12

Security Master AV is a rogue anti-spyware program from the same family as My Security Engine and CleanUp Antivirus. As a typical fake anti-spyware program it imitates a system scan and claims that your computer is infected with malicious software. The bogus program creates harmless files on your computer and then detect those files as viruses. Finally, it asks to pay for a full version of the program to remove the infections and to make your computer more secure. Moreover, Security Master AV displays fake security warnings and and pop-ups claiming that your sensitive information can be stolen or that your PC is under attack from a remote computer. It goes without saying that you should remove Security Master AV from your computer as soon as possible. Some of the fake security alerts read:

Warning! Identity theft attempt detected
Hidden Connection IP:
Security Risk: High
Target: Microsoft Corporation Keys

Warning! Virus detected
Threat Detected: Trojan-Spy.HTML.Citifraud

SecurityMasterAV is promoted mostly through the use of Trojans, fake online scanners and other misleading websites. While running, Security Master AV will block legit antivirus and anti-spyware programs, disable task manager, registry editor and other useful system tools to protect itself from being removed. It will hijack Internet Explorer and block security related websites or redirect to various misleading websites that promote rogue security software. As you can see, Security Master AV is nothing more but a scam. If you find that your computer is infected with this bogus program please use the removal instructions below to remove Security Master AV from your computer either manually or with an automatic removal tool. If you have already purchased this fake program, then contact your credit card company immediately and dispute the charges.

    It could be named as smc20a_231.exe

    you can use cmd

    then enter command: tasklist to view running process because it blocks the task manager.

    then I entered command: taskkill /im smc20a_231.exe /f to kill the process and removed it from msconfig > tab 'run' and the registry and the location.

    I had a dream to begin my own business, but I didnt earn enough amount of cash to do that. Thank God my mate suggested to take the mortgage loans. Thus I received the auto loan and made real my desire.
