How to Remove Win 7 Security Cleaner Pro Firewall Alert?
Win 7 Security Cleaner Pro virus firewall alert is a fraudulent anti-virus application that tricks PC users into paying money for a “licensed” version of the software that does not work. It is Vista Security Cleaner Pro virus if your system is Windows Vista and there is XP Security Cleaner Pro Virus in Windows XP. A true anti-virus program works to protect the user from viruses, malware, and spyware, but this attack does the complete opposite. It makes its way into the users system and then pops up as if it was an original program that cam with the computer. Referred to as a “Rean Baravix” virus, because it appears in several different names, all claiming to be real anti-virus and anti-spyware programs. They will continue to post warning messages of possible threats and list off fake virus names in an attempt to scare the user into purchasing a license in order to run the program and remove the threats.
Have the Win 7 Security Cleaner Pro virus right now and I’m stuck and i’m trying to get rid of it, i was on a word doc, and it suddenly reverted back to my desktop with only the background picture and then the screen appeared that i cant get down. yeah I tried that yesterday with another solution but it wasn’t working out for me but I tried to to get into safe mode with a command prompt but I didn’t know the admin password. That drives me mad, why so many people hacked by this rogue software?
The Win 7 Security Cleaner Pro virus is a fake warning attack that attempts to trick the computer user into buying virus removal software after displaying fake virus detection messages. It displays a message that claims to have detected malware on the computer and if the option to remove these threats is selected it will state that the full version of the virus removal software needs to be purchased in order to complete the clean up. The fake scan results are also further enhanced with fake warning messages warning the user that the PC is infected with many different threats.
Even real virus scanning tools have a hard time detecting the spyware, so many times the user isn’t aware that there is a problem until the warning messages pop up, but these often trick some users into thinking that they are legitimate warnings and they pay for the license activation only to realize that they have been scammed by hackers. We are having a problem with Win 7 Security Cleaner. We have not paid to install it, but we must have run a scan. Now it blocks everything. I worked through the online instructions, but it will not let me run regedit. This virus apparently got loaded on my laptop and I need to remove and also was concerned with the information that it will completely destroy my computer.
Each time to computer is started the Win 7 Security Cleaner Pro virus will trigger the fake virus scan and then there will be pop ups that warn of virus detections. The virus will even disable some programs so they will not work, further making the users believe that they are indeed infected with a virus, and out of fear they will quickly “activate” the fake software. The warning screen looks like an authentic anti-virus program, making it easier for the hackers to convince unsuspecting users to pay the activation fee for the software.
None of the messages that the Win 7 Security Cleaner Pro virus displays are real and the hackers have these messages pop up in order to scare the user into “purchasing” the full version of the fake software. This enables them to steal credit card details form thousands of users daily. To the average computer user the warning messages look authentic and the entire virus looks like real software. Many people submit their payment information because they do not want to risk their PC health but in reality they just handed over their credit card information to criminals that will use it to commit fraud.
