Security Suite Platinum

I run WinXP Home and IE8.I have the Security Suite program installed on my machine but have been reading about a program with a similar name which is a scam.
How do I find out if I have the genuine article or the scam version?

Have a look at the website below. Scroll down the page and you'll find a screenshot from the scam Security Suite.

If yours looks like it, then the page also has instructions on how to get rid of the malware.

I have no personal experience of this website or its credentials.

I was typing as posted.

Mack1 - I should try the Fruit Bat /\0/\ solution first.

No Fruit Bat it doesn`t start with AV.

Where did you get the program from?

Can`t remember.Could have been offered in a Security Suite Essentials e-mail which I assume should mean it is OK.

Personally I would never download anything that was "offered" to me in an email. The genuine program is called RegRun Security Suite Platinum and it's not free - it will cost you $70. There are many free anti-malware programs available. If you didn't pay for it then I would suggest you uninstall it.
