Hello,
Can you please help me, I had previously downloaded System Security, now everytime I log on I get system security screen scanning my PC, but they do not remove the viruses from my PC.

It says activate system security.

Can I download another free trial

Many thanks in advance

System Security is malware and it is brutal, but there is an easy, free fix. This program just made my day! I've spent 6 hours trying to get rid of System Security. All you do is download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware program, run it for free, and voila! - GONE after the reboot!!! You can find the URL by Googling the name. I have nothing to do with this program, but I sure am happy someone invented it. I wanted to give back to the community so that's why I'm letting everyone know. Good luck!

Jeff, I downloaded the Malwarebytes, but I am unable to access the program after installation and rebooting. It doesn't even acknowledge the program as having been installed. Now What???

Start the computer up in Safe Mode. (usually get this option if you do a hard shutdown... like by holding down the power button for 10 seconds... when you restart choose safe mode).

then click Start and choose Run.

In the Run window type MSCONFIG

Go to the Startup tab and sort by Manufacturer (click on it to sort... click twice to bring the Unknowns to the top)

Next uncheck the 17408904 Item.

Finally notice the location of this item and go and delete it... it is like in c:/programdata.

Restart the computer normally.

THANK YOU! this worked for me. I was one of the individuals who could not open up any program or use the CTRL ALT DELETE function because system security was blocking it. The only difference for me was the the file i deleted was a different 8 digit number than Chad's. instead of 17408904, mine was 16522034. Just uncheck, apply, and then delelete the file when you find it after the restart. thank you so much man

my 8 digit name was 31986431

As easy as it sounds, my uncle had this problem and he rang me as he's not very computer savvy.

We tried all sorts of Malyware programs none was successful, also went into the windows files deep inside and couldn't find the effected files.

How i managed to fix it in the end was a System Restore, this maybe not the best option for some people due to what it does. Basically it takes your pc back to a later date when your PC was working fine with no problems at all. So, if your pc is used for college/uni etc. Or it's a PC that you use to work from home than i advice you to get a CD and put all the latest important files that you have done before now and the date that the system restore will take your pc back too.

Ok, So Click..

>> Start <<

>> All Programs <<

>> Accessories <<

>> System Tools <<

>> System Restore <<

Here, depending on your operating system (Windows 2000, XP or Vista) you will see something along the lines of "Restore my pc to an earlier date" and "create a restore point" etc.

Anyways, click "Restore my pc to an earlier date".

Then, you should see a calender with dates (deeer) some of the dates will be highlighted, Pick a date to a time that you know your pc didn't have this "system security 4.51". If you can't remember, then you'll just have to estimate and go back as far as you like.

Then, when you're happy with the date etc. click Next. Depending no how far you've chosen to go back and how much information your pc has gathered since now and your restore date and your PC spec and age it can take anywhere from 5 minutes to half hour or longer.

Hope it helps, Pompey.

Didn't find the answer you are looking for?

Ask a question
hello,
do you want to know how to terminate system security?
ok, I will show you:
open system security and go to its support page...
(upper right)
(this small steps are kind of short!)
ok now click on Remind Serial
enter your email and submit
wait atleast 5 min and open your email
And tada! you will have a free registered, unpaid, full-version, programme!
But it does not do any thing to your computer for terminating viruses.

NOW, FOR THE TERMINATION PART:

its pretty simple, just go to add/remove programme and remove it.

Hi :)

I would boot up from Cd and do a virus scan straight from the Cd, of course this would need to be done using a Linux Cd as i don't think Windows have an option like that. Alternatively pull the hard-drive out of the other machine and plug it into your currently uninfected one and boot into the normal OS for that, then do the scan on the "new" drive. Another option would be to network the machines together and do a virus scan over the network but i'm not sure Windows antivirus scanners allow that option.
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Antivirus
http://librenix.com/?inode=21

The "boot into a Linux Cd" option is the safest as it involves least contact between the infected machine and any others.

When you download Ubuntu from
http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/download
then make a cd of it by double-clicking on the iso file, this guide might help
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BurningIsoHowto
i tend to find the cheapest "write once" cds that you can only get in blocks of 10 or more are better for this than more expensive cds and dvds tend to be really rubbish for this. Anyway once you have the cd then boot up from it to the menu with "Try Ubuntu without changes to this machine", if you don't get that menu then this guide might help
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootFromCD
Choosing the "Try Ubuntu ... " option should get you to a working desktop which we call a "LiveCd session", if it works ;) Most versions of linux have this feature although they don't all have such a fancy menu. Ubuntu's LiveCd has firefox on the top taskbar and should have worked out your internet connection so having got a LiveCd session working you should be able to surf around and check that Ubuntu is going to work easily on the machine. Once that's working then install "clamav" and "clamtk" to the LiveCd session by going up to the top taskbar and click on

System - Administration - Synaptic Package Manager

use either search tool to find "clam". Then selecting the components "clamav" and "clamtk" should drag in all the things you need to do a good scan of your Windows drive. Note that Synaptic will show you descriptions of what those components do so you can double-check what i am advising. Clamscan can find infected files and help you Quarantine them but you might then need to google for replacements to fully fix the broken Windows - perhaps you might be able to copy across thing like "hal.dll" and stuff from the other machine if that's one of the infected files. Note that when you switch off the machine and take the Ubuntu (or other linux) Cd out of the machine then it will forget everything you installed to the LiveCd session and everything you saved to the desktop or into folders such as "Documents" but everything you did to the hard-drive will remain of course.

For a full proper install of Ubuntu (or other flavour of linux) probably the best way is a proper dual-boot install to keep Windows (and all your data) available. you can always copy your data across afterwards and remove Windows completely but most of us are quite happy keeping the dual-boot option ;)
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WindowsDualBoot

Oh a few links you might find interesting
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Antivirus
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SwitchingToUbuntu/FromWindows
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SwitchingToUbuntu
http://librenix.com/?inode=21

If your machine doesn't have enough horse-power (800MHz cpu, 512Mb ram, 15Gb hard-drive space free) then one of my other favourite flavours of linux might be better. Wolvix, i really like the older Hunter 1.1.0 as it has OpenOffice and the full Firefox already included
https://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=wolvix
or sliTaz, mostly french, a tiny distro of only 30Mb
https://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=slitaz
or Kongoni, mostly african
https://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=kongoni
and sometimes enjoy the challenges of the friendly bunch at TinyCore
https://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=tinycore
I think TinyCore is even tinier than sliTaz but needs a bit more building up which can be fun :) It's very fast.
But the best plan is to hunt around
https://distrowatch.com/
and just try out anything that catches your eye as a demo, LiveCd version :)

I hope something here helps!
Good luck and regards from
Tom :)

i too just got this, at first i was a little shaken up by the fact that it wouldnt let me open any programs, or uninstall anything. could not open task manager, could not do anything but open IE and control panel, what you have to do is go into safe mode WITHOUT NETWORKING, and also just for a security sake unplug your internet connection. now, once you are in safe mode,

> run
>type in msconfig
>find an application on the left which is a series of random numbers, it will be different for everyone. mine was 187463782
> uncheck it, and look and see where the file path is, usually it will be in C:/Documents and settings/all users/application data
> now depending on you're set up you might not be able to see application data.
> go to tools
> folder options
>view
>then go down to hidden files and folders, click show hidden files and folders
>exit out of folder options
>click application data
>then find the folder with that same sequence of numbers that you saw previously
> WARNING: DO NOT DELETE ANY OTHER FOLDER WITH RANDOM NUMBERS, SOME ARE CRITICAL SYSTEM FOLDERS.
>once that is gone, delete it from your recycling bin, restart normally and you are good to go. any questions or trouble feel free to email me @ Jsanchez2@email.itt-tech.edu

good luck
