Disk Antivirus Professional is reported to be a PC infection (Rogue.WinWebSec) and claims to be a reliable AV application, which has detected serious viruses in your computer system. In case that you want to delete some of the reported viruses, Disk Antivirus Professional says that the only way to do that is to pay for its full version.
Disk Antivirus Professional wants to steal your browsing information and gather details about your browsing habits and preferred web pages. When users land on a compromised web page, they see a misleading pop-up notification which imitates the layout and content of a reliable and genuine warning. The message notifies the user of serious computer viruses. Then, it asks the user to download and install Disk Antivirus Professional on his PC to delete the infections. There are also cases reported when the virus is downloaded to computers after the user has downloaded some compromised video codec to watch a video online or the infection has been attached to a spam email message.
After the virus has managed to gain access to your PC, Disk Antivirus Professional starts showing scary pop-up notifications alarming you that your information and system are at risk. These are some of the warnings displayed:
Security Monitor: WARNING!

The truth is that these problems do not exist at all, and the messages are displayed only to mislead users into paying for the useless services of Disk Antivirus Professional and voluntarily giving their financial and personal details to hackers.
To hide itself from security software, Disk Antivirus Professional has blocked the Windows Task Manager and other Windows features. Also, this fake AV program has made it impossible for you to launch your legitimate applications. A message is displayed which claims that the program you want to start is infected.
Application cannot be executed. The file taskmgr.exe infected.
Please activate your antivirus software.
Moreover, your search engine is attacked by Disk Antivirus Professional and always when you want to visit some page, you will see a warning displayed on top of your browser:
Warning! The site you are trying visit may harm your computer!
