Total Vista Security
If you are looking for a powerful and effective security tool to complement your PC’s security, then keep far away from Total Vista Security. This rogue antispyware application was not designed to be of any benefit to an infected PC, but instead to act as a vehicle with which criminal online developers rip off hardworking consumers. Total Vista Security is proven not to have the ability to identify, quarantine or remove any type of threat from the PC, and is nothing more than a malicious threat in itself.
Total Vista Security will enter the PC slyly, and remain hidden until such time that it is ready to start its attack on the system. This will usually be heralded by Total Vista Security editing the registry entries so as to launch each time Windows runs. It will then spam the user with a fake system scan each time he logs on to Windows. This fake system scan will yield various fake results, informing the user that his system is under a severe attack. Some of the fake threats reported on include Trojan-Spy.HTML.Bankdraud, DoS.Win32.DieWar, Exploit.CodeBase.Exec and Trojan-Proxy.Win32.Agent.x.
This is not all symptoms the user can expect from this incessant and dangerous rogue. Other symptoms reportedly associated with this rogue includes the user receiving a relentless barrage of fake security notifications in the form of pop up ads, blocked Internet connections and poor system performance. Users infected with Total Vista Security also reported being unable to launch any executable on the system, as well as increased erratic system behavior.
If you suspect infection get rid of Total Vista Security immediately and take back control of your system. This will limit the damage the rogue will be able to cause the system. Invest in properly functioning security software in order to provide adequate protection for your system against similar future attacks and threats.
