Re: Microsoft Security Essentials and "My Security Engine" malware

None of the security software are 100% effective because malware authors are working hard to pass the defenses or trick people to let malware install. The malware that has infected your system is of morphing type. This may arrive to your system through web-site usually an ad. When you receive a fake pop-up then perform the below things:
Press ctrl+Alt+Del and this will open task manager. Kill all the instances of web-browser such as iexplorer.exe. Go to Control panel/Internet and delete all cookies and Internet files.
After performing this do s full scanning of your system.

My security engine is a really very dangerous program and it belong to Security Guard family. It attacks your system without letting you know. When program is installed by trojan on your system it is configured to start automatically when you login into your system. When you have scan your system with Malwarebytes’Anti-Malware and remove the infected file.In order to make your system much faster than before perform the below three steps:
