What this programs does:
Alpha Antivirus is a rogue anti-spyware program from the same family as Personal Antivirus. This program is promoted through the use of malware and web pop-ups that will be displayed as you browse the web. If you are infected via a malware infection, then Alpha Antivirus will be installed onto your computer without your knowledge or permission. If you encounter it via a pop-up, you will see a prompt stating that your computer is infected. When you click on this prompt you will be brought to a page showing an advertisement that pretends to be an online anti-malware scanner. This advertisement will pretend to scan your computer and then state that there are infections and that you should download and install Alpha Antivirus to protect yourself.
When Alpha Antivirus is installed it will be configured to start automatically when you boot into Windows. Once running it will perform a scan of your computer and when finished state that there are numerous infections on your computer. It will not allow you to remove these infections, though, until you first purchase the program. These infections are all fake and do not exist on your computer. They are only being shown to scare you into purchasing Alpha Antivirus.
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
