    If you want to remove completely Security Suite virus from your computer, then you need to follow this removal tutorial on how to remove Security Suite virus from your system completely.

    Security Suite virus can automatically start after Windows logs in and it will start a scanning process which will tell you that your computer contains lots of infected files, but all these are fake results and those files are clean, the only virus existent in your system is Security Suite that you need to remove. Also, it says that if you want to clean those infected files you need to buy the full version of it. Of course that this is a scamming attempt and you will lose your money if you decide to trust in this malicious software. Security Suite won't scan your system, it just pretends to do that and all the scanning results are fake as it only tries to fool you into thinking that if you buy it you will manage to clean your system, when in fact your system is completely clean except for the Security Suite virus.


    Security Suite will also block some of your applications and you won't be able to run them. Security Suite virus blocks applications so that you won't be able to run a legitimate anti-virus program and remove it from your system. So, when you try to open an applications you should see some of the following fake warning messages:

    1. * Security Warning. Application cannot be executed. The file notepad.exe is infected. Do you want to activate your antivirus software now.
      * Windows Security Alert. Windows reports that computer is infected. Antivirus software helps to protect your computer against viruses and other security threats.
      * Antivirus software alert. INFILTRATION ALERT. Your computer is being attacked by an internet virus. It could be a password-stealing attack, trojan - dropper or similar. Threat: BankerFox.A Do you want to block this attack? Yes or No.
    Another nasty thing that the Security Suite does is that it will change the proxy server of your Internet Explorer and you should see some of the following fake warning messages:

    1. * Internet Explorer warning - visiting this site may harm your computer! Most likely causes: The website contains exploits that can launch a malicious code on your computer. Suspicious network activity detected. There might be an active spyware running on your computer. What you can try: Purchase for secure Internet surfing (Recommended). Check your computer for viruses and malware.
    All those warning messages are fake and the virus is the Security Suite it self and you need to get rid of it as fast as you can. Still, if Security Suite virus convinced you to buy the full version of it, you should immediately call your credit card company and tell them that you were the victim of a scamming and you bought in fact a PC virus and they might give your money back.

    The Step of Uninstalling or Removing Security Suite Virus

Security Suite might have blocked your system's possibility to download anything from the internet and you will be forced to download the antivirus applications on another PC and after that you can transfer them with a USB memory stick, CD / DVD or with any other type of removable storage device. Now, please get to the next and start the removal of Security Suite virus.

      3. You need to restart your system in "Safe Mode with Networking" mode and to do this, you need to tap the F8 key, before the Windows logo appears and from the menu select Safe Mode with Networking option. When Windows logs in get to the next step.

      4.Security Suite virus changes the proxy server and you won't be able to visit any websites with Internet Explorer or any other browser. So, we need to solve this problem. Start Internet Explorer, and go to Tools and there go to Internet Options. Click on the Connections tab.
