30.10.2009

If your computer got infected with the new Volcano Security Suite program, this article will provide a quick removal guide for this rogue anti-spyware, as well as extensive information regarding what Volcano Security Suite is, how it got on your computer and what it does.

The first thing you should know is that Volcano Security Suite is a fake security software that will try to trick you into thinking that your computer is infected so you buy the program to remove those infections. Do not buy Volcano Security Suite as it is a rogue anti-spyware, but in general terms you can call it a scam.

Volcano Security Suite gets on your computer via fake scanner pages on the web that fake a scan of your computer. Conveniently enough, when this fake scan is over, the scanner will report that you have to download Volcano Security Suite to protect your computer from these security threats.

Once downloaded, Volcano Security Suite will then automatically start when Windows loads and it will also create a number of harmless files. When Volcano Security Suite scans your computer, it will detect these harmless files as infections and prompt you to buy the full version so you can remove them. Do not believe these warnings as these files are harmless.

The files that the Volcano Security Suite virus will detect as infections are:

RecentANTIGEN.sys
Recentcb.dll
Recentcb.tmp
RecentCLSV.tmp
RecentDBOLE.sys
Recentddv.dll
Recenteb.tmp
Recentfan.drv
RecentFS.drv
Recentkernel32.drv
RecentPE.drv
Recentppal.sys
Recentrunddlkey.dll
Recentrunddlkey.drv
Recenttempdoc.sys

Volcano Security Suite will also block any anti-virus program that you may currently have installed on your computer. In addition, it will hijack you Internet Explorer and will display a large number of fake security warning on your desktop. Do not believe any of these warnings. As we mentioned before, Volcano Security Suite is a scam and probably the only security problem you have is the Volcano Security Suite itself.
