Internet Security Pro scam is quite annoying indeed. First, the malware comes to your PC without invitation. You do not install it at your own initiative. Look into the section “Add / Remove Programs” of your Control Panel. Do you see Internet Security Pro there? Of course, not. The rogue security tool never acts as a legitimate one. So, it does not care whether you would like to see it running on your PC. Secondly, this program would interfere into your computer, making the rogue start automatically each time you turn your PC on. This means that once you or your relatives decide to use the computer Internet Security Pro would be the first thing you would all face once the system is booted. The rogue would then keep bombarding you with a lot of fake security information. It would arrange the bogus scan of your computer, saying that your PC is extremely contaminated with malwares. When you attempt to run any available installed anti-viruses the hoax would tell you that the file you are going to execute is infected with some horrible threat named W32.Blaster.Worm. By the way, such infection does not even exist. This is just one simple example of fake information presented by the malware program naming itself as Internet Security Pro.
There are many variants of similar malware applications. These fake AVs were developed specifically to scare users into thinking their machine is infected and to prompt them into paying for the malware. Don’t forget about this fact, so when the rogue suggests to you to effect the payment for its license or activation code please be smart to ignore its offers. As we said in the previous paragraph, the virus would not let you run the legitimate anti-virus software installed on your computer. Neither will it permit you to download the virus remover via the Internet. It would say that the Internet Explorer or other browsers (like Opera, Chrome and Mozilla Firefox) are infected with the same virus named W32.Blaster.Worm. Even the Task Manager would be reported as the one having this pest inside, so the program would in the same manner prevent you from launching it. There is a way how you can avoid the blockage.
If your system suffers from Internet Security Pro malware aggression surely you must do something with this problem. It is a good idea to consider installing some real-time anti-virus protection tool that would prevent all sorts of malware infiltration attempts and would help your PC stay and remain clean. Do not tolerate Internet Security Pro. Remove this virus without postponing this important item on your agenda for later day.
