Remove Internet Security virus (uninstall guide)
Internet Security fake anti-spyware program can’t be deleted so easily as one might want. This rogue security software blocks all user’s attempts to remove the hoax. This would result in the lack of ability to run available anti-virus programs or to download new ones via the Internet. The rogue wouldn’t stop reminding you that your computer is infected and that you desperately need to do something with it in order to clear all those dark spots on your PC. It tells that the reason why your system works so slow is because you didn’t purchase the legitimate security software. The program would then tell you that it is such legitimate tool. Many people are being actually prompted into paying for this malware sample which is not powerful at all to assist them in virus removal. And in spite of the fact that the rogue would keep reminding you of various system threats quite often, none portion of such information it gives you is of the truth. The threats it claims to detect are fake and unreal. They simply don’t exist. On the other hand, when real threats do attack your system Internet Security fake anti-malware program would not be able to detect them on time or to remove. Hence, you are actually now facing the rogue security software which is not powerful at all when it comes to malware elimination. This is all because it is the malware program itself. Here comes quite a logical question – how do we remove Internet Security malware? This is the question being asked on many security blogs and forums offering various programs to remove it. Some of them, however, simply tell about certain anti-virus product to purchase, without telling how exactly to delete the malware, without really analyzing it. We believe this is not the proper way of running security blogs. Users must get the clear explanation on how to remove the virus program with the help of some specific anti-malware tool.
When Internet Security comes to your computer you would not actually notice this very process. This is because the above-mentioned program is the rogue security software and it would not be installed according to your approval or intention. There are special modifications initiated by this hoax which make it start up together with your computer, each time you launch Windows operating system. As you see, the malware does not really care about your opinion or preferences, does it? In addition, once the rogue is successfully installed it would arrange bogus system scan and then show many fake warnings without actually scanning your PC for availability of real threats. This is a hoax that applies generic names to prevent users from obtaining the facts about the threat and thus believing that they are buying something decent. This is simply not the right way of thinking, since no application that is spread through malware and malicious web-pages can be decent. This is exactly how Internet Security got on your PC initially. As we said, once your workstation gets contaminated with Internet Security you will start encountering all forms of system alerts and popups. These popups might be similar to this one:
Explorer.exe can not start
File Explorer.exe is infected by
Please activate Internet Security to protect your Computer.
Don’t forget that Internet Security would also run its scan which will identify all forms and types of horribly sounding threats in legitimate or non-existing files. This type of fake anti-spyware applications is known for trying to scare users by using names related to various types of sinful behavior when describing those fake threats, actually accusing you of doing those bad things. So if you encounter scan results with similar descriptions and some other generic infections, don’t bother looking for these files on hard drive to get rid of them or to effect the payment for Internet Security registered version. You should delete Internet Security malware, which is you only PC’s enemy most probably. To prevent the very uninstall process on your part, Internet Security will try to block decent anti-virus application downloads by stopping its running. To bypass this blockage, you have several options described below:
- Terminate the virus process by going to Start->Run, then taskkill.exe /F /IM isecurity.exe . If you failed to terminate the process from the initial attempt you might try doing it several times.
- Once the malware process is killed (terminated) you may use your browser to download GridinSoft Trojan Killer for virus removal.
