Windows Safety Series Removal Guide
Windows Safety Series is a computer infection from the
family of rogue anti-spyware programs.
This infection is considered a rogue due to its deliberate use of false
scan results, the displaying of fake security alerts, and because it
changes settings on your computer so that you are no longer able to run
legitimate programs. This infection is spread via three methods. The
first method is through the display of online advertisements that
pretend to be an online anti-malware scanner. This scanner will state
that your computer is infected and then prompt you to download and
install the rogue. The second method is through Trojans that pretend to
be software required to view an online video. The last method is hacked
web sites that attempt to exploit vulnerabilities found on your computer
to install the infection without your permission or knowledge.
