My Safe PC 2014 Description
My Safe PC 2014 is a rogue security application which belongs to a large family of rogue security software. When My Safe PC 2014 enters a computer system, My Safe PC 2014 carries out a known scam that involves stealing money from inexperienced computer users. To do this, My Safe PC 2014 pesters the computer with false positives and fake system scan results meant to make the computer believe that their computer system is severely infected. My Safe PC 2014 also blocks access to your applications and interferes with legitimate security software installed on your computer system. The purpose of My Safe PC 2014 is to convince inexperienced computer users that they need to purchase a ‘full version’ of this bogus security program. If My Safe PC 2014 is installed on your computer, ESG PC security researchers strongly recommend removing this bogus security program immediately with the help of a reliable, fully updated anti-malware application.
My Safe PC 2014 Changes the PC Settings in Order to Fool Its User
My Safe PC 2014 makes harmful changes to the infected computer system. These changes allow My Safe PC 2014 to start up automatically when the victim logs into Windows, display fake error messages, and block access to other components on the infected computer system. My Safe PC 2014 displays a fake scan that claims that the victim’s computer system is full of viruses and Trojans and that it is necessary to update My Safe PC 2014 in order to remove them. This ‘update’ is not free and does nothing to protect your computer system. In fact, My Safe PC 2014 does not have the ability to detect or remove malware on a computer system and is, in fact, a form of malware itself. Other problems associated with My Safe PC 2014 include the fact that My Safe PC 2014 prevents access to other applications, causes browser redirects and prevents legitimate security software from operating normally.
My Safe PC 2014 Needs to Be Out of Your Machine as Soon As Possible
