How to remove Internet Security?
What is Internet Security?
Internet Security is a fake antivirus program that belongs to the same family as Internet Security 2012. It is a clone of the former program, omitting the year number in the name. It is one more program that displays falsified information and imitates checking your system for infections while in fact it cannot detect anything. The program is installed to a random system through Trojan viruses and it is straight away configured to start automatically when computer is rebooted.
Internet Security launches its scanner with every login to Windows. The program imitates looking for infections and warns that your system is badly infected. Unfortunately, since Internet Security is not able to detect real threats, it displays non-existing files and presents them as infections. The program uses generic names of parasites and this way it prevents computer users form getting any information about them. The “parasites” “detected” by this malware include W32.Blaster.Worm, Email-Worm.Brontok, W32/Child-Porn.PROXY/Server, Mal/Generic-A, various TrojanDownloader versions. It is unlikely that any of these parasites are on your system, except, ironically, the TrojanDownloader which downloades Internet Security malware in first place. However, it will not be detected.
In addition, Internet Security warns that your system is at risk by displaying various security notifications and pop up ads which inform about system threats and recommend activating Internet Security in order to protect your computer.
You should remove Internet Security from your system as soon as you notice it there. Have in mind that this malware can try to block your legitimate antispyware tools and block these executables, it will also kill browsers and most of other applications. However, There are several ways to remove Internet Security from your system without resorting to system reinstal.
Special instructions for removing fake Internet Security
- You will need to kill malware processes before launching any anti-malware program or downloading it. To do so
- Press Start->Run. Enter taskkill /F /IM isecurity.exe in the field and press enter. Repeat this step several times, till malware window closes.
- If the window does not close, try running taskkill /F /IM amsecure.exe . This is updated file name for the rogue’s 2013 version.
- Another way is to press ctrl+shift+esc. The command will open task explorer. Normally the latter should be killed by Internet Security malware. However, if you are quick enough to press “End program” button while your PC is busy, you can kill malware process too. Please note that this method is not the most reliable one.
- You can also fake-register malware with the key Y86REW-T75FD5-U9VBF4A or Y86REW-T75FD5-9VB4A and any email.
- Scan your PC with couple decent anti-malware programs to identify really infected files. I recommend Spyhunter or Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for that. Delete malware with full version of program or delete the file manually.
- Remove Malware startup entry by launching msconfig and unchecking the malware process from startup list.

Internet Security is classified as Rogue Anti-Spyware. After infecting a user’s system, it proceeds to scare its victim into buying the “product” by displaying fake security messages, stating that your computer is infected with spyware and only Internet Security can help you to remove it after you download the trial version. As soon as the victim downloads Internet Security trial version, it pretends to scan your computer and shows a grossly exaggerated amount of non-existent errors. Then, Internet Security offers to buy the full version to fix these false errors. If the user agrees, Internet Security does not only fix the errors, but it also takes the user’s money and may even install additional spyware into the victim’s computer.
Some Rogue Anti-Spyware, such as Internet Security, may offer users to buy it after the victim clicks on a banner or a pop-up while surfing the internet. Usually, a Trojan is installed to a victim’s computer after clicking on the advertisement. It then proceeds to download or even install Internet Security, which is another way for Rogue Anti-Spyware to spread itself.
Most of rogue Anti-Spyware, such as Internet Security, is nearly impossible to remove manually.
