Sirius Win 7 Protection 2014 removal instructions

What is Sirius Win 7 Protection 2014?

Sirius Win 7 Protection 2014 is bogus security software that attempts to scare unsuspecting PC users into believing that their computers are infected with high-risk malware, Trojans, and viruses. This rogue antivirus software infiltrates computers without users' consent and imitates a legitimate security scanner by performing 'security scans' and displaying security warning messages.

This malicious software runs fake security scans and imitates the detection of security infections that do not exist on the PC. This trickery has been known to coerce computer users into 'activating' (purchasing a full version of) this program.

What is Sirius Win 8 Protection 2014?

When computers are infected with Sirius Win 8 Protection 2014, users are unable to access Internet - this rogue program blocks access to websites, reporting that they are infected, and then offers to run a security scan.
