Total Security. How to remove? (Uninstall guide)

removal by Gabriel E. Hall - -   Also known as TotalSecurity, Total Security 2009 | Type: Rogue Antispyware

Total Security is a rogue anti-spyware application that displays false scan results to convince you that your computer is infected with malware. The rogue program is a clone of another fake spyware remover called System Security. Usually, Total Security is installed through the use of Trojan viruses that display fake security alerts about various infections and security problems. Eventually, TotalSecurity access the system without user’s knowledge and permission. On the other hand, the rogue can be also downloaded and installed manually, but this is less common situation.

Once installed, Total Security performs fake system scan and displays various infections that cannot be removed until you first purchases the program, because trial version is supposedly unable to remove those infections. Actually, these infections do not really exist and are being shown only to scare you hopping that you will buy a license of Total Security 2009. The rogue may also display the Total Security Protection Center window which is very similar to legitimate Windows Security Center notifications. What is more, Total Security terminates popular anti-malware applications when users try to perform system scan. To make things worse, TotalSecurity will constantly display fake security warnings. You may see fake alerts with the following text:

“Security Monitor: WARNING!
Attention! System detected a potential hazard (TrojanSPM/LX) on your computer that may infect executable files.Your private information and PC safety is at risk. To get rid of unwanted spyware and keep your computer safe you need to update your current security software. Cleck Yes to download official intrusion detection system (IDS software)”

Fake firewall alerts may also appear.

“Total Security Firewall Alert
