Windows Security System. How to Remove? (Uninstall Guide)

Windows Security System is a malicious application that belongs to the category of rogue anti-spywares. It hails from the same family as Security Monitor 2012 malware and should be eliminated without any delay. There are some reasons why we have named this program as a rogue AV: it is usually distributed with a help of trojans, it displays misleading alerts and fake system scanners and finally tries to sell its fake licensed version. Also, you will see some strange pop-up warning messages from this program that will make you completely disabled from browsing the web. Be sure that you must remove Windows Security System without any delay if you want to save your computer!

HOW CAN I GET INFECTED WITH WINDOWS SECURITY SYSTEM

Windows Security System is distributed similarly to all its predecessors – this program comes inside the system with a help of trojans that typically enter the system through security holes found. As soon as it settles down, this rogue starts displaying malicious alerts and scanners reporting about numerous viruses detected. While you may believe that they are real, keep in mind that they are phony in fact. Before going further, you should simply check your computer with alternative anti-spyware programs and see if they report these files as viruses. It can be predetermined that all Windows Security System's reported files will be said to be legitimate. In addition, it also tends to display such errors:

Task Manager has been disabled by your administrator

Registry editing has been disabled by your administrator

Security Center Alert
To help protect your computer, Security Center has blocked some features of this program.
Name: Screen.Grab.J.exe
Risk: High

Like we have mentioned, Windows Security System won't stop flooding your screen with false positives and fabricated scans until you won't remove it from the system. All this is done for making you pay for registering its full version.

HOW CAN YOU REMOVE WINDOWS SECURITY SYSTEM
