Intelinet Smart Security 3.1.0 is a rogue anti-malware scanner that claims to offer a wealth of features but doesn't have any of the functionality to detect actual PC threats. Attempts to coexist with Intelinet Smart Security 3.1.0 will result in suffering through pop-up alert after pop-up alert as Intelinet Smart Security 3.1.0 insists that clean files are actually infected with Trojans, rootkits or other kinds of malicious security programs. Because Intelinet Smart Security 3.1.0 is primarily-distributed by hostile websites and shareware-based sites with poor security, SpywareRemove.com malware experts advise for caution while browsing the web to protect your PC from Intelinet Smart Security 3.1.0. Removing Intelinet Smart Security 3.1.0 should always use a good anti-malware program, since Intelinet Smart Security 3.1.0 makes changes to the Windows Registry and can avoid total deletion by normal methods.

Intelinet Smart Security 3.1.0: Why Its Version Numbers Are as Fake as the Rest of It

Unlike most types of scamware, Intelinet Smart Security 3.1.0 includes version numbers right in its profusely-marketed name, but after a little digging, SpywareRemove.com malware researchers have found that previous versions of Intelinet Smart Security 3.1.0 are mostly-nonexistent. In fact, although Intelinet Smart Security 3.1.0 is available through a variety of software sites that are known for incidentally-promoting scamware, Intelinet Smart Security 3.1.0 doesn't have any of the features that Intelinet Smart Security 3.1.0 claims to wield on your behalf – including PC threat-detection or removal functions. If your web browser makes contact with any site that's affiliated with Intelinet Smart Security 3.1.0 or known for promoting similar types of rogue anti-malware programs, you should scan your PC to make sure that malicious software hasn't been installed by way of browser vulnerabilities.

Typical to the standards of most scamware, Intelinet Smart Security 3.1.0 creates fake alerts and other forms of warnings that randomly-target files without any attempt to analyze the presence or lack thereof of any particular PC threats. This is just a preliminary step to Intelinet Smart Security 3.1.0's real goal, which is to request that you purchase Intelinet Smart Security 3.1.0 so that it can remove these fake infections. Naturally, SpywareRemove.com malware experts discourage any attempts to buy, even as part of its removal process, since this will waste your money and runs the risk of allowing criminals to make additional charges with your credit card information.

Getting Smart About Getting Rid of Intelinet Smart Security 3.1.0

Deleting Intelinet Smart Security 3.1.0 should be accomplished via genuine anti-malware products that can detect and remove Intelinet Smart Security 3.1.0's registry registry entries and other components that are risky to remove by manual means. However, SpywareRemove.com malware researchers note that since Intelinet Smart Security 3.1.0 will try to launch itself without your consent, you may need to boot Windows into Safe Mode or use other methods to stop Intelinet Smart Security 3.1.0 from being launched before you remove Intelinet Smart Security 3.1.0.

In addition to Intelinet Smart Security 3.1.0, you should also avoid Intelinet Smart Security 3.1.0's twin, Intelinet Internet Protection and any other Intelinet-brand products. Intelinet has been confirmed to have a history of making fraudulent charges to credit (and debit) cards and will refuse to make any refunds (although they may pretend to do so initially).
