Home Security Solutions - How to remove?
What is Home Security Solutions?
Home Security Solutions is a fake antivirus that impersonates legitimate Microsoft Software. It belongs to FakeVimes family of Rogue parasites. Similar to other kinds of fake antiviruses, it enters computers though infected emails or through browser vulnerabilities while visiting infected websites. Sometimes one can’t tell the exact place infection took place, but in many cases Home Security Solution infection is a result of no antivirus or anti-malware software. This malware tries to convince user that the PC is heavily infected (which is kind of true), and that one has to purchase its full version, which is far from true. Under no conditions purchase Home Security Solution or other fake antivirus, as this will fund production of similar software.
Home Security Solutions will “scan” PC on startup and display lots of fake infections found. The infections will be displayed in popup like this:
Attention! 20 infected files detected!
Scan Result: Your computer is infected!
Recommended: click “Remove All” button to erase all infected files and protect your PC
The files mentioned do not exist and thus can not harm your PC. However, Home Security Essentials stops antiviruses from launching, disables some system programs like task manager. Thus this is a rogue which has to be removed from PC as it limits system security and prevents you from using your computer normally.
