Scan 119.


Scan 119, also known as Scan119 is a rogue antivirus application trying to convince consumers of its legitimacy.
Do not fall susceptible to this scamware. If you suspect your PC of having fallen foul of this harmful application, using properly functioning security tools is the only way you’ll be able to effectively delete Scan 119 off the system. Symptoms of an Scan 119 infection include sporadic system malfunction, random creation of Desktop icons, browser and search redirection and even blocked Internet connections and executables. Scan 119 will try everything in its power to panic the user into thinking his system is really compromised by seriously harmful threats.
It will bombard the user with many fake messages reporting on bogus threats supposedly running rampant on the system. Do not fall for this trickery, as the only harmful application is Scan 119. In order to fully regain control of your PC back, remove Scan 119 by making use of the power of updated and genuine security tools. This remains the most effective way of getting rid of Scan 119 and other similar threats, and consistently protects your system against future attacks.
Removal:
Kill malicious Processes from Task Manager: 
  • Scan119.exe
 Location of the infection:
  1. %UserProfile%\Application Data\Microsoft\[random].exe
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options\explorer.exe
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options\explorer.exe "Debugger" = "C:\Program Files\SCAN 119\Scan119.exe -d"
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\WinFD
Although it is possible to manually remove Scan 119, 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.
