Please note that the only real infection is Secure Veteran itself. The rogue program is installed through the use of Trojans, fake online anti-spyware scanners and various misleading websites that supposedly provide free online videos of well known TV shows. Most of the time, the user is prompted to install video codec to watch requested video. Then an executable file pop ups, for example vstream_udate.104.exe or similar. Usually such file contains a Trojan virus or it is a setup file of a certain rogue security program.
Once installed, Secure Veteran will be automatically configured to start each time you log on into Windows. It will imitate system scan and list a variety if infections that can’t be removed unless you purchase the program. However, the scan results are false.

It will also claim that your anti-virus software is disabled and that your PC is under attack by an Internet virus.
