What is Windows Security Virus?
Windows Security Virus is rogue security software that will block various websites (e.g. start.qip.ru, yandex.com, google.com, etc.) and present you with a fake warning claiming that your system is heavily infected with malicious software and you will not be able to browse the web unless you eliminate them from your computer. Do not believe any word of this fake message because Windows Security Virus just seeks to convince you that your system is full of malware. The researchers of anti-spyware-101.com have implemented a research and found out that this infection just seeks to extort money from innocent computer uses. Thus, it is not surprising that it uses a fake antivirus/system scanner. Do you want to browse the web freely again? If so, you will have to remove Windows Security Virus from the system.
How does Windows Security Virus act?
The main reason why the warning appears on your screen is to convince you to pay money (from 4 to 6 dollars) for the removal of non-existent infections. As it is fake software, it is definitely not capable of erasing threats even if it happens that there are some of them on your system. Another reason why you should not pay any money is the fact that you will not only lose them, but also reveal credit card details to cyber criminals. Unfortunately, they might use them for unfair purposes. Have you already made the payment? If so, you should definitely call your credit card issuer and cancel it. In order not to infect your system with similar threats, we highly recommend that you do not download untrustworthy applications, open emails sent by unknown senders, and ignore advertisements placed on suspicious websites. On top of this, you should not forget to acquire a reliable security tool and keep it enabled all the time.
The researchers of anti-spyware-101.com have found out that Windows Security Virus will add a file in %APPDATA% and modify the Host file in order to block the access to various websites. Even though the majority of these websites are Russian, some of them are commonly used all around the world (e.g. google.com). As Windows Security Virus does many changes on your system, it is not surprising that it will be able to act behind your back. As the research has shown, this rogue software might connect to the internet without your permission and even slow down the internet connection considerably. Thus, you should delete it as soon as possible.
