Security Sphere 2012

What is Security Sphere 2012?

Security Sphere 2012 is a fake computer scanner derived from the same family of rogue software as Security Shield, a previous version widely distributed by Internet criminals. Security Sphere 2012 is proliferated through misleading websites, which show fake online security scans or provide fake Flash Player updates.

When this bogus program infects your PC, it performs a fake security scan each time you start your computer. This fake scan reports supposedly detected malware on your computer.

Do not delete these 'detected' files manually, since Security Sphere 2012 does not actually scan your hard drive for malware - the process is imitated and this fake program reports legitimate Windows system files as being infected. When your PC is infected, you will also notice various security warning pop-ups; as with the security scan, these pop-ups are fake.

This is an attempt by the program to scare you into believing that your computer is highly infected and it encourages you to buy a fake license for a non existent full version.

Security Monitor 2012

What is Security Monitor 2012?

Security Monitor 2012 is a fake computer security scanner derived from the same family of misleading applications as Security Solution 2011. This fake computer scanner is often distributed through misleading websites, which display online security scans or provide bogus updates for Flash Player or other legitimate software packages.

Your computer may become infected with Security Monitor 2012 reading email or browsing misleading websites. You should be especially careful whilst reading emails; do not open attachments if you are not certain that the sender is a legitimate person/company.

Internet Security Guard virus

What is Internet Security Guard?

Internet Security Guard is a fake PC security program that attempts to imitate a legitimate security suite. Like its previous versions - System Smart Security, Home Security Solutions, and  others - this rogue program is distributed using misleading methods including fake online security scans and fake Flash Player updates in order to trick unsuspecting computer users into installing Internet Security Guard.

To further trick you into believing that this is a legitimate program, Internet Security Guard has copied its interface from Microsoft Security Essentials - a trusted security program. When Internet Security Guard self-installs on your computer, it performs a fake security scan and 'detects' multiple security problems.

When you click 'Protect Now', you are redirected to a website where you will be asked to purchase a license for Internet Security Guard in order to remove the supposedly detected security issues.

Home Security Solutions

What is Home Security Solutions?

Home Security Solutions is a rogue anti-spyware program created by Internet criminals. This fake scanner is a copy of its previous versions: Home Safety Essentials, System Smart Security, Best Malware Protection, and many others.

Like its previous versions, Home Security Solutions is distributed using fake Flash Player updates or by tricking computer users via fake online security scanner pop-ups. When installed on your computer, this bogus program changes the registry of your operating system so that it starts automatically each time you boot your PC.

Home Security Solutions then performs a fake security scan resulting in the 'detection' of a wide range of security issues on your system.

Super AV

What is Super AV?

Super AV is a rogue computer security program and a copy of its previous version, Antivirii 2011. Like its predecessor, Super AV is an unprofessional bogus program created using a Napalm Rogue Builder.

Internet criminals use this builder to change the names of payment gateways. When your computer is infected with Super AV, various warning messages are displayed, reporting that your PC is in danger and that you need to purchase Super AV in order to remove the 'detected' security issues.

Antivirii 2011

What is Antivirii 2011?

Antivirii 2011 is a rogue computer security scanner; a variant of its previous version, Antivirus Clean 2011. Internet criminals changed the name and interface of their bogus program and began distributing it once more.

Antivirii 2011 is often distributed through fake online security scanners. These pop-ups are created in order to trick computer users into believing that their computers are infected.

Users are then coerced into downloading the rogue program: Antivirii 2011. This bogus program self-installs on computer systems and modifies the registry of the operating system to start automatically each time a computer boots.

AV Secure 2012

What is AV Secure 2012?

AV Secure 2012 is a fake computer security scanner. This rogue program is derived from a large family of misleading computer security scanners such as Cloud AV 2012, AV Protection 2011, and many others.

Like its previous versions, AV Secure 2012 attempts trick users into buying a fake license. Cyber criminals use various rogue methods to proliferate programs such as AV Secure 2012, and your computer may become infected with this bogus security scanner if you visit non legitimate websites.

Cloud AV 2012

What is Cloud AV 2012?

Cloud AV 2012 is a fake computer security scanner that attempts to scare users into buying a fake license in order to remove non existent security threats 'detected' on your computer. This bogus computer scanner is derived from the same family of misleading security programs as AV Protection 2011, AV Security 2012, and many others.

This fake security scanner is proliferated using Trojans and other rogue methods. Internet criminals create bogus websites and exploit security vulnerabilities in users' computers to distribute fake programs such as Cloud AV 2012.

When your computer is infected with this fake program, your desktop will be flooded with fake security warnings and you will forced to observe a fake security scan each time you boot your operating system.

Best Antivirus infection

What is Best Antivirus infection?

Best Antivirus is scare-ware distributed using misleading methods. When installed on your computer, Best Antivirus runs a scan and reports that your browser add-ons are unsafe.

In fact, this bogus program 'detects' all add-ons as being unsafe, a tactic used by Internet criminals to scare you into purchasing their fake program called Best Antivirus. When Best Antivirus is installed on your computer, you are continually reminded that you need to register and pay $42.29 in order to remove the 'detected' unsafe add-ons.

Do not trust Best Antivirus - it is a poorly designed scam designed to scare computer users into purchasing a fake license. If you have already bought Best Antivirus, contact your credit card company and dispute the charges, explaining that you have been tricked into buying a fake computer security program.

Remove Best Antivirus from your computer immediately.

Computer Fix

What is Computer Fix?

Computer Fix is a fake computer optimizer derived from the same family of misleading programs as System Fix, System Restore, Data Restore, and others. This rogue computer program differs from most fake anti-spyware, since it attempts to convince computer users into believing that their computer hardware has serious malfunctions.

Usually, bogus anti-spyware employs a different method - performing security scans and attempting to trick PC users into purchasing fake licenses. When your computer is infected with Computer Fix, multiple warning messages reports that your computer's hard drive has failed, your RAM memory has malfunctioned, or other similar problems.
