Total Security - How to remove?
Total Security is a fake spyware remover, rogue anti-spyware application that uses misleading methods to convince you that your computer is seriously infected. It’s a replica of another notorious and fake anti-spyware application called System Security. TotalSecurity enters the system without user’s permission using trojan viruses that display fake security notifications about various security related problems and other similar infections. Be aware of the follwing fake security warnings:

What is more, Total Security constantly displays the Total Security Protection Center notification which is very similar to legitimate Windows Security Center window. Total Security is a scam and should be treated as such. Don’t buy this scam software and remove it from your PC as soon as possible after first appearance.
