Cyber Security is a fake antivirus program.  Once this programs starts to scan it shows misleading and false infections.   Infected users will notice a few security messages warning them about the product needing updates.  Once again you should not consider purchasing this product.  It would be better just to burn your money then give it to theses crooks. Cyber Security is a clone of another program called Total Security.  It uses the same GUI ( Graphic user interface ). The only real difference is in the trace files.  All in all this is malware program or fake client is not hard to remove.  At least it's not hard compared to most other rouge security clients that we have seen in the last few months. This threat also shows a fake security shield in the system tray.  This security shield looks very similar to the Windows one but it's not. 

If you click on the shield it will bring up an image that looks legit and from Microsoft informing you that you should update the Cyber Security program.  In order to update this false program you would need to purchase it.  Again it's a scam so don't even think about it. We should note that unless you were tricked into installing this threat you have another virus on your computer.  The other virus is a trojan downloader program.  these types of trojans go out and download other viruses and spyware onto the users system.  Because of this we recommend you run a full scan using your favorite security product.  This will ensure you remove all viruses installed on your computer. Below are the virus removal instructions from our test computer for Cyber Security. If your traces are different then help others out and post a comment letting people know. Also we will then know it mutated and we can infect anther test computer to provide updated info.

Manual removal instructions for Cyber Security ( Please read our disclaimer below )

Kill Cyber Security processes: ( Learn How to Kill a Process Here. Opens in new Window )

  • tsc.exe
  • csc.exe  ( This is the latest trace we picked up ) Most likely only one of these processes are running.

We recommend you watch the video to learn how you can identify these running processes. We do recommend you run a full scan using SpyHunter. Even if you do not intend on registering the product it will help to stop the virus from re-installing and re-activating while you manually remove it. Also it will inform you of any new changes to the file names. If the Windows Task Manager does not open for you then use the Process Killer tool on our side bar. Also we have a registry fix there to re-enable the Task Manager. If the tsc.exe or csc.exe file is not running then your strain has mutated. Simply run the Spyware Doctor with Antivirus client to find the new trace or watch the video to learn how to identify it. Delete Cyber Security registry values: ( Learn How to Edit Registry Here. Opens in new Window )

  • winsource.dll
  • Help.lnk
