SecurityMechanic Removal Instructions

When it comes to rogue security applications, SecurityMechanic is nothing special. It uses the same means as practically every other rogue to infect computers. Though it can be manually downloaded, it commonly infects through Trojans and worms. Once it has infected a computer, SecurityMechanic will harass the user with fake security warnings and false system scans. It will then tell the user that they must purchase the full version of the program.
This is a completely useless program and it will cause the computer it infects to slow down. It may also download other malware. SecurityMechanic should be removed as soon as possible. In order to do this manually, you should stop the following processes:

    I purchased SpyZooka for my netbook over a year ago and renewed it. I am very pleased to have never had a virus on my netbook!
