A few hours ago, I was watching video on my laptop and suddenly My Safe PC 2014 program popped up. It looked like a security tool and scanned my computer automatically. Each time I tried to close it and uninstall, but it didn’t allow me to do that. I don’t know what is that. Is it a virus or real?
My Safe PC 2014 is categorized as a Rogue program that pretends itself as a security program but has neither the ability to detect nor remove any of the threats. This fake antivirus program is just a useless software designed by hackers to mislead PC users into paying for their full versions and then collect their money. This parasite can be attached to other programs or files downloaded to the computer or it comes together with compromised attachments to spam emails. That is the way it gets inside the computers without any permission.
When this malware is inside a targeted machine, it starts its malicious plan immediately on system start up.
