Win 7 Security 2012 is a rogue anti-spyware program that reports false system security threats to make you think that your computer is infected with malware when the only actual infection is Win 7 Security 2012 itself. It also displays fake security alerts and pop-ups stating that your computer is under attack from a remote computer or that your sensitive information can be stolen. Finally, it will ask you to purchase the program to remove the infections which don't even exist on your computer. As you can see, Win 7 Security 2012 is a total scam. Please don't purchase it and uninstall this bogus program from your computer upon detection.

Win 7 Security 2012 is a typical rogue program promoted through the use of Trojans and other malicious software. Trojan horses usually come from fake online anti-malware scanner or other misleading web sites. Once running, Win 7 Security 2012 will scan your computer for malware and display a list of infections that supposedly can't be removed with a trial version of the program, so you have to buy it. However, you already know that this is nothing more but a scam and you must ignore those alerts:

Privacy threat!
Spyware intrusion detected. Your system is infected. System integrity is at risk. Private data can be stolen by third parties, including credit card details and passwords. Click here to perform a security repair.

Stealth intrusion!
Infection detected in the background. Your computer is now attacked by spyware and rogue software. Eliminate the infection safely, perform a security scan and deletion now.

It may install additional malware on your computer. If you find that your PC is infected with Win 7 Security 2012 please use the removal instructions below to remove this infection from the system either manually or with an automatic removal tool.

I still cant get rid of mine, mine was comically named std.exe.....when i start the comp up normally and i end the process it comes right back.....my restore points are fresh so even if i restore i think that the spyware is still gonna be there....i guess i could try running it as admind but i dont think it will make a difference, also on the regedit....some of the folders that im supposed to go into to delte registry entries arent there for me......ive successfully removed the 2010 version of this spyware scam with similar instructions before from my desktop but this one is driving me bonkers....any help would be much appreciated. thanks again

Ive ran both Spybot S&D and spyware Dr. My computer still is running slow and my McAfee firewall and Windows fire wall both cannot be turned on. I did stop dwm.exe Desktop Window Manager and my computer doesnt seem sluggish but I still cannot enable my firewall. Any advise on what to do next. Im not that computer knowledgeable and not sure if I should do the above stuff mentioned. Im afraid I might do something that is irreverseable.
