Win 7 Security 2013

Win 7 Security 2013 is a rogue infection that seems to be reinventing itself every single year. There has been Win 7 Security 2010, Win 7 Security 2011, Win 7 Security 2012 and now we have Win 7 Security 2013. The reality is that, this threat comes from a huge cluster of rogue antispyware applications that scan the system during the installation and then changes their names based on what operating system the computer runs on. So, if you have Windows XP or Windows Vista, Win 7 Security 2013 will change its name into XP Security 2013 or Vista Security 2013.

So basically, all these rogues with different names are the same threat, it's just that they are marketed for users who use different operating systems. Other than that, the infection symptoms and the objective remain the same. All Win 7 Security 2013 strives for is easy financial gain. It makes use of email spam messages, online malware scanners and browser hijackers to get into your system.

Once Win 7 Security 2013 is installed on your computer, it modifies the registry so that the rogue can load automatically whenever you boot the system. Then, once the system loads, Win 7 Security 2013 pops up into your system and launches a fake system scan. The scan might look real, because Win 7 Security 2013 does like a composite part of your system, but the scan results are not real. All these viruses such as Email-Worm.JS.Gigger, P2P-Worm.Win32.Duload.a, Joke.1068 and so on - they do not exist in your system. Win 7 Security 2013 only wants you to think that they are responsible for erratic system behavior while in fact it is the rogue that makes your system acts weird.

Also, aside from the fake system scan, Win 7 Security 2013 floods the user with fake security notifications that ought to convince him that he simply must purchase the full program as well:

Needless to say, that you should ignore all of these messages and do something about Win 7 Security 2013 before it blocks your programs and the Internet connection. The rogue is perfectly capable of doing that, because it has a strong defense mechanism. Nevertheless, even if it starts blocking you from accessing various webpages, you can register Win 7 Security 2013 and make it "think" that you've actually purchased the license.


Copy and paste the code above into the rogue's registration window. Even though it does not REMOVE Win 7 Security 2013, it gives you some time to acquire a legitimate antimalware tool. When the rogue is registered, it no longer spams you with fake notifications and it is a lot easier to browse the Internet.
