SecureFighter

Computers can slow down or operate sluggishly for any number of reasons; but if you notice this in addition to other telltale signs, it can indicate that a rogue antivirus program has been installed in your system.  The objective of SecureFighter and other such rogue programs is to create "security threats" and persuade users to buy their software. 

What is SecureFighter?

SecureFighter is part of the WinSoft family of rogue antivirus programs.  It is nearly identical to SecurityWarrior, TrustFighter, Trust Cop, and many more.  Programs like these create a host of harmless files.  When they run their false scans, they display these and claim they are security risks.  They then urge you to buy their software so you can resolve these risks immediately.  SecureFighter uses typical rogue antivirus tools in its effort to convince computer users of its legitimacy and authenticity.  But if users do decide to purchase the software, they get nothing in return.  Not even the issues caused by SecureFighter are resolved.

How Does SecureFighter Enter a Computer?

SecureFighter does not require your permission in order to enter your system.   It uses Trojans, such as Zlob and Vundo, to gain access.  When you visit an affected site, open a corrupt email attachment, or download an affected video, it is possible for a Trojan to enter your system.  Adult sites are notorious for being loaded with Trojans, but these uninvited guests are also present at a number of other types of sites, including social networking and gaming sites.  It is also possible to pick up a Trojan when instant messaging or downloading videos.  The Trojan enters and deposits SecureFighter and other forms of malware.

This is the main route of entry, but many computer users opt to purchase the software when they are directed to one of SecureFighter's websites.  This program advertises on websites, and clicking on an ad will bring the user to a page asking for payment information.  This is unfortunate but understandable.  We want to protect our computers, but SecureFighter's software is not capable of doing that. 

If SecureFighter Doesn't Protect, What Does It Do? 

SecureFighter is designed to persuade you that there are risks in your system.  To do this, it uses pop-up ads, and lots of them.  Whenever you start your computer, these ads will begin appearing. A typical warning message will read:

Spyware Alert!

 

Your computer is infected with spyware.  It could damage your

critical files or expose your private data on the internet.  Click

here to register your copy of SecureFighter and remove

spyware threats from your PC.

Language like this is designed to prompt users to immediate action.  Who wants to chance damaging their critical files or exposing their private information, which could include financial data?  You are led to believe that registering your copy of SecureFighter will resolve these problems and keep your computer safe.  In reality, there are no risks.  The only problem is that SecureFighter has installed its "trial version." 

SecureFighter also simulates a scan each time you start your computer.  It will list a variety of "infections" it has found.  It claims to find dozens, and even hundreds, of threats.  If you can recognize this scan as false, it will help you avoid further problems - and it will help you avoid SecureFighter's relatives.  The scan result window is the same that is used by TrustFighter, Trust Cop, and many other rogue programs.

Look for the name in both top corners.  SecureFighter is clearly written.  This should immediately tell you that the scan is false.  The only scan that is reliable is one you initiated with your existing, reputable security program.  There are several options on the scan result page, and one of them is to register your copy.  Do not click on any component of this window because it will direct you to the SecureFighter website.  If you can, close it using the task manager. 

SecureFigher continually attempts to divert you to its website, hoping to convince you that it is the answer to your security issues.  This is why you may notice new desktop shortcuts, flashing icons on your system tray, and hijacked internet settings, including a replacement homepage. 

The other main issue that SecureFigher creates in your computer is sluggish performance.  It is able to start itself automatically whenever your computer is turned on.  While it remains on, SecureFighter continues to run.  This uses up your valuable system resources, leaving far less with which to power your legitimate programs.  Even simple tasks start to take longer.

 

Removing SecureFighter

When you notice these signs, it is important to remove SecureFighter as soon as you can to prevent system instability and rid yourself of those pop-ups.  SecureFighter and other rogue programs are designed to evade basic removal attempts, so it will not be effective to simply delete the shortcuts or try to uninstall the rogue program.  Likewise, running your antivirus scan will not work because SecureFighter is not classified as a virus.  It is adept at evading detection.

It is possible, however, to remove SecureFighter using a reputable program that has been designed specifically for rogue antivirus programs.  Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (Malwarebytes has free malware removal) is a good choice because it will remove every trace of the rogue.  This option is recommended for everyone, especially those who have little technical experience and/or time.  After downloading the software and following the instructions, you are ready to get back to work.

The other option is manual removal, and this is only recommended for computer techs and others with extensive knowledge of computers.  It is important to remove every file and registry key associated with SecureFighter so the rogue program cannot recreate itself in your system registry.  It is equally important to keep from inadvertently deleting necessary files.  If you have the time, patience, and experience, do the following:
