How to Remove Security Solution 2011 (Uninstall Guide)

Tell your friends:
Security Solution 2011 is a rogue antivirus application that offers misleading reports of viruses found on your computer. It displays fake security alerts and balloon notifications to make you think that your computer is infected with spyware, Trojans and other malicious software. The fake AV program requires a purchase to unlock the full version and remove discovered viruses from your computer. If that doesn't do enough to convince you to buy the fake antivirus application, Security Solution 2011 will start popping up pornographic and Viagra websites. You can encounter this rogue anti-virus when you do a Google search for pretty much any popular event or software, including anti-virus software, too. It is triggered by JavaScript code embedded in fake virus scanners. Upon clicking such site an animation is launched that looks like a scan is being performed. It may report hundreds of infections on your computer even though it doesn't actually scan the system. As you can see, Security Solution 2011 is nothing more but a scam. Although, Security Solution 2011 is easy to remove; it may block your anti-virus software and hijack web browsers. So, if you have problems removing this rogue anti-virus application from your computer, please follow the removal instructions below.





The new variant, just like the previous identified AntiVirus AntiSpyware 2011 and AntiVirus System 2011 versions, displays really annoying security alerts and pop-ups to make you think that your computer is infected. It displays this fake Security Center Alert that looks a lot like the genuine one, and claims that your computer is infected with Win64.BIT.Looker.exe.



It also shows another fake Security Center alert saying that someone is stealing your sensitive information, Windows ID and licence key and some other important stuff. Fake error message:



Security Solution 2011 hijacker Internet Explorer and may redirect you to a fraudulent payment processing site where you can purchase the software which will then remove the threats from your computer. Security Solution 2011 related websites:
  • securitysolution2011.com
  • securitysolution2011ltd.com
  • securitysolution2011corp.com


Security Solution 2011 is not a virus, but more like a Trojan horse that pretends to be a legitimate anti-virus application. It cannot delete your files and steal your credit card information. Under no circumstances should you purchase this phony anti-virus software. If you already did, you will need to cancel your credit card. Then please follow the steps in the removal guide below to remove Security Solution 2011 and related malware. If you need help removing this malware, please leave a comment below.

I have followed the process of putting my laptop into "Safe Mode with Networking" but I can not access the Internet in Safe Mode.

Therefore, I can not download the appropiate softaware to get rid of Securuity Solution.
