SecureWarrior

Rogue antivirus programs go by many different names, but they all share the same objective.  They seek to convince computer users of severe security risks and urge them to buy their full software packages in order to resolve the issues.  Often, there is nothing amiss with the computer, except for the presence of the rogue program.  Further, programs like SecureWarrior cannot scan or protect computers.

What Is SecureWarrior?

SecureWarrior behaves identically to those in its WinSoft malware family, including SecureVeteran, TrustWarrior, SecuritySoldier, TrustFigther, and more.  Each of these is virtually the same and differ only by name.  Characteristic of rogue antivirus programs they create false security scans and warning messages.  These tell the computer user that there are multiple threats to his system.  In order to resolve them, he needs to buy the full software package.  Also characteristic of rogue antivirus programs, this software does not protect. 

There are two version of SecureWarrior, the trial or free version and the full licensed version.  What is the difference?  Nothing except money.  You must pay for the full version, which will not work to resolve existing problems or protect against future risks.  The trial version is brought in by Trojans and causes the influx of pop-ups and warning messages.  In either case, SecureWarrior will not protect your system.

Is SecureWarrior In My System?

SecureWarrior can enter your system without your knowledge so it is important to be able to spot the signs that it is present.  The most noticeable will be the pop-ups.  Since we have filters that normally block these ads, a sudden influx can signal that a rogue antivirus program has been installed.  You will see these even when you are offline.  A typical warning may read:

This PC is NOT PROTECTED!

It then gives you the option to "remove."  Many people do this automatically, wanting to protect their computer.  No one wants to ignore risks.  This is what rogue programs count on.  After you click "remove" you will be directed to a rogue site which asks for payment information.  Never click on these ads, and if you should happen to, never provide credit card or personal information.

Another favorite device used by SecureWarrior and other rogue antivirus programs is the simulated scan result window.  This will pop up and indicate that it has just run a scan of your system.  It displays a list of files it says are corrupt or threatening to your computer's security.  In reality, the list of infections is nothing but a bunch of harmless files.  These are created by SecureWarrior to help perpetuate the appearance of security threats.  The results window has the SecureWarrior name clearly printed in the right top corner, as well as in the top left.  There is a symbol that looks like three linked rings.  This is identical in every way to the false scan results of TrustSoldier, TrustFigther, SafeFighter, Trust Cop, and others in this rogue family.

 It is important to spot the false warnings from the legitimate ones.  Since the warnings have the SecureWarrior name written clearly on them, this is easy.  Just make sure to read all messages before taking action, and never click on a message from a program other than your legitimate security program that you have installed yourself. 

Slow computer performance, new shortcuts on your desktop, flashing icons in your system tray, and changed web settings are all characteristic of rogue antivirus programs.  If these symptoms occur together, it is important to take immediate steps to remove the rogue program.

If it is left in your computer, it can disable your task manager and registry editor, among other functions.  This makes it very difficult to delete or uninstall the rogue program.  It may cause further system instability.

How Did SecureWarrior Get Into My System?

One method of entry is user installment.  It may happen that a computer user is directed to SecureWarrior's rogue website and opts to purchase the software.  This is purely out of the desire to protect one's computer; rogue programs can be effective in creating the appearance of legitimacy.  Also being greeted with myriad pop-ups, many people are led to believe there are in fact serious problems with their computer.  They install SecureWarrior, believing that it will resolve these issues.

SecureWarrior and other rogue antivirus programs do not depend on user installation alone.  It can also install itself via Trojans.  Trojans typically inhabit certain types of sites, even those that are entirely legitimate.  Especially prone are adult, gaming, gambling, social networking and warez sites, as well as those that offer instant messaging or free videos.  Visiting these sites, clicking on an ad, or downloading an image or video can allow the Trojans access to your system.  The Trojans Vundo and Zlob are two that are particularly associated with rogue antivirus programs.  Once it has access, it carries in malware like SecureWarrior.

Removing Secure Warrior

To ensure that your computer works optimally, it is essential to remove SecureWarrior immediately.  Rogue programs disable typical removal devices, such as the delete option, and they cannot be detected by antivirus programs.  In order to effectively remove them from your machine, you have to use a specially designed program, such as Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (Malwarebytes has free malware removal) .  Unlike regular antivirus programs (which are great and necessary for detecting viruses), XoftSpySE can detect and remove elusive rogue antivirus programs.  SecureWarrior and its brethren are not viruses and can't be removed like viruses.

Another option is to remove SecureWarrior manually.  If you have a great deal of technical experience and a lot of time, this is effective.  Be sure, though, to remove every file and key associated with the rogue program without deleting any necessary files.
