Rogue System Security

  Quilljar 15:45 02 Apr 2009

A friend has picked up the rogue spyware program System Security. Can anyone tell me how to get rid of it for free? I have tried all the usual anti spyware and Adware programs free and paid for, and scanned Google for hours but there seems to be no easy way to get rid of this very malicious 'ware.

First have you used these free programs

SAS/ Superantispyware click here

MBAM/ Malwarebytes/ Antimalware click here

DRWebCurit/ click here

If not use them there the best,

Also try doing a scan with SAS in safe mode


Reboot into SAFE MODE

1/Click Start and then click Turn Off Computer.
2/In the Turn Off Windows dialog box, click Restart, and then click OK.
3/As your computer restarts but before Windows launches, press F8 repeatedly.
4/Use the arrow keys to highlight Safe Mode, and then press ENTER.
5/If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot system, choose the installation that you need to access using the arrow keys, and then press ENTER.
Note: If Windows launches before you can choose a safe mode, restart your computer and try again
PS/ Sometimes it maybe the F5 key
