KvmSecure - How to remove?


KvmSecure is a rogue anti-spyware program, which plays the “recommended by Microsoft” card to make extortion an easier activity. Like almost every other rogue lurking the net today, KvmSecure makes it’s way to the system by using trojans, such as Zlob or Vundo. These trojans are an important part of KvmSecure’s campaign of disinformation: they mislead the user into believing he is infected and therefore in need of a spyware remover.

Once inside and active, KvmSecure will flood the user with popups and fake system notifications, supposedly to “inform” him that he is infected. The message looks like this:

“Spyware Threat. Your computer is infected with Spyware: Adware.Win32.Agent.rf, Packed.Win32.NSAnti.r, W32/Netsky-P. Remove All Spyware”

This statement is false, but by misleading the user, KvmSecure creates a reason for him to buy it’s “licensed version”, which is equally non-functional.

KvmSecure.com, the home of this parasite, suggests that KvmSecure is copying Microsoft’s design to gain credibility. The website is quite terrible: there are overlaping layers of text, the content is copied from somewhere else and there is no contact information available. KvmSecure uses “software-payments.com” as it’s payment system, but it is only 3 months old and generally doesn’t appear to be trustworthy. The domain KvmSecure.com is registered to PrivacyProtect.org, which is yet another rogue anti-spyware.

KvmSecure is a scam and should be treated as such: do NOT download or buy it and block KvmSecure.com using your HOSTS file.

Manual KvmSecure removal


Important Note: Although it is possible to manually remove KvmSecure, 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 using Reimage or other tools found on 2-viruses.com.

  1. I did not install KvmSecure, but it continually throws the fake Microsoft screen in Internet Explorer. How do I delete it from my computer so someone else doesn’t inadvertantly download it?
