iSecurity is a Trojan infection that is closely related to fake antivirus programs. It promotes rogue antispyware applications, and unless you remove iSecurity from your computer, you will be in a big trouble. There are many ways for the Trojan to arrive at your system, but most of the time iSecurity is distributed via adult websites and peer-to-peer sharing software. It is important that you keep your built-in security system up to date, because this Trojan can make use of security loopholes and browser add-on vulnerabilities to get into your computer. Also, iSecurity can be embedded in executables that you download from infected websites and the moment you run these executable files, you initiate the Trojan installation.
When iSecurity is installed, it is configured to run automatically at system startup, and it generates a fake Windows Security Center screen, that claims your computer is exposed to Spyware infections. You are given a list of programs to choose from, as iSecurity tries to convince to install them. There are quite a few fake antivirus programs distributed and promoted by this Trojan, including Advanced XP Defender, AdvancedXPFixer, WinIFixer and others. To make it seem as though your system is in serious danger, iSecurity also displays the following system notification:
Do not click YES and close the fake Windows Security Center window immediately. If you download any of the programs on the list, you will be infected with fake antivirus application. Fake AVs are very resilient in trying to push innocent users into purchasing full versions of these programs. In the end, the main goal of rogue antispyware is financial goal, and you definitely wouldn’t want o be robbed by one of these malicious programs.
Therefore, you have to remove iSecurity from your computer right now. Acquire a powerful antimalware tool to terminate the Trojan automatically, because manual removal can prove to be too complicated for an average computer user. Invest in a computer security program of choice to ensure that your system is safeguarded against similar infections.
