How To Remove / Uninstall Personal Security Virus (Removal Guide)


07.12.2009

Personal Security is yet another rogue anti-spyware (that reads: scam, fake anti-virus, malware, etc) that infected a lot of computers in the past few weeks. The Personal Security virus will warn you about inexistent security problems on your computer and ask you to buy the program in order to get rid of those problems.

The Personal Security virus gets on your computer via malware and will then be automatically set to load every time Windows loads, trying to block out any security programs you may have on your computer in the process.

Personal Security Is A Rogue Anti-Spyware

When Personal Security loads, it will start a fake scan of your computer and then bring you a fake report (obviously, the Personal Security rogue malware will report huge security problems with your computers). This fake security software will then tell you that you have to buy the program so you can take care of all these infections and other security problems.

Do not buy Personal Security, it is a fake and you should proceed to removing it from your computer, as the Personal Security Virus Removal Guide Below will show you to.

Before we start the Personal Security removal guide, please note that the Personal Security virus will also display a fake Windows Security Center, as well as other numerous other security warnings. All these are fake and you shouldn’t pay attention to anything Personal Security warns you about.

Ok, now let’s start our Personal Security virus removal guide. Note that you should basically follow it to the letter. In addition, it may be best if you print out the guide first as you will be required to close ALL windows and applications.

Step 1. Go here and download the rkil.com file on your desktop.

Step 2. If the Personal Security virus does not allow you to download files, you can use another computer to download the files and transfer them to the infected one via USB stick or CD/DVD.

Step 3. Now you will need to end the Personal Security process. To do this, run the rkil.com file you downloaded at step one.

Step 4. This link will take you to our download page from where you can download the Free Malwarebyte’s Anti-Malware. Download the setup file on your desktop.

Step 5. Now close all open applications and windows (yes, this one too).

Step 6. Run the setup file you downloaded at step 4.

Step 7. Proceed with the Free Malwarebyte’s Anti-Malware installation, while making sure you keep the default settings and also tell the software to update itself and then run once the install is complete. (To do this, there will be two boxes you need to check before the process is complete).

Step 8. Now that Malwarebyte’s Anti-Malware is running, go to the scanner tab and perform a quick scan.

Step 9. When the scan is complete (note that it may take a while), go to the main scanner screen and click the “Show Results”.

Step 10. Make sure you check all the detected infections and then click the “Remove Selected” button. If Malwarebyte’s Anti-Malware prompts you for a restart, allow it to.

Step 11.
When the removal process is complete, you should have removed Private Security virus and all related files from your computer, as well as other detected malware.
