Secure Veteran. How to remove? (Uninstall guide)

removal by Julie Splinters - -   Also known as SecureVeteran | Type: Rogue Antispyware

SecureVeteran is classified as a misleading anti-virus application because it uses false scan results and fake security alerts to convince you that your computer is infected with malware. 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. The bogus program detects harmless files that were created during installation process. You may safely ignore all scan results. Furthermore, SecureVeteran will impersonate Windows Security Center and display fake notifications about various system security threats and infections. It will also claim that your anti-virus software is disabled and that your PC is under attack by an Internet virus.

What is more, Secure Veteran will block antivirus software and certain security related websites. It will redirect you to various misleading websites full of advertisements and fake software reviews. As you can see, this program is a scam. Do not purchase it! Please use the removal guide below to remove Secure Veteran from your computer manually for free.

    I just got this yesterday, and did all the things that this said to do. I am pretty sure that it is gone now. What would happen if I were to purchase the program.

    The people who made this are very tricky, it looks like a Microsoft anti-virus program.
