Security Master AV description

Security Master AV is a misleading security tool which is also a copy of malwares such as My Security Engine, Security Antivirus, Security Guard. All theses bogus systems are from the same rogue Virus Doctor family. The parasite spreads via trojan which enters the system through vulnerabilities. It creates a perfect background for malware to come in.

Once installed it will show false system security warnings and the will prompt you to pay small fees for a registered version of this program to remove threats that don’t even exist. Malware neither has an ability to detect nor terminate computer threats therefore it shouldn’t be trusted. Security Master AV can also redirect your browser to deceptive websites that advertises this counterfeit program. This is a scam. You are fully safe to ignore theses warning messages. Choose reputable anti-spyware tool and terminate the parasite as soon as possible.

    Security Master AV has apparently blocked my ability to download Spyware Doctor. I have tried uninstalling spyware doctor and installing, both in regular and safe mode. While it seems to download ok, I am unable to get “spyware Doctor to Open. I still am able to open PC tools registry mechanic, and, I believe, Privacy Guardian. Any help?
