alerts and warnings that users may get:
Your computer is in danger! Super AV has detected some serious threats to your computer! These viruses needed to be eliminated immediately! Please click this icon to remove threats.
Super AV – Malware detected Threats have been detected! Warning! Some Serious threats have been detected to your computer, that need to be removed instantly or they may cause critical damage to your computer! Super AV can remove these viruses easily, and prevent damage to your personal computer. If you click “Remove viruses”, you can protect your computer from destruction, however, if you click “Continue unprotected, your identity may be compromised and you may lose all of your important files and experience system slowdown.

It's important to remove Super AV once you see its popups. Use a trusted anti-spyware application to get rid of it plus conduct a total registry scan to check for possible corrupted files.

Super AV Removal Instructions

Step 1: Stop Super AV processes

In order to stop Super AV from interfering with our removal procedure, we need to end and kill its processes. For this, we will use a FREE powerful utility called RogueKiller.

RogueKiller (by Tigzy) is a tool written in C++, which scans the running processes, and kills those which are malicious. This tool was developed based on speed execution, which will clean the running processes before being killed.

To terminate Super AV process:

  1. Always in Safe Mode Download RogueKiller to your desktop from the following link:

    RogueKiller Download link
    RogueKiller Setup Icon
    RogueKiller is a portable application, so you don't need to install anything.

  2. Super AV may block all executable files, so when you launch the RogueKiller file, it will execute itself. So Rename RogueKiller.exe to RogueKiller.com or winlogon.exe or iexplore.exe

  3. At this point a "pre-scan" will complete and stop any malicious process. Also a list of options will appear along the right-hand side.

Step 2: Remove Super AV registry keys

To remove Super AV malicious registry entries, we will need RogueKiller again.
RogueKiller also checks for rogue Registry entries, rogue drivers, and Master Boot Record (MBR) issues, so rootkits will be cut.
RogueKiller can also fix and restore a Host file, delete any Proxy entries, repair shortcut problems and unhide files.

CAUTION: This tool is not for beginners. In this step we will ONLY use the Registry tab.

To Delete Super AV Registry entries:

  1. Always in Safe Mode run a scan, open RogueKiller and click on Scan.
