E-Set Antivirus 2011

When dealing with unknown or suspicious applications, it’s best to err on the side of caution, especially with E-Set Antivirus 2011. This rogue antispyware application, which derives from the same despicable family of rogues as Fake AVG Antivirus 2011, tries to fool its victims into accepting it as legitimate by playing on the name of the popular ESET antivirus program. E-Set Antivirus 2011 is a fake security tool and has no affiliation with any other legitimate security program or application. Despite what this rogue would like its victims to believe, E-Set Antivirus 2011 has no ability to protect a system, nor to identify or remove any type of threat or infection from an infected PC.

Seditious browser hijacking websites and bogus online malware scanners promote the E-Set Antivirus 2011 rogueware. E-Set Antivirus 2011 has also been known to use other avenues of spreading its Trojans and malware, including bundling it together with other legitimate security updates and downloads obtainable from third party websites.

E-Set Antivirus 2011’s infiltration of the system is done so surreptitiously that the user will be unaware of its presence until such time that it decides to start its attack on the PC. This makes it that much harder to identify and remove E-Set Antivirus 2011 from the system. The first clue the user will have as to the presence of E-Set Antivirus 2011 on the system will come from various falsely generated security messages aimed explicitly at panicking the user into paying for E-Set Antivirus 2011’s worthless software. Do not pay any attention to these fake warnings, as they are all completely without basis or merit. Be on the lookout for the following fake security alerts by E-Set Antivirus 2011:

Users who did not manage to get rid of E-Set Antivirus 2011 in time complained about various distressing and severely annoying symptoms on their infected PCs, most notably the inability to connect to the Internet. Although this is particularly annoying, there is a way to free your Internet connection, which will ultimately help you to erase E-Set Antivirus 2011 for good.

Depending which browser you use, navigate over to C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer. Once there, look for the Internet Explorer .exe file named iexplore.exe. Edit the name of the file by adding any other character, for instance iexplore_.exe or imexplore.exe. This can work on any other browser you might want to use it on. While E-Set Antivirus 2011 is looking to block the specific assigned processes of Internet browsers, editing their executable files will prevent E-Set Antivirus 2011 from detecting it and will allow you to connect to the Internet.

In order to effectively destroy E-Set Antivirus 2011 from your PC and regain control of what is rightfully yours you should invest in a genuine security tool which will be able to do just that. This will not only eliminate E-Set Antivirus 2011 from your system, but continue to offer you future protection against similar threats and attacks.
