A-Secure 2015 Virus – Removal Instructions
A-Secure 2015 is a type of virus that infects computers running the Windows Operating System. A-Secure 2015 is considered to be rogue because it shows up on a computer as an antivirus program even though it is not. A-Secure 2015 will show that there are many infected files on the computer even though the files are not infected and may not even exist. After showing the user fake scan results and fake infected files, the A-Secure 2015 virus will ask for a credit card to pay for the full version so that the infected files will be removed. That is also a scam, as there are no infected files on the computer except the fake virus protection software.
The fee should never be paid, as then the A-Secure 2015 virus will have access to the credit card information, and the credit card information may be compromised and the user may experience credit card theft or identity theft. A-Secure 2015 can be downloaded onto any computer without the users’ knowledge. A-Secure 2015 can be distributed from hacked web sites, and often is downloaded when a fake popup shows up in the browser saying that flash must be updated to view the page or video.
A-Secure 2015 scares users into thinking that their files are infected, when the fake virus protection software is the only real threat. Once A-Secure 2015 is downloaded, it will be configured to automatically start running once the user logs into Windows. The virus will not allow computer applications to run normally once it has been infected. A-Secure 2015 will also disable Windows Update, Windows Security Center, and Windows Defender to protect itself from being detected and removed by a legitimate virus protection program.
A-Secure 2015 will display security alerts to try to scare the user into thinking their computer files are infected to try to get them to pay the fee for full access to the fake virus protection program. The virus will also infect and take over web browsers on an infected Windows computer. A-Secure 2015 will say that websites are not safe and try to prevent the user from searching the internet. The fake scan results and the warnings saying that websites are compromised can be safely ignored, as the messages are fake and just trying to scare the user. If A-Secure 2015 is left on a computer long enough, it will prevent Windows from functioning completely.
