Win 7 Home Security 2011.

Win 7 Home Security 2011 is a fake antivirus program created to urge the user to buy the full version of Win 7 Home Security 2011 in order to earn some profit.
One might wonder what is Win 7 Home Security 2011 that is distributed by supposedly Windows update. In fact, it is a scam that only pretends being made or offered by Microsoft and in fact that program is downright malicious. 
Win 7 Home Security 2011 installs hidden in faked Windows 7 updates (in other versions of OS it will use appropriate name). Then this malware will stop execution of legitimate programs and start showing its alerts to convince you into paying for its “full version” which would supposedly protect from internet threats and parasites on PC. Alerts will tell you, that system security is in danger, or that unnamed spyware, keyloggers and trojans are present, or that hacker attack is going on. But all these Win 7 Home Security alerts lack detail and substance, and should be ignored.

If you click on one of the Win 7 Home Security 2011 alerts, you will be greeted by main window of this parasite. A scan is suggested, which would detect infections in lots of legitimate and clean programs. It will suggest purchasing full version of Win 7 Home Security, but you should not do that – this is a trick to get your credit card details.
Additionally, Win 7 Home Security 2011 will try to prevent you from getting help online. During its operation, it will block visiting legitimate websites, and try to redirect you to sites selling malware. 

It is clear, that Win 7 Home Security 2011 should be removed from the PC. Avoid giving credit card details to makers of this malware at any cost.


Kill malicious Processes from Task Manager:
  • [random].exe
Location of the infection:
  1. %AppData%\Local\[random].exe
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce "[random]" 
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options\msseces.exe "Debugger" = 'svchost.exe'
Although it is possible to manually remove Win 7 Home Security 2011, such activity can permanently damage your system if any mistakes are made in the process, as advanced spyware parasites are able to automatically repair themselves if not completely removed. Thus, manual spyware removal is recommended for experienced users only, such as IT specialists or highly qualified system administrators. For other users, we recommend  malware and spyware removal applications.

After removing all these files, restart your computer and the issue will be fixed. And don’t forget to do update your Security Software, check the Firewall Settings and the Operating System and finally do a full system scan with the Security Software.
