The most widely used infiltration method still remains the same – fake security alerts generated by trojans. There are also fake online advertisements and promoted links that may be a source of infection. Usually, the owners of infected computers claim that these fake alerts and pop-ups come like form nowhere. The worst thing is that these pop-ups are rather distracting and annoying. The main purpose of these alerts is to make you think that your computer is infected and promote System Security 4.52 as the best solution is such situation.

Once System Security 4.52 it will supposedly scan your computer and display a list of infections. The scan results are false as well as all security alerts and pop-ups displayed by this parasite.

The rogue will block security related websites in order to protect itself.

    I was wondering how I got this virus, even though I never bought the System Security 4.52, specifically when I was downloading Vexira antiviral software? ( a free version)? I had never had anything like this before. Now, I can't get to my browser to try to clean it off.
