Of course, besides that, you should also avoid illegal files’ sharing, beware of social engineering scams, and browse with care, if you want your computer completely secured against malware.

Despite the various invasion possibilities, Live Security Platinum can act even more cunningly once it starts running inside your Windows OS, and you might notice that system’s performance has changed, with even a possibility that some administrative privileges could be removed.

UPDATE

Live Security Platinum is a bogus application which does not reveal its original intentions. As this application wants to force you to purchase its imaginary full version, it simulates certain functions of legitimate applications in order to make you do what it wants.

The first thing that Live Security Platinum does is simulates scans, and presents bogus infections. You will find, for example, such infections as spyware, Trojans, Worms which are impossible to remove because they do not exist in the system. However, the malware wants to make you think so. It names the infections as Win32.PerFlier, Trojan-Downloader.VBS.Small.do, or Worm.Bagle.CP, etc. These infections are not present in the system, and you should not try to delete them manually, because some damage may be caused due to careless removal.

Second, the rogue seeks to scare you by presented bogus messages. There are some of the messages how the rogue attempts to lure you into buying its imaginary full version:

Warning: Your computer is infected
Detected spyware infection!
Click this message to install the last update of security software

According to Live Security Platinum, it cannot remove infections because it is not activated. To make you pay money, it says that:

Antivirus protection is disabled. Your PC is unguarded against most known viruses and can be infected. Click “Enable Antivirus Protection” to protect your PC and secure your Internet activity.

Lastly, the rogue disables some Windows applications. Task Manager is hides as well as Registry Editor where new registry entries are created. The entries may block certain executable files and, therefore, you might notice that the system is not running properly. Moreover, it might happen that the rogue limits access to the Internet.

In order to protect the system, you have to remove the infection. A powerful and reliable antispyware is the best option for removal of this infection. It detects and deletes all the components of the rogue and protects the system against further infections.
