Security Central. How to remove? (Uninstall guide)

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

Security Central is a bogus program advertised as reliable security software. It uses false scan results, fake security alerts and browser hijacking in order to scare you into purchasing this program. Usually, Security Central is advertised through the use of trojans, fake online anti-malware scanners and other malicious software. Most of the time, Trojans display legitimate looking pop-ups or security alerts similar to Windows Security Center warnings. These alerts state that you computer is infected with trojans, adware or spyware. You may see this fake alert:

“Security Central
