Cyber Security Removal
For those unfortunate enough to have it on their computers, Cyber Security removal can be an arduous task. Masked as an antivirus program, it hogs your computer’s resources and shuts down its processes until you break down and buy the “removal tool” that it offers. The kicker, of course, is that you’re ultimately giving the Cyber Security virus access to your bank account in order to remove itself. Use the following guide to identify and get rid of Cyber Security without forking over any cash to the virus’ creators.
- The first step in Cyber Security removal is to confirm the virus’ identity. This specific program has some hallmark symptoms. On startup, it will run fake virus scans indicating that your computer is infected. When you open a web browser, every website you attempt to navigate to will redirect to the Cyber Security webpage, rendering the internet useless. Additionally, there will be a shield-shaped icon in your system tray with incessant warnings and pop-ups.
- Once confirmed, end the processes associated with Cyber Security. To do this, you’ll have to open up the task manager by pressing "ctrl+alt+delete". Then, click the “processes” tab on the top of the window. Look for the two distinct processes associated with Cyber Security. One is called “tsc.exe”, and the other is “csc.exe”. Right click both of them, and select “end process” from the menu that appears.
- With its processes stopped, you should be able to use an anti-malware program to remove the virus. If all goes according to plan up to this point, Cyber Security removal is as simple as running a scan with an antivirus program such as Malwarebytes or HijackThis. Either of these programs will in all likelihood pick up and remove Cyber Security automatically.
- In some cases, Cyber Security might still control your computer even after you end its processes. Malware like Cyber Security tends to evolve with time, and has gotten pretty sophisticated in recent years. If you’ve ended the virus’ processes and still can’t open up a real antivirus program, there is another route to removal that you can take. Try restarting your computer and going into “safe mode” when it is booting up. On most computers, pressing the “f8” key during startup will allow you to access this mode. It runs your operating system in a bare-bones manner, usually blocking viruses such as Cyber Security’s access to your computer processes. In safe mode, you should be able to open up and run your virus scanner.
