Windows System Security Internet Attack

System Security is a fake anti-virus program that attacks the Windows operating system. This program is actually a spyware that infects computers via the Internet and generates fake and misleading pop-ups that show viruses on the hard drive. 

The alerts urge you to pay for and install System Security to get rid of the parasites. However, System Security does not have a virus detection and removal engine. It's a scam targeted at inexperienced users. You need to remove System Security from your computer to stop its attacks against your Windows operating system.

  1. Press the "Ctrl," "Shift" and "Esc" keys at the same time to start the Task Manager.
  2. Click the "Processes" tab in the Task Manager's window.
  3. Select "1632575944.exe" from the list of the current processes and click "End Process."
  4. Close the Task Manager.
  5. Remove Registry Entries
    Go to the "Start" menu, type "regedit" in the "Start Search" box and press "Enter" to start the Registry Editor.

    Browse to and delete the following registry entry:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run "1632575944"

    Close the Registry Editor.

  6. Find and Delete Files
  7. Go to the "Start" menu, type "1632575944.exe" in the "Start Search" box and press "Enter." Delete all search results.
  8. Repeat Step 1 for "config.udb," "init.udb," "English.lng," "German.lng," "Spanish.lng," "System Security.lnk," "538654387" and "System Security."
Restart your computer. The malware will be gone.

Tips & Warnings
  1. Back up the system registry before removing the registry entries. Delete only the listed registry entries to avoid damage to the operating system.
