I accidently downloaded an adware program that seems to be some type of virus, it’s called System Security Version 4.52.? I keep getting popups and warning? messages on my screen. I know this is some type of virus so how can I remove it?
My taskbar at the bottom of the screen? (by the clock in the lower right hand
corner) has the logo. It’s a small shield with yellow and orange stripes. I
cannot access my Add/Remove programs to uninstall. Please advise. Thanks

I know I’m stating the obvious when I say how viruses or programs that install themselves on your computers annoy me, but the ones that make it more difficult take the cake.? I envy their resilience and determination to stay on the machine to continue corrupting it even further, it becomes a big pain after a couple cute attempts to get rid of it.

System Security Version 4.52 is an application that uses Trojans and? dirty friends to trick you to believe it is a useful and safe program.? As you’ve found, System Security is dangerous for you and your PC so remove it as soon as possible

In your case, lets try another program that will help remove System Security Version 4.52.? I like to sit back and grab a beverage to watch this program giving me a sense of pride as the files are wiped away from my machine.

I’d like you to start by downloading the program: Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware. I consider this one of my favorite programs on my PC as it helps destroy these stubborn infections that refuse to go!

Please download Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware

  • Double Click mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
  • If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
  • Once the program has loaded, select “Perform Quick Scan”, then click Scan.
  • The scan may take some time to finish, so please be patient.
  • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected. <- very important
  • When disinfection is completed, a log will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to Restart. (See Extra Note)
  • The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM. (You may need this for a later post on the forums!)

Extra Note:If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts, click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process, if asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately

This should get you free from the bind of the System Security.? Post back with your success for other members to see how it turned out for you.? I highly recommend more caution when browsing around and downloading cleaners that promise a clean computer or anti-virus protection.? A quick Google of the name can show you other thoughts or recommendations on installing these programs!
