Rogue anti-spyware (Personal Security) BEWARE!


What this programs does:

Personal Security is a rogue anti-spyware program from the same family as Cyber Security. This program is promoted through the use of malware that will install it on your computer without your permission. In order to protect itself, this program will automatically attempt to terminate security programs that may help to remove it. When installed, Personal Security will be configured to start automatically when Windows starts. Once started, it will scan your computer and display a variety of infections, but will state that it will not remove them unless you first purchase the program. In reality, the infections it finds are either fake or legitimate programs that if deleted could cause problems with the proper operation of Windows. Therefore, please do not act upon any of the files it states are infections.

One of my friends kena this spyware and his PC was rendered useless. First thing DON'T open any article or pictures fwd to you.It may be from someone you know but he could have innocently foward the virus to you. Delete it asap cos if you dun it will infect ur PC and steal ur passwords,credi cards numbers etc.....
So when you see the pic above your PC is a gonna.

Best way to remove this virus is to remove all files.
That means you will need to erase everything.
Reformat the entire C drive.
You will loose all files and data.
You may want to save them, but its a risk you take because you do not know where the virus is being stored or if it has infected all your folders.

Hopefully, you have your operating system original CD. If not,your laptop or PC should be supplied with w back up disc. Follow instructions that came with it.

There are other methods to deal with these virus, but its too lengthy to discuss here and you need to know about registries and geeky stuff.

Thats why it is important to:

A) back up your data/work
B) open emails with caution
C) avoid porn sites
D) when running virus cleaning, turn off system restore, otherwise a copy of the virus remains in your system.

Anyway, buy another laptop, its cheap and use it solely for work and not for surfing or reading emails.

Relax man... all of us have VD already.... ha! ha! ha!

1.Open My computer, choose Disk C;
2.Find C:\Program Files\Common Files\Uninstall\PAV\Uninstall.lnk
3.Run the Uninstall file.
4.Reboot your computer.

This type of malware can infected your PC without you having doing anything. Mostly is from website that embedded some program.

1) Always use pop up blocker
2) Use spybot to clean up this type of malware, very effective
3) If your PC is infected by virus, pull out the LAN cable, do a full virus scan.

Hope it helps.
