How to remove Internet Security Suite (Uninstall Guide)

Tell your friends:
Internet Security Suite is a fake security program that pretends to scan the computer for malicious software and reports false system security threats. Once installed, the rogue program will report that your computer is infected with all sorts of malware, e.g. trojans, worms, spyware and other viruses. Internet Security Suite will try to frighten you into paying for a full version of the program. Do not fall victim to this rogue application. You should remove it from your computer as soon as possible. We've got the removal instructions to help you to remove Internet Security Suite from your computer for free using legitimate anti-malware software. Please follow the removal instructions below.

A screen shot of the Internet Security Suite malware
This rogue program is from the same family as Smart Engine. It's a typical rip-off rogue. Internet Security Suite is promoted mostly through the use of fake online scanners, infected websites and other malicious software. The bad guys also use various other misleading methods to distribute their bogus software, e.g. social engineering and spam emails. If you somehow ended up with this rogue program then you will be greeted with the misleading Internet Security Suite screen every time you login to Windows. Typically, such rogue programs are not very dangerous. They cannot delete your files or steal sensitive information. However, Internet Security Suite and other similar rogues can come bundled with Trojans and rootkits. You may even become a part of a botnet. That's why you should remove Internet Security Suite and any related malware from your computer using reputable anti-malware software.

While Internet Security Suite is running, it will display fake security alerts and notifications from your Windows taskbar. The rogue program will claim that your computer is infected with trojans and that your sensitive information can be stolen.







Please ignore such fake alerts. Just like the false scan results, these fake security alerts were made to scare you into thinking that your computer is infected when the only real infection is Internet Security Suite itself. What is more, the rogue will block some executables and may even hijack Internet Explorer. It goes without saying that you should get rid of Internet Security Suite. Most importantly, do not purchase it. If you have already bought this rogue program then please contact your credit card company, dispute the charges and cancel your credit card. Then please follow Internet Security Suite removal instructions below. When the rogue program is gone, please install reliable anti-virus software to protect your computer against malicious software. We recommend ESET NOD32. If you have any questions or additional information about Internet Security Suite, please leave a comment. Good luck and be safe online!
