CleanUp Antivirus

CleanUp Antivirus is a phony antivirus software, designed to infected PC after PC and at the same time rip people off. It is a clone of the Smart Virus Eliminator family.

Clean Up Antivirus uses fake online scanners to scare the user into installing the application. Once installed it will detect several false infections and urge the user into licensing the software in order to remove these false infections.
