Security Essentials 2011 is a rogue anti-spyware program from the same family Security Essentials 2010. If you somehow ended up with this fake security program then you should remove it as soon as possible. The rogue program pretends to scan your computer for all sorts of malware and then states that Security Essentials 2011 has found some serious infections on your computer that should be removed immediately. What you should know is that this rogue program reports the same infections on every infected computer. So basically, it prompts to pay for a full version of the program to remove the infections which don’t even exist.

While SecurityEssentials2011 is running, it will display many fake security alerts about serious security problems and infections. It will also display fake pop ups from your Windows taskbar and even change your Desktop background. However, the biggest problem is that it may actually bock legitimate antivirus and antispyware programs. Windows task manager and registry editor may be blocked too. In such case, you should restart your computer in safe mode with networking and download an automatic removal tool. What is more, the rogue program will display many fake security alerts.
