Vista Internet Security 2011. How to remove? (Uninstall guide)

removal by Jake Doevan - -   Also known as VistaInternetSecurity2011 | Type: Rogue Antispyware
12

Vista Internet Security 2011 is a malicious program, which belongs to the category of rogue anti-spywares but pretends to be legitimate. Associated with other malwares that all change their names according to the Operating System they find on the infected PC, it can be also named as Win 7 Internet Security 2011 or XP Internet Security 2011 where all its variants will look and act similarly. These malwares will display the same scary pop-ups alerts and notifications telling about viruses detected and then will offer purchasing “licensed” removal tool for fixing everything. However, this “full” version of Vista Internet Security 2011 is nothing but scam which needs to be eliminated just like its trialware!

You must remove Vista Internet Security 2011 for a number of reasons. First of all, this malware mostly comes secretly through the backdoor of the system. Being distributed with a help of Trojans, Vista Internet Security 2011 also uses their help for making some useful system modifications that additionally make this malware to launch after every computer’s reboot. Typically, Vista Internet Security 2011 infects those machines that are poorly protected, so keep in mind that you MUST use reputable anti-spyware every day to protect yourself from such dangerous viruses.

Once it settles down, Vista Internet Security 2011 starts displaying various system security notifications and will interrupt you with those pop-up ads, alerts and warnings every time you will start browsing the web. For example:

System danger!
Your system security is in danger. Privacy threats detected. Spyware, keyloggers or Trojans may be working the background right now. Perform an in-depth scan and removal now, click here.
Internet Explorer alert. Visiting this site may pose a security threat to your system!
Possible reasons include:
– Dangerous code found in this site’s pages which installed unwanted software into your system.
– Suspicious and potentially unsafe network activity detected.
– Spyware infections in your system
– Complaints from other users about this site.
– Port and system scans performed by the site being visited.
Things you can do:
– Get a copy of Vista Antispyware 2011 to safeguard your PC while surfing the web (RECOMMENDED)
– Run a spyware, virus and malware scan
– Continue surfing without any security measures (DANGEROUS)

Though it warns you about some insecure activity detected, you must be more than hundred percent sure that this program tries only to steal your money. You should never buy its recommended “full” version! You will never get your system back to normal and ultimately protected as it says but will even open the backdoor of the system for more viruses. Vista Internet Security 2011 is a scam which must be removed just after finding it on board. So, don’t believe its information given and remove Vista Internet Security 2011 with all its related files.

    Save yourself time and frustration, do a system restore and be done with that virus. That was the EASIEST solution, plus you dont have to buy spy doctor

    system restore works great

    Here are my instructions for removing this.
    Tools: USB Storage with Antimalware Bytes and if possible the most recent virus definitions for it.

    Step 1: Start your computer in “safe mode with command prompt”
    Step 2: Once it starts with the black screen where you can type stuff. Type “explorer.exe” press enter.
    Step 3: click start, run or search, then type “msconfig”
    Step 4: Click startup tab, “disable all” startup items
    Step 5: restart Computer normally
    Step 6: connect usb and install Anti Malware bytes (if you have the latest virus definitions then you would run that after the instal)
    Step 7: Run anti malware bytes and do a quick scan.
    Step 8: remove what it finds:click show results, make sure all items are checked, click remove selected
    step 9: Now I recommend running a full scan since it takes long. Also I would probably go back and make sure all the registry entries and files are deleted.
    Step 10: Enjoy a virus free computer.

    P.S. Now you can run Regedit to view and edit your registry
