One of the worst things in the computer and internet world is getting a virus. Even if we have anti virus installed and running sometimes these sneaky viruses seem to slip through the cracks and get onto our personal computers. What’s even worse is to have an infection and it actually poses as antivirus software. Most users don’t know what to do when they are attacked in this way and some even try to ignore the problem and think it will go away on its own. That almost always is not the case.
First let’s look at what this Security Suite virus is. Security Suite is actually a form of malware or ransomware. It is installed onto your computer in a variety of ways and is very difficult to get off without special programs designed to remove it. The malware will wreak havoc on your system popping up windows with advertisements and showing you false security alerts. They even have dialogs that tell you that your system is under attack! Your PC will be much slower also because it drops the performance and tries to get you to buy their product. That’s the reason behind the malware is to make a sale. I would never buy a product that is delivered this way. Basically it holds your computer at ransom until you buy the software. Hence the name “ransomware”.
Don’t worry, even though it is a bad program, it can be removed safely and securely. The first thing you need is a good spyware program that is updated. Next you’ll need a good antivirus that is updated. Keep in mind that you won’t be able to download these programs on the infected machine because Security Suite will block the web addresses since it attacks the browser also. You can however start your computer in “safe mode with networking” by pressing the F8 key on your keyboard during startup. This should allow you to get the programs you need and run a full system scan without the malware being loaded yet.
Once you’ve got your computer clean and virus free be sure to turn on automatic updates to your anti virus and anti spyware programs. This will help insure that if you were attacked by a virus again your computer may be able to fight it off.
