Security Monitor 2012
If you want to keep your computer safe and clean you have to stay away from things like Security Monitor 2012.

Security Monitor 2012 steals your money when you pay for the full version of the program, processing your payment through this website: SECURE.ONLINESTARPAYMENT.COM.

It means that if you are forcefully redirected to NET-TESTNEWHARD.US website, and you land there, the rogue’s download is initiated automatically and Security Monitor 2012 is installed automatically.

This list should convince you that you must purchase the full version of Security Monitor 2012, to get rid of these parasites.
Apart from the list Security Monitor 2012 also spams you with a variety fake security messages such as:

The rogue even gives you the website address: SECURITY MONITOR2012.COM; that should project the program as an application you can trust.
However, if you have Security Monitor 2012 in your computer, you must close all the applications and windows that are related to it and then ignore the fake security alert messages received from the rogue. It only wants to push you into paying for a product that does not exist. Rather than that, use the following activation key to “register” Security Monitor 2012:
