While Win 7 Security 2012 boasts that it is a trustworthy PC security program that can and will detect security threats on your PC system, it is actually one of the types of threats that it claims to detect and ward off. Disguising itself as a genuine PC security software application, Win 7 Security 2012 actually bears a harmful Trojan virus that it uses to invade and infiltrate unsuspecting users’ PC systems, without either their knowledge or approval. Win 7 Security 2012 is a malicious scareware program and dangerous rogue application. If you find that your computer has become infected with Win 7 Security 2012, it is important that you take the necessary steps to remove this rogue threat immediately.

Brought to you by the same cyber crooks that created some of the most malicious and dangerous rogue applications from early 2011, Win 7 Security 2012 can alter its application’s name based on the operating systems of the PCs that it infects.

Win 7 Security 2012 is able to alter its executable file name from PC to PC. This ability to change its name from OS to OS, from PC to PC, sets Win 7 Security 2012 apart from other rogue anti-spyware programs. In effect, this means that when this particular rogue application infects a PC with a Windows Vista operating system, it will display the name Vista Security 2012; but when it infects a system running Windows XP, it will display the name, XP Security 2012. Again, if an infected system uses the Windows 7 OS, it will display the name, Win 7 Security 2012. The reason for this capability seems to be that it adds a further element of supposed legitimacy to this fake application by making it seem as if Win 7 Security 2012 is associated with the PC’s operating system.

Except for being slightly more sophisticated and more difficult to remove from compromised systems, Win 7 Security 2012, as well as its clone-like applications: XP Security 2012 and Vista Security are little more than carbon copies of these older models.

Win 7 Security 2012 is a Dangerous Rogue Program

With the constantly evolving, parasitic growth-type trend that is currently being employed by malware creators, it is increasingly more and more difficult to spot a rogue look-alike application, and Win 7 Security 2012 is no exception. Win 7 Security 2012 was created and designed to mimic a legitimate PC security program and is definitively deceptive in its pretender role.

Win 7 Security 2012 is actually a nasty PC infection that utilizes a harmful Trojan and is a rogue application that is intent on stealing as much of your hard earned money as it can.
