Secure Fighter - How To Remove?

Type: Rogue Anti-Spyware

Secure Fighter is a rogue anti-spyware program, one in a long line of fake spyware removers, the more recent of which are Secure Veteran, Security Soldier and Security Tool. As you can see, the name gets more ridiculous with each application. Different name, same raison d’etre: this parasite was created for the sole purpose of swindling money from inexpierienced users by exploiting their fear of cyber threats. Secure Fighter usually enters the system by using one trojan or another, but it can also be downloaded and installed manually, typically – after being subjected to misleading information.

Secure Fighter creates the illusion that the user’s system is infected, when in fact the program has no way of making such a claim. There are many methods instrumental in achieving this goal, some of the more common are popups, which claim the system is infected and link to the purchase page of Secure Fighter, fake system scans, which mark harmless files as threats, and browser hijackers, which redirect the user to fake online scans.

The punchline comes once the user is convinced that he is in need of security software – in order to remove the “threats”, the licensed version of Secure Fighter is required. This so-called licensed version is completely worthless, but costs quite a bit nevertheless. Essentially what you end up paying for is decreased system performance, tons of annoying popups, the inability to use certain programs, and blocked websites.

Secure Fighter is a scam and should be treated as such: do NOT download or buy it and remove Secure Fighter immediately upon detection.
