ScreenshotSecurityFighter is a rogue anti-spyware application that is known to come from the same group of hackers that created other fake security programs such as SoftSafeness, SaveDefense, SaveArmor, SaveDefender and BlockDefense. Once SecurityFighter is installed, it will display fake warning messages and carry out system scans that return erroneous results all in an attempt to make you think that you need a full version of SecurityFighter to remove the threats.

SecurityFighter does not have the ability to remove computer parasites. SecurityFighter is none other than another bogus security application. SecurityFighter may be installed through a Trojan without your knowledge. Detection and removal of SecurityFighter is recommended to reduce the risk of damage to the infected system.
