No computer user is a stranger to computer system infections, and it goes without saying that getting infected with malware is excruciatingly frustrating. Even though there are many types of malicious computer infections out there, this time the limelight falls onto Live Security Platinum, seeing as it has managed to infected multiple computers worldwide in a very short period of time. This infection presents a list of problems to users who want to remove Live Security Platinum from their systems, and only the most persistent ones eventually succeed.
In general, Live Security Platinum is not a very surprising or shocking infection, because it follows the well-ploughed way of other rogue antispyware applications. It is actually a variant of such infections as Smart Protection 2012 and Smart Fortress 2012, so it is easy to see what Live Security Platinum is trying to achieve. The main goal of the rogue is to lock the user out of his computer and then hold the operating system hostage until the user succumbs and pays for the non-existent antivirus service. Although these days most of the users are smart enough to tell a real antivirus program apart from such rogues as Live Security Platinum, sometimes the disturbing infection symptoms (such as inability to access the Internet or load any executable files) leaves the user in the despair and he opts of the least preferable option – spending money.
However, instead of paying for the non-existent service or simply reinstalling the operating system from scratch, the user can always terminate Live Security Platinum, making sure that the rogue does not come back again. As usual, in such a situation there are two basic ways to remove a rogue antispyware application – manual and automatic. Automatic removal involves using a computer security program of choice that detects and terminates Live Security Platinum automatically. This method is recommended for those users who are not familiar with the way their operating system works and do not have enough knowledge to work with the Registry Editor.
On the other hand, Live Security Platinum presents a problem even for those who choose to remove it automatically. Namely, it is the rogue’s ability to block the Internet connection. Luckily, it can be bypassed with the following activation key:
If Live Security Platinum were a real antivirus program, it would grant the user the activation key after the license purchase, but this is definitely not the case. The so-called “activation” or “registration” is only temporary whether it has actually been or purchased or whether the user found the activation key by himself. Using the registration key above will allow the user to access the Internet again for the time being, and while the rogue is in hibernation mode, “thinking” that it has achieved its goal, the user has to install (or run, if it’s installed already) a security program of choice and erase Live Security Platinum as soon as possible.
The activation code can also be utilized in the manual removal as well. After all, the user has to have access to system tools in order to remove Live Security Platinum from the system manually. Nevertheless, manual removal is recommended only those users who already have experienced in dealing with computer infections on their own.
To put it simply, manual rogue removal has three basic steps. One, the user has to open Windows Task Manager and terminate the processes related to Live Security Platinum, in this case. Then, he has to open Registry editor and delete all the registry keys and entries that have been dropped there by the rogue when it installed itself. Finally, once the user deletes all the files associated with the rogue, Live Security Platinum should be gone from the target computer for good. It would also be a good idea to reboot the computer after rogue removal.
Generally, it does not really matter which manner of rogue removal the user chooses, as long as at the end of the day Live Security Platinum is gone from the system for good. Latest Live Security Platinum clone is System Care Antivirus
