Win 7 Home Security 2011 is a rogue anti-spyware application that is promoted through the use of malware. It also comes from fake video websites or bundled with other malware and fake online scanners as well. Once installed, Win 7 Home Security 2011 will run a fake system scan and display numerous non-existent infections that can't be removed unless you first purchase the program.
