Vista Security Pro 2013

Malware removal

Vista Security Pro 2013 is a fraudulent program that claims to be able to help rid your computer of viruses and other security threats, but it can’t actually do any of these things. It’s goal is to take your money and run, and it will also try to fill your computer with junk along the way.

You might think those Vista Security Pro 2013 popups look pretty convincing, or at least pretty scary, but don’t let them draw you into their trap. Sure, they will claim to “detect” a slew of malicious infections on your computer, but it shows the same phony alerts and warnings to everyone, and none of it is grounded in reality. The last thing you should do is take anything this program tells you seriously.

This program wouldn’t be bothering you right now if you’d had an actual antivirus program in place, and installing a program like that is still the best way to get rid of Vista Security Pro 2013 and its ilk. But a lot of people have trouble downloading stuff when their systems or infected, or maybe you can’t afford to pay for a real antispyware program right now. Whatever the case, we definitely recommend doing a full system scan with a security program, but below we’ll still provide Vista Security Pro 2013 manual removal instructions.

Note: In any files I mention above, “%UserProfile%” is a variable referring to your current user’s profile folder. (Not an iEuphemism for muth@fugg@#*!@.) So if you’re using Windows NT/2000/XP/7, by default this is “C:\Documents and Settings\[CURRENT USER]” (e.g., “C:\Documents and Settings\NoahFence”).
