What Is The Security Suite Virus?

The Security Suite Virus is an aggressive rogue anti-spyware application that can secretly find it’s way onto your system through a Trojan.

Once there it then configures itself to run automatically whenever your computer boots up.

Whilst the Security Suite Virus is running it will automatically perform a fake system scan.

Like other scareware, once Security Suite Virus has performed this fake scan it will display a grossly exaggerated number of alleged infections on your machine.

It will then prompt you to purchase a program to remove those infections, all or many of which probably never existed in the first place.

Additionally, Security Suite Virus may also disable any security software you already have installed as well as hijacking your browser.

How Can Security Suite Virus Get On My Computer?

Most people who get infected with this application do not realise how it happened.

The first sign of an infection will often be poor PC performance, a hijacked browser, or an invitation to buy the ‘solution’ after a ‘scan’ has been run.

One of the best ways of avoiding this malware is to have quality protection on your computer in the first place.

A good antivirus program isn’t 100% certain to stop it, but it certainly helps!

(When choosing an antivirus program, pick one that offers real-time protection)

How Can I Remove Security Suite Virus?

If you have the Security Suite Virus and cannot kill it off with your existing security software then you may be able to get rid of it through deleting registry entries and a couple of files.

(Such a course of action is not recommended for the novice user though – making mistakes with registry settings can really mess your computer up!)

If you feel confident enough to proceed then I would recommend backing your registry up before doing anything else.

Next, double check what you are about to do, then proceed very carefully…

The registry entries that you need to delete are –

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\wnxmal

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Download “RunInvalidSignatures” = “1″

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\PhishingFilter “Enabled” = “0″

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings “ProxyOverride” = “”

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings “ProxyServer” = “http=127.0.0.1:6522″

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\
Associations “LowRiskFileTypes” = “.exe”

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\
Attachments “SaveZoneInformation” = “1″

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run “{random}”

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam\MUICache “%UserProfile%\Desktop\flash_player_installer\flash_player_installer.exe”

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run “{random}”

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Download “CheckExeSignatures” = “no”

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings “ProxyEnable” =”1″

You will also need to delete the following files –

%UserProfile%\Local Settings\Application Data\{random}\

%UserProfile%\Local Settings\Application Data\\{random}shdw.exe

If you follow the above instructions carefully then you should now be rid of the Security Suite Virus.
