Security Center comes from the same malicious nest as Antimalware Tool. It is a rogue anti-spyware application that can slow down your computer and cause your system to crash if you do not take care of it. This rogue is distributed via fake online malware scanners that offer you to perform a free system “scan” in order to check for any suspicious activity in your system. Once you click on that kind of scanner you automatically initiate the download of Security Center, even though you are not prompted about it.

Once Security Center is installed in your computer, it is configured to load automatically whenever you boot your Windows. Then, it will pop into action and initiate a fake system scan. During the scan Security Center finds a lot of viruses and Trojans infecting your computer. These findings are not true, however, as they are forged in order to scare into buying the full version of the rogue. The trick is that if you attempt to remove these viruses with Security Center, the program will state that it is impossible with the trial version and you should activate the full version of the rogue.

If you continue to ignore the scan results, Security Center will flood you with the following fake security alert messages:

Security Center Firewall Alert
Security Center has prevent a program from accessing the Internet.
"iexplore.exe" is infected with Trojan. This worm has tried to use "iexplore.exe" to connect to remove host and send your credit card information.

Security Center Firewall Alert

Obviously, as long as you receive these messages from the rogue, your computer continues to slow down. What is more, Security Center will also block a few programs of yours, claiming that they have been infected. Also, this rogue has an ability to forcefully redirect you to Security Center-related websites, interfering with your browsing habits. Therefore, it is necessary to remove Security Center from your computer as soon as possible.

Do it before this rogue claims your money. Acquire a legitimate antimalware tool that will detect and terminate Security Center for you automatically without further ado.
