removal by Ugnius Kiguolis - -   Also known as Free Antivirus 3.3, Total Security | Type: Rogue Antispyware

Securebit Technologies virus (can also be called as Free Antivirus 3.3 or Total Security) is a sophisticated program that pretends to be legitimate anti-virus. Just like a normal security application, it shows how it scans the system for viruses and then displays its detailed reports about numerous threats detected. In reality, it has no ability to find and remove viruses because it has an empty virus database. All these scanners and security notifications about 'PC Health Status' are forged and seek only to create a need of its licensed version, which costs $49.99. Besides, as our security experts report, it also has ability to lock the system down if user doesn't pay the fee within a speciffic amount of time. Remember, Securebit Technologies virus seeks only to make you purchase its licensed version, which is typically promised to help in virus removal after giving these faux security notifications. Instead of sharing your money with scammers, you must remove Securebit Technologies virus from the PC without any delay.

HOW CAN I GET INFECTED WITH Securebit Technologies virus?

Securebit Technologies virus can get inside the system without any permission asked. Just like many other threats, it may get inside the system from illegal websites, sites that have been hacked or spam. Besides, there are numerous misleading notifications spreading on the Internet and offering to update your Flash Player and similar programs. If you click on such alert, you may also get infected with Securebit Technologies virus. Remember,you should always rely on official websites when downloading or updating something.

As soon as it gets inside, virus starts posing as a legitimate security application: it starts scanning the system for malware and returns continuous warnings telling that computer is dangerously infected. For example:

Of course, this alert that you see above may be really tricky because it mimics Windows and appears just above the task bar. In order to make sure that it is fake, you should always scan your computer with alternative anti-spyware, which is known to be legitimate and remove what it finds.

It's worth mentioning that this sophisticated virus can also block the system if user fails to register Free Antivirus 3.3 within a specific amount of time. This message, that holds the computer a hostage, claims:
