Remove Live Security Professional

removal by Jake Doevan - -   Also known as LiveSecurityProfessional | Type: Rogue Antispyware

Live Security Professional is another dangerous threat from Winwebsec family. This family has already became famous for its Live Security Platinum and the latest rogue, which is called System Progressive Protection. It seems that scammers have used the same GUI for this threat and designed it for the same misleading activity – Live Security Professional also tries to create an image that user is infected with numerous viruses and that he needs to purchase its license. However, you should purchase it only when you don't care about your computer's security. Just like the trialware, licensed Live Security Professional's version must be removed from the system without any delay. It has no virus database and seeks only to steal the money from its victims. Besides, it can easily steal credit card details after making the payment for its license! As you can see, Live Security Professional is a real threat that can easily initiate serious problems.

HOW CAN I GET INFECTED WITH Live Security Professional?

Being similar to other rogue programs from Winwebsec, there is no wonder why this program uses the same means of distribution. Our research center warns that Live Security Professional can easily be downloaded together with freeware, shareware, spam email attachments or other downloads that were infected primary. Once inside the system, Live Security Professional initiates some minor changes of the system and starts its misleading campaign after you reboot our computer. In order to get the money, it claims to be an efficient instrument for keeping computer safe from viruses. However, this statement is definitely untrue. You must ignore every alert you get from Live Security Professional. Here are some examples:

    I tried this and it worked. hey HIGHC40Z, go to start menu -> all programs and search for the startup folder. you will find a registry file named like maybe “e04..” something like that, the name looks really strange. delete that file. now reboot the computer. update your antivirus (i recommend avira free) and run a thorough scan of your computer. problem solved. what actually happened to me : actually this malware wasnt letting me open any programs at all and removal of that registry file from startup folder prevents its execution during reboot so that you can run your antivirus and other software.

    I havent tried this, but you may wanna conduct a system restore through the safe mode to a date prior to the infection or a date prior to the latest software you have installed (the software may have brought the malware with it).
