I did everything which includes, Anti Malware, spyhunter, spydoctor, antispyware, avast, and even the regedit trick. It keeps coming back. There is nothing you can do. I am now going to uninstall/reinstall windows xp and pray that it is gone. I won't be suprised if it is still there. This SYSTEM SECURITY is something more that just rogueware or whatever it is people may want to name the latest PC flaw. Dont bother wasting your computer's resources downloading all the latest spyware killer programs. They are all worthless. Just burn everything to dvd/cd that you really want and kiss the rest of your files goodbye. And when you are finished reinstalling your system, but your PC on ebay and buy a MAC. Sorry about this negativity but i have been at this for 3 days now.

The version I found had the following numbers 2146056633.exe. The way I found it was through other web page (anti spyware 101). The numbers for the executable file on that page are different (5386543871..). This version won't allow the installation of antyspyware/antivirus programs it just shuts them down. Even it shuts off the browser if you are downloading them directly from either Mozilla or IE.

With the information from the mentioned place the folders were the files were locate were identified and deleted. (Documents and Settings\allusers\applicationdata). This was not enough to get rid of what was causing the installation rejection of anti virus/spyware programs.

I tried to install Malawarebytes in Safe mode with networking and had the same problem it rejected installation. I proceded to start in safe mode and was able to install Malawarebytes although I could not update the program.

A quick scan was launched that identified a lot of Adwares, Rogues including system security. These were all removed with Malawarebytes.

This was not enough yet and computer was shutdown and started again in normal mode to get latest updates. After this it was shutdown again and started in safe mode to run a full scan with the latest updates. I am waiting from the results of this but I think it is working.
Thanks

The last Malwarebyte run finally fixed the problem since I can see Mcafee running. (Thats the only useful purpose it has right now). I think it has been cured. I can post in Hijacthis the log files from Malwarebytes and also the Hijackthis list as well however this will be the one after the Malwarebytes scan that might not be useful to you.
Thanks for such a superb software.

Hello.
Any log is a start, then we can make sure it's gone.

If you have XP then i can help well it mite work for Vista but i had system security stuck on my comp. And what I did was go to the start menu, all programs, accessories, system tools, system restore. And from there you click the first one selected that says "restore computer to an earlier time" (before you go system security) then like it says select a bold date. then hit next and just follow it through. So at the end your comp. should go to shut down mode and it will restore then and restart and your comp should be fine! Well let me know if that helps any of you wahoo's out there.

And I honestly think that all of you that buy this stuff or download this stuff to remove system security you are just wasting our time for god sake the person trying to help it possibly trying to give you an actual product (but really isn't) they name it that when its actually a virus. So please dont waste time or money downloading this stuff.

Downloading what? Malwarebyte's Antimalware is free. Your username is also not allowed, please check your PM.

But doing what i said only works if one of the bold dates are a day before you got system security. Oh and by the way this would probably work for all virus stuff. unless your comp. if f*#* and can't do jack then idk what to say you can try what i said on vista comps. or just search system restore.
