12
MyPcSecure is a rogue anti-spyware application that reports false threats and displays fake security alerts to trick you into thinking your computer is infected with malware. This fake software is promoted and installed through the use of Trojans that usually come from bogus websites, such as fake online scanners or fake video web sites. Once installed, MyPcSecure will run a fake system scan and report false scan results. Then it will ask you to pay for a full version of the program in order to remove the infections. Of course, you shouldn't buy it. The rogue program will also flood you computer with fake security alerts stating that your computer is under attack or seriously compromised. Just ignore those fake security alerts and false scan results. Then, please read the removal guide below how to find out how to remove MyPcSecure from your computer.fakescmypcsecure.jpg

While running, MyPc Secure will also impersonate Windows Security Center and display fake notifications from Windows Task Bar. One of such fake notifications reads:


Security Center Alert!
Infiltration alert!
Your computer being attacked by an Internet
Virus. It could be a password-stealing attack,
a trojan-dropper or simular.
Do you want MyPcSecure to block this attack?

As for the fake Security Center [Figure 2], it also states that your computer is not protected and that you should purchase the software in order to protect yourself. What is more, MyPcSecure will hijack Internet Explorer and redirect Google, Yahoo and other search results. However, the most important thing is that this rogue program comes bundled with rootkit infection. This is very important because it's very hard to remove such infections manually. That's why we strongly recommend you to download an automatic removal tool and run a full system scan with it. Related files: Uninstall.exe
