My Security Engine

One of the first things that many computer users do when they get a new system is install a reliable security program.  Threats to our systems abound, and we want to protect our data.  Rogue antivirus programs hope to capitalize on this by offering to resolve security threats that it has created itself.  Learning how to recognize their telltale signs is important so you can avoid the "protection" that these programs have to offer.

My Security Engine is a typical rogue antivirus program in that it enters covertly and then makes itself unknown by issuing myriad pop-ups warning of severe security risks.  Its goal, like that of its brother rogues CleanUp Antivirus and Security Master AV, is to persuade computer users to buy its expensive and ineffective software.  First, though, it must convince users that they have security issues that only My Security Engine can solve. False warning messages and scans are its favorite tool, and it depends on relentless pop-ups to further its rather elaborate ad campaign.

Recognizing the signs that a rogue like My Security Engine has entered your system is vital because it is able to enter your system covertly. While users can opt to purchase and install My Security Engine, believing it to be a legitimate security program, it is more common for it come in with a Trojan, like Zlob. Trojans disguise themselves - Zlob masquerades as a video codec - so they can gain access if you click on an affected site, video, image, ad, or email attachment.  While Trojans are notorious for affecting sites with adult, pirated, or gaming content, it is also common for them to affect sites with social networking, peer-to-peer, free video, and trending content.  Once the Trojan enters, it deposits My Security Engine and other forms of malware.

What makes My Security Engine and other rogues so difficult to remove is that after entry, they hide in your system registry.  They purposely evade detection by your antivirus program and are able to change your security settings to remain free to operate.  After that point of dormancy, you will begin to notice signs of My Security Engine's activity.  The most immediately clear is the inundation of pop-ups.

The pop-ups generated by My Security Engine look like security warnings, but it is important to remember that they are nothing but ads, not unlike adware programs. The infections they claim to find are entirely fictitious.  The warning messages appear as balloons and may pop up randomly or after you click on an unfamiliar icon on your system tray.  Here are two examples:

Notepad.exe cannot be executed.  The file is infected. Please activate your antivirus software.

Your PC may still be infected with dangerous viruses.  My Security Engine is needed to prevent data loss and avoid theft of your personal data and credit card details.  Click here to activate protection.

You will also notice false security scan windows.  These mimic those from legitimate programs, so take the time to look carefully.  You'll see the "My Security Engine" name in the top left corner.  It lists a host of files it claims are infected and urges you to activate protection.  It claims to have already removed one severe threat.  Remember that there are no infections. 

You will also notice that your computer is slower and that you are frequently redirected to 404 error messages or to rogue websites.  This is intended to further the illusion of security problems and urge you to buy My Security Engine.  It may become difficult to navigate online.  Eventually, if left intact, My Security Engine may help other forms of malware enter your computer by exploiting security weaknesses.  Because of this, and to ensure the safety of your system and data, it is essential that you remove My Security Engine as soon as possible. 

Removing My Security Engine

It is very difficult to remove rogue antivirus programs like My Security Engine because they are designed to evade basic removal attempts, like using the uninstall or delete option or running your current antivirus programs.  My Security Engine is not a virus, so it cannot be removed like one.  Manual removal of My Security Engine is possible, but it is risky for those without technical experience.  It is possible to fail to remove the program entirely, in which case it can repair itself, and it is equally possible to remove a necessary file and impact the performance of your computer further.  Do not attempt this unless you have experience in your system registry, and have a great deal of time and patience. 

Automatic removal with a specially designed program, such as Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (Malwarebytes has free malware removal) , is a much safer, and a much faster, option.  These programs are intended to detect and remove elusive programs like My Security Engine, which can hide in systems and evade traditional removal attempts.
