Win 7 Total Security belongs to a big group of rogues that have over 36 titles in total (like Win 7 Internet Security, Win 7 Anti-Spyware 2011, XP Home Security 2011 and so on). The name of the rogue is generated randomly upon the infection, and it also depends on which operating system is installed in the affected computer. However, the point is that all of them are the same program with a different façade which means that all of these infections have the same symptoms and Win 7 Total Security differs nothing from its peers.
This rogue antispyware application is very cunning, because upon the installation it poses as Automatic updates from Windows security center. Its interface also does not differ much from the official product. Win 7 Total Security usually is installed as one executable file and its three-letter name is generated randomly, so it would be hard to pinpoint when or how exactly this rogue lands in your computer. What is more, Win 7 Total Security affects your internet browser in a way that whenever you try to launch it, the rogue pops into your screen displaying a fraudulent firewall warning message:
Win 7 Total Security Firewall Alert
Win 7 Total Security has blocked a program from accessing the internet
Internet Explorer is infected with Trojan-BNK.Win32.Keylogger.gen
Private data can be stolen by third parties, including credit card details and passwords.
Win 7 Total Security also performs a fake system scan and you should ignore its results altogether along with the following fake security alert messages:
Spyware intrusion detected. Your system is infected. System integrity is at risk. Private data can be stolen by third parties, including credit card details and passwords. Click here to perform a security repair.
Infection detected in the background. Your computer is now attacked by spyware and rogue software. Eliminate the infection safely, perform a security scan and deletion now.
The reason why the scan results and the messages should be ignored is that they are not real and there is nothing wrong with your computer save for the fact that you have been infected by this rogue. Win 7 Total Security generates these messages and negative scan results, because it wants you to spend your money and buy the full version of the program. However, by doing so you would expose your financial data to cyber criminals and thus they will be able to access your bank account and steal your money.
Do not wait for this to happen. Erase Win 7 Total Security with a reliable computer security tool and make sure that no rogue ever infects your computer again.
