How to remove Win 7 Security 2011?
What is Win 7 Security 2011?
Win 7 Security 2011 scam is the fresh rogue antivirus program distinguished by generic names that are dependent on Operating system version running on PC. In the beginning of 2011, this malware has renewed its activity and has started to annoy computer users again. You get asked to update Microsoft’s security programs, you download and install some update and as a result you will get your computer infected with one of these fake antiviruses like Win 7 Security. This version is particularly nasty, as it blocks all programs from launching.
First symptom after infection is that instead of legitimate programs you launch Win 7 Security 2011 executable. It will claim that the process is infected and had to be closed, but in fact the program files are not checked at all. The scans Win 7 security 2011 makes are false, the resulting files are harmless or non-existent on the PC at all.
Only browsers launch normally, but the browsing itself is blocked by malware. Most of legitimate anti-malware websites are blocked, thus you might need to download the programs on another PC or from secondary locations like here: Spyhunter. Some of the executables might be launched by right-clicking on them and running them as administrator. However, it will not allways work.
You are also bombarded by various system alerts like these:
Your system security is in danger. Privacy threats detected. Spyware, keyloggers or Trojans may be working the background right now. Perform an in-depth scan and removal now, click here.

You can ignore them as everything that Win 7 Security 2011 says. Everything is false and only to convince you to give away your credit card details. This would pay the scammers and malware developers, thus I would suggest not doing so. You should remove Win 7 Security as soon as possible to prevent something breaking further what would require a complete reinstall of your Windows 7 OS.
