Security Sphere 2012 is a fake antivirus, a new version of Personal Shield Pro, sharing not only the same GUI but misleading tactics as well. Being designed to swindle users’ money, it can’t be trusted and left on your computer, so remove Security Sphere 2012 rogue anti-spyware once you notice a sign of its existence on your computer. The rogue software infiltrates your computer in a stealthy way – using security holes of your system. Users are simply offered to update their browser or download Adobe Flash Player updates but in reality they are simply made to download malware. Keep in mind that having licensed version of anti-virus and anti-spyware protects your PC from such unexpected virus intrusions. We recommend trying spyhunter on your computers.
As soon as Security Sphere gets on the stage, it usually makes some changes to the system. These system changes are done to launch once PC is rebooted, so everytime your computer starts malware will start displaying continuous system scanners. These scanners imitate running through your files and usually ‘detect’ tons of faked viruses. No matter how this thing looks like, you must ignore all alerts displayed by Security Sphere 2012. In reality, it does not check your system files but repots harmless files that it drops before its scanning procedure. Some messages will report:
