Jenny asks…

How do I get rid of the Security Suite virus?

I’ve downloaded all different kinds of antispyware and anti-malware and scanned over and over but I can’t get rid of it. I’ve followed all the instructions on google but still nothing. Anybody have any experience with this?

If you have recently infected with the legitimate-looking Security Suite virus you are probably wondering how to remove it, well the good news is that it is part of the Antivir Solution Pro rogue family, therefore can be removed in a very similar way.

The first thing you need to do is download a few utilities from the Internet (from another PC), all of which are free, these are CCleaner (here), rkill.com (here) and Malwarebytes AntiMalware (here), when they are downloaded burn the files to a CD, if you do not have another computer with a CD burner you can always download these files when you have booted into Safe Mode with Networking (see below).

Now on the infected PC, turn the PC on and whilst it is booing press the F8 key constantly, before the operating system loading screen appears you should get a choice of different boot options, one of which says “Safe Mode with Networking”, choose this option and wait for the desktop to load, if you are having trouble with this step check out this link.

Once you are at your desktop put in your CD and copy the downloaded files to your desktop. The first thing you must do is open Internet Explorer (even if you run an alternative web browser), once loaded go to tools and choose internet options, a windows should appear, click on the connections tab and then click LAN settings, here you should uncheck the box next to “Use a proxy server for your LAN”, once done click OK, then on the next windows click OK again.

Now install CCleaner, there are no custom options you need to choose, so just click next, ok etc, one installed open CCleaner click on the Cleaner button on the left and select run cleaner (this will delete all file build up on your computer, including removing all items in your recycle bin and cookies etc).

Now run rkill, this will stop any processes associated with the infection, this process may take some time however is essential, if any popups say that rkill is an infection they are fake warnings.

Now install Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware, again there are no custom settings to worry about just click next, next, continue etc. Once installed run the program and click on the update tab, click update to ensure that you have the latest definitions installed, now click on the scanner tab and perform a full scan, this will take some time but will locate any infected files on your PC, when the scan if finished click OK, and then click the show results button, ensure that all of the infections are ticked and then press the Remove Selected button, your computer may need to restart to finish the process, however when it reboots the infection should be no more.

Once your PC seems fine try to ensure that your antivirus software is up-to-date and configured to run regular scans, also always install Windows Updates as these patch critical security vulnerabilities.

If you are still having problems with this infection check out the source link below.

Hey!

Hope I can Help. I have used all the available free antivirus software available..although I do not recommend plain antivirus because it does not usually protect you against spyware nor has a good firewall I do realyze it is nesessary for some people.

Not to knock on avg or avast but ive had terrible luck with the latest versions of them. I highly recommend you give PC TOOLS a try. Its actually what I use on my laptop. It works fine and doesnt slow me down.

Get your FREE download here.

☆ Download = http://www.pctools.com/

NOW.. If you do not have one already you should get a firewall and antispyware program to go along with your antivirus. Both can be obtained for free.

ANTISPYWARE = the best program for this is MALWAREBYTES. FREE.
☆ DOWNLOAD = http://malwarebytes.org/

FIREWALL = The best ive used is WEBROOT FIREWALL. FREE.
