What is Security Central?

Security Central is a totally bogus program being advertised as a reliable security software. It is from the same family as XP Police Antivirus.

This is one of the nastiest program you might run upon those days. They are called malware. They do have others names too. What they do mostly is to disable lots of Windows features, like the Task Manager. It will end up controlling your computer.

So you will get lots of fake warnings about threats and more in order to scare you enough to do what this program wants: to make you purchase a fake full version. It will try to damage your system in many ways.

As soon as you see that Window telling you about threats on your system and asking you to buy the full and fake registered version, simply don't do that. All those results you are seeing are fake ones. This program was designed to scare you to get your money.

The fist thing to do once you're aware your computer has been infected by Security Central is to remove this malware.
At the end you will find the instructions for manual removal for those good enough to follow them. If you prefer another solution, I would then suggest you a nice website. It is called www.onlinecomputerrepair.org  . This is a web service run by computers experts. They are ready to help you with your Security Central removal. Simply contact them. The cost is around 89 dollars. It is a very fast online service less expensive than calling a local tech guy.

What Does Security Central do?

The first thing this malware will do is to create fake files all over your computer. Those files are harmless. Then Central Security will reconfigure your Registry so it can run on every boot.
On the next boot or login, it will do a fake system scan. It will display a window showing lots of threats on your computer.
You will notice that Security Central will display legitimate looking pop-ups or security alerts very similar to Windows Security Center warnings. You will get warnings that your computer is infected with Trojans, adware, spyware and more. This malware will constantly display such alerts. Take note that those alerts are fake. You might get tired of seeing them each 1-2 minutes and you will eventually find out you can not use your computer as before.

Security Central will also hijack your browser. It means whenever you try to use the Internet, it will most of the time take you to the malware's homepage. The same is true when doing Google search: this malware will redirect you to many similar malware's website rather than those on the search results. Goal here is to try to compromise more and more your computer with additional Trojans.

Besides the slowness you will experience, Security Central will compromise applications like the Task Manager, System Restore, your own anti-virus program, the Add/Remove Programs GUI and a few more.

The main goal of all that is to make you buy the fake registered version of this malware (Security Central).

Here is an example of one of those fake alerts what you might get:
"Security Central Threat Found Alert Object:
SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\SafeBoot\Network
Comment: Attack from: 111.90.181.116, port 47333
Attacked port: 10631
Threat: Trojan-DDoS.9"

We can resume this software's properties by the following: it will change your browser settings in many ways, it will show commercial advertisements (mostly the one asking you to buy a full version ) and it will always stay resident in the background.

How did I get infected with Security Central ?

Security Central will infect your computer from many possible ways. The first one is from downloading fake codec. Once done and installed, Security Central will but launch itself. This is a common and usual trick done by such trojans.

Another way is through fake online scanner. Here again Security Central will trick users to download some application and this way to get installed.

The last method involved the creation or modification of websites. Hackers will then install on such websites their own application, e.g. Security Central, and others. Users should always keep an recent and updated security program before browsing websites. Such websites will push some transfer onto the user's computers. This is called drive by download. Once accepted and if the threat is a recent one and the user do not detect any 'malware'... the computer then become infected.

If you find out your computer is infected by Security Central, I would like to recommend you the following program: Spyware Doctor with Antivirus » download. It will greatly help you with your Security Central removal : simply do a full and in-depth scan of your system with it. It will clean your system besides protecting it from further threats.
