SecureMYpc Spyware Defense and Removal produces ridiculous false positives. The application was tested on absolutely clean uninfected computer, but it still managed to find 183 malicious files and 3 harmful registry keys associated with IMesh, ISTBar and BearShare adware threats and one unknown spyware parasite. The analysis showed that 182 detected files (all of them are harmless .htm web pages and Java scripts) actually belong to fully legitimate Oracle database software and not to IMesh adware, which was never installed to our test computer. The updreg.exe file is related to Creative sound card drivers and is not a spyware component. Two detected registry entries were installed by legitimate Adobe Photoshop CS program and harmless eMule file sharing application. Furthermore, SecureMYpc Spyware Defense and Removal recognized the Internet Explorer default home page changed by the user to standard about:blank address as a result of a possible browser hijack. See a screenshot below.
The program uses ineffective scan engine, which “compares directory images rather then individual files”. Although this technique allows to optimize scan process and reduce time it takes, it causes false positives.
Free version of SecureMYpc Spyware Defense and Removal removes all the critical objects it finds. However, it uses an outdated spyware definitions database, which cannot be renewed, because updates are available only for registered users. See another screenshot.
The program’s official web site is www.gsiconcepts.com.
SecureMYpc Spyware Defense and Removal deceives the user and cannot protect your privacy and security. Following its instructions may damage the entire system, but not eliminate spyware parasites. We DO NOT recommend purchasing and using this program.
