Security Sphere 2012

It can be easy to fall for the clever lies used by Security Sphere 2012 to rip you off. The truth is this rogue antispyware application derives from the same family of rogues as the hotly detested Personal Shield Pro and Security Shield, and this alone should speak to its validity.

Of course Security Sphere 2012 will attempt to convince its victims of its legitimacy, but that does not change the fact that it is a rubbish rogue application unable to protect the PC against any type of threat.

If you wonder how Security Sphere 2012 manages to enter your PC, it makes use of various nefarious tactics to root its infection into the PC. This may range from using browser hijacking websites to bogus online malware scanners. As of late it has also been reported that Security Sphere 2012 makes use of infected online flash ads to facilitate its infiltration of the system.

Once Security Sphere 2012 manages to root itself into the system it will start its attack by initiating a fake security scan. This scan will warn the user of nonexistent threats on the PC and will inform the user that he needs to purchase Security Sphere 2012 in order to stave off these threats. It will then also spam the user with various fake security alerts designed to panic the user into paying for Security Sphere 2012. Some of the fake alerts read as follows:

Warning: Your computer is infected
Detected spyware infection!
Click this message to install the last update of security software...

Security Sphere 2012 Warning

Other annoying symptoms instigated by Security Sphere 2012 include the user being unable to connect to the Internet, and being disallowed to use any applications on the system. In fact each time the user attempts to launch an application on the infected PC, he will receive the following bogus alert:

Application cannot be executed. The file notepad.exe is infected.
Please activate your antivirus software.

The same will happen every time the user attempts to log on to a web browser. Security Sphere 2012 will generate the following error message:

Warning message from Internet browser This page under virus attack This may crash your system.
This may be caused by:
Virus content founded at this site trying to install its components.
Malicious & unknown network processes are determined.
Your system is under virus attack
Negative references from other citizens concerning this web page
Your system ports and backdoors have been checked by visited page for external access.
Obtain a license of "Security Sphere 2012" to protect your PC for the safest browsing Internet pages (desirable)
Launch spyware, virus and malware scanning process.
Keep browsing

Other symptoms range from randomly generated and deleted Desktop items, poor system performance and increased erratic system performance. Enter the following security key into the rogue to stop these annoying symptoms from crippling the system, and this will make it easier to get rid of Security Sphere 2012:


The user will also experience annoying symptoms thanks to the Security Sphere 2012 infection. These range from being unable to connect to the Internet to extremely poor system performance. Use a genuine security tool which will not only erase Security Sphere 2012 but also protect against similar attacks in future.


Can’t load any single program in your computer? SpyHunter doesn’t work as well? That is because a malicious file which runs in the memory does not allow you to launch any program. To bypass the issue you need to download SpyHunter and then run the installer file. To save the installer file in your computer, you need to select "Save As" instead of "Run", when you click to download the program. If your internet browser does not work because of the infection, get SpyHunter on an absolutely clean computer and then transfer it into a USB drive or a DVD. Then insert the disk or the USB into your infected computer and install SpyHunter. When you are done, run the malware scanner to catch the infection.

Sometimes Security Sphere 2012 might not allow you to run the installer file. Do no panic; try running it for as many times as necessary until eventually SpyHunter gets through Security Sphere 2012’s block. When SpyHunter is finally installed, use it to crush the rogue and delete it from your computer.
