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

removal by - -   Also known as WindowsSmartSecurity, Windows Smart Security 2009, WindowsSmart Security | Type: Rogue Antispyware

Windows Smart Security is a misleading antivirus application from the same family as Total Security, which is also a rogue security application. WindowsSmartSecurity displays fake security alerts and reports false or exaggerated system security threats/infections to scare you into thinking your computer is badly infected with malware. When running, the misleading program will display a list of infections that supposedly can't be removed unless you purchase this program. That would be a huge mistake, because Windows Smart Security is nothing more but a scam. Do not pay for this bogus program and uninstall Windows Smart Security from your computer as soon as possible.

Unfortunately, WindowsSmart Security 2009 does even more to achieve its goal. Once installed, it will flood your computer with very annoying and of course fake system security alerts and Blue Screen of Death imitations. It will also hijack your Desktop and display misleading information about serious spyware infections. And of course, fake notifications form Windows Task bar will be included as well. Once your PC is infected you will probably see fake alerts with the following text:

"Windows Smart Security Firewall Alert
Windows Smart Security Firewall has blocked a program from accessing the internet
Internet Explorer Internet Browser is infected with worm Lsas.Blaster.Keyloger. This worm is trying to send your credit card details using Internet Explorer Internet Browser to connect to remove host.
Activate Windows Smart Security"

"Windows Smart Security Firewall Warning
Intercepting programs that may compromise your privacy and harm your system has been detected on your PC. Click here to remove then immediately with Windows Smart Security"

Fake Blue Screen of Death alert imitates Windows crash and states that NTFS.SYS has a problem:

"*** NTFS.SYS - Address 0xFBFE7617 base at 0xFD3094C2, DateStamp 3d6abeff
*** STOP: 0x00000050 (0xFD3094C2,0x00000001,0xFBFE7617,0x00000000)"

Hijacked Desktop reads:

"WARNING! YOUR'RE IN DANGER! YOUR COMPUTER IS INFECTED WITH SPYWARE!
SECURE YOURSELF RIGHT NOW!
REMOVE ALL SPYWARE FROM YOUR PC!"
