    hey wilders, i will not post a direct link to the website because it is known to have malware and exploits, i accidentally went to it but (thank god for geswall, and avira said it detected it but it got through? i dont know what thats about)

    and its an article telling users how to remove avira antivirus because it says its a rouge av, which it cleary is not.....

    its the second link down from this google search

    ~Information removed per the TOS~

    why would this website say avira is a rogue and fake av??

    post your thoughts, wutsup

    There is actually a rogue that tries to look like Avira, which is what the removal instructions are about. There are various articles about the rogue and security sites discussing the rogue and its removal.

    We have a thread about the rogue with links to the various related articles, so let's go back to that thread now:
