Live Security Platinum - How to remove

Live Security Platinum

Live Security Platinum is a new rogue antivirus program that belongs to the same family of rogues as Security Shield and Security Tool, which are known for their nasty activities for a long time now. This family is called WinWebSec. The program has the same goal as the latter programs – it wants to steal money from the users that are not aware of this type of applications. The malware is distributed using exploit kits, that infect PCs through various vulnerabilities. If you have older Java, Adobe Flash or non-updated Windows version, you risk to get Live Security Platinum rogue. In some cases this parasite can use trojans for infection too.

Live Security Platinum displays numerous fake pop up messages and security alerts that redirect to pages selling its so-called full version which promises to fix all your computer problems. In reality, the program has no useful functions at all. Its only goal is to convince computer users into purchasing a so called full version of this rogue. Here’s how they look like:

LIve Security Platinum, as the rest of this type of programs, infiltrates to the system completely secretly. Once it is there, it makes modifications letting the program be launched easily with each system reboot. Then fake AV pretends to scan your machine for infections. Lastly, the scanner even displays a list of infections that were supposedly detected on your system. To finish the scan and to remove them, you will be asked to purchase a full version of Live Security Platinum. Do not fall for this scam unless you want to give your money to computer hackers.

There are no reasons to trust Live Security Platinum under any circumstances. Paying for its full version is a huge mistake as such version doesn’t even exist. The best way to fix all the problems is to remove Live Security Platinum using a reliable antispyware program, for example spyhunter or Spyware Doctor (2012 version) . Upgrade it to its newest version and run a full system scan with it. If it does not launch, rename it to .com from .exe . Spyhunter kills rogue process automatically on the launch, and Spyware Doctor prevents the malware from killing its process and thus stopping the scan.

  1. They have 2 support numbers…

    Call them and troll the living daylights outta them!
    888-887-7721 and 888-717-7595

  2. Cold Seavers : This number is not new. It is shared by both Fake HDD rogues, and some WinWebSecurity. The problem is, it is not for the real malware makers. You will reach some poor guys in India that were hired to “support” these rogues.

  3. I can’t even get Windows to load so I cannot go to any website to be able to get rid of the Live Security Platinum !!! HELP !!!!

  4. I didn’t proceed on any of these actions, internet sites suggested (download antitrojan programs, etc. I could’ t go on save mode, because the Live Security Platinum didn’t allow do so. I couldn’ t even do “format”. But the solution was that simple.

    I clicked on properties in the Live Security Platinum desktop icon, i found out the name of the folder of this program in the application data folder, and i deleted this, with file assassin program.

    I did all these right after i turned on my pc, having created a sortcut of the folder of the malicius program, in order not to waste time.

    I have noticed, that these programs, don’t start immediately, when we turn on the pc and i used this benefit.

  5. If you have any restore points for system restore I went back a few days and make sure to install malwarebytes pro which offers real-time protection.

  6. plus, see if you can get into the option on your computer, esp if you have windows 7 to repair your computer, then click on system restore, and choose your restore point. THis is effective if you cannot get into windows.

  7. I was infected last night whilst downloading “Firefox plugin updates” hmmm! Realised immediately but the thing disabled both McAfee and Windows Defender. Luckily I also have WinZip Security Untility and that seemed to kill it. Full scan and then again when McAfee was able to run again. Appears to be clear. Everything crossed. Bastards!
