How to Remove a Security Alert Virus

By Thomas King

The Security Alert virus, also known as the Windows Security Alert virus, is a computer virus created by Spyware Protect 2009 that disguises itself as a legitimate Windows security feature. The virus displays a notification in the bottom of your computer which states “Windows reports that computer is infected.” The notification then provides a link to “scan” your computer and remove the risk. Clicking on this link will only result in additional viruses infecting your computer. If your computer contracts this virus, it will need to be removed.
