Live Security Platinum

Live Security Platinum is a bogus security application which pretends that it is a security application. This malware is a clone of Smart Fortress 2012, Smart Protection 2012 and Personal Shield Pro. If you notice that your system does not work properly, and that you receive suspicious warning from this rogue, delete this infection at once. Live Security Platinum has been created to make you think that the system is full of such infections as Trojan.Win32.Agent.ado, Win32.Miewer.a and others which can be supposedly removed as soon as you active Live Security Platinum.

Do not make purchase of the rogue, because everything it does is a lie. Live Security Platinum simulates scans and present bogus infections such as mentioned previously. Moreover, it presents fake notifications to make you think that the system is at risk. Some of the notifications, which you should ignore, are presented:

Warning!
Application cannot be executed. The file rdpclip.exe is infected. Please active your antivirus software.

Security Monitor: WARNING!
Attention! System detected a potential hazard (TrojanSPM/LX) on your computer that may infect executable files. Your private information and PC safety is at risk.
To get rid of unwanted spyware and keep your computer safe you need to update your current security software.
Click Yes to download official intrusion detection system (IDS software).

In addition to simulated information, Live Security Platinum also impairs your computer’s system. This rogue is known as capable of disabling Task Manager and Registry Editor. The latter is important for manual removal of the rogue, because after the installation of the rogue, in Registry Editor, various malicious registry entries not allowing certain applications to run are created. The rogue might also limit access to the Internet. Theses impairments occur not because of the threats which you supposedly cannot remove, but because of the rogue’s intentions to swindle you out of your money. Live Security Platinum wants you to pay money for its imaginary full version, and this is way it attempts to force you to do so.

What you should actually do is remove this infection. We highly recommend you remove Live Security Platinum automatically which means that you have to use a powerful antispyware removal tool which will delete this infection and protect the system. The antispyware will delete the components of Live Security Platinum and will not leave anything related to it; in this way, the infection will not be regenerated.

UPDATE

Live Security Platinum is a fake antivirus tool which belongs to the WinWebSec family. If you want to get rid of this malware easily, you should disable the infection by registering it with the key provided:

64C665BE-4DE7-423B-A6B6-BC0172B25DF2.

The key will disable bogus notifications, which you should never trust. Some more are given below:

    The virus is stopping the administrator every time i download antivirus or something it asks for administrator conformation i hit continue then it wont download, the same as trying to delete files from the folder location it asks for permission i hit yes and it wont delete, it is also stopping me from accessing anything apart from internet explorer, my computer shuts itself down in safe mode and its a netbook so i cant use a recovery disk, can anybody lend us a hand?
