Internet Security Plus Screenshot 1Rather than being an addition to your computer's security, Internet Security Plus is nothing more than a negative, as a fictitious anti-malware program that pretends to detect malicious software so that Internet Security Plus can encourage you to pay for its fraudulent registration. SpywareRemove.com malware experts are very familiar with Internet Security Plus's family of multi-named scamware products, which, in addition to their fake security information, also may block other programs and create pop-ups that imitate the interfaces of legitimate Windows utilities (like your firewall). Removing Internet Security Plus with a real brand of anti-malware software always is encouraged as the best response to Internet Security Plus, which may be installed via exploits on hostile websites or by various Trojans.

Internet Security Plus: Subtracting from Your Safety... and Asking You to Pay for It

Superficially, Internet Security Plus is crafted to look just like any other anti-malware scanner, with a generalized set of security features that crystallize around the concept of protecting your PC from online PC threats and malicious software alike. However, peering behind Internet Security Plus's looks, you'll see that these features just are skin deep – since SpywareRemove.com malware experts didn't need more than a little time to verify that Internet Security Plus can't detect malware or attacks against your computer at all.

While Internet Security Plus's system scans are designed to generate poor results without any attempt to detect any real infections, its pop-ups are, perhaps, more troublesome for their tendency to mimic other programs, such as default Windows software. However, anyone with a basic familiarity of the other members of Internet Security Plus's family of FakeRean, should be able to identify Internet Security Plus's fake warnings without any trouble.

These numerous fake warnings only exist to back up Internet Security Plus's request for a premium registration fee, which exposes your financial information to criminals. In any scenario where you've registered Internet Security Plus before realizing that Internet Security Plus is scamware, SpywareRemove.com malware researchers recommend that you cancel the transaction through the relevant authorities and take further steps to prevent criminals from using your confidential information for future crimes (credit card fraud, etc).

Doing the Math to Get Internet Security Plus Out of Your Business

By far, Internet Security Plus's most hindersome attack is its tendency, like all FakeRean-based rogue anti-malware programs, to monitor which programs you're using and terminate them arbitrarily. Among the numerous clones of Internet Security Plus are Antivirus 2008 Pro, Windows Antivirus 2008, Vista Antivirus 2008, Antivirus XP 2008, PC Clean Pro, Antivirus Pro 2009, AntiSpy Safeguard, ThinkPoint, Spyware Protection 2010, Internet Antivirus 2011, Palladium Pro, XP Anti-Virus 2011, CleanThis, Rogue.Vista Antivirus 2008, XP Home Security 2012, XP Security 2012 and AntiVirus PRO 2015. Since SpywareRemove.com malware researchers often observe this attack being performed through an EXE name-based block list that excludes some baseline Windows programs, one of the simplest ways to work around this software blockade is to rename your program file to the name of an essential Windows program. However, disabling Internet Security Plus also is recommended before you try to disinfect your computer.

Internet Security Plus and other FakeRean scamware often are installed via Trojan downloaders and Trojan droppers that distribute such PC threats specifically. To be certain of deleting Internet Security Plus and all other malware that may have come with Internet Security Plus, you should consider using appropriate anti-malware utilities, rather than trying to delete Internet Security Plus through the Control Panel or other standardized methods.
