Scammers continue to force-feed their rogue security programs to unsuspecting PC users. The latest offering is Internet Security Essentials, a fake anti-spyware program that belongs to the rogueware family with relatives like Internet Defender and Security DefenderWith so many fake anti-spyware and anti-virus programs popping up daily, it is surprising how many PC users continue to be mislead. Sadly, some PC users continue to roam the network without protection and wait until their systems are infected before changing their ways. Such irresponsible thinking keeps scammers and thieves in business.

Cybercriminals work just as hard for their ill-gotten money as you do, if not harder. They work nonstop and are constantly looking for ways to defraud new victims. These thieves are clever and are exploiting the vulnerabilities of everything, including human behavior. Cybercriminals have tapped into social engineering and social networking and are abusing any loopholes in software applications.

Scare tactics are used to get PC users to provide their credit card information and other important data. Internet Security Essentials and other rogue security programs flooding the Internet, bombard victims with countless pop-ups and alerts that smell of danger. PC users are told and shown that their system is under a virus attack, and without the help of Internet Security Essentials, there will be serious harm to their assets. Those who encounter the malicious fireworks, wish it were not true, however, seeing is believing, and Internet Security Essentials displays a great show!

Upon entry into your system, Trojan horses will do an elaborate setup that involves disabling your Desktop, Task Manager and legitimate security measures. Trojans will also hijack your browser and create fictitious registry entries and system files to help sell a dismal picture of gloom and doom.

When signaled by a reboot, Internet Security Essentials’ plan will be put into play. Alerts via pop-ups will go off like the 4th of July, and will include messages like:

Security Essentials Alert
Potential Threat Details
Security Essentials detected potential threats that might compromise your private or damage your computer. Your access to these items may be suspended until you take an action. Click 'show details' to learn more.


Do not be alarmed, these alerts are fake and so is Internet Security Essentials. The fireworks you are seeing, including the long list of fake infected files and viruses, were orchestrated just for you! Scamming is big business and scammers need you, your money and your computer to use as an unauthorized scamming center. Do not buy into their deceit.

Stop the madness and let scammers know you mean business, too! Spoil their plans by shutting down your system and rebooting in safe mode with networking. This should allow you to bypass the agonizing shenanigans of Internet Security Essentials and its Trojan horse circus. If your legitimate anti-malware software is no longer working, download a new copy or transfer onto CD or flash drive and upload to your system. Sweep your system clean and get rid of temperamental pests like Internet Security Essentials and its virus pool.

While you can manually remove Internet Security Essentials by deleting bogus registry and system files, it probably is best to use a powerful anti-malware tool to avoid damaging key files. You also do not want to risk overlooking hidden Trojans who could retrigger the madness all over again.
