One Way to Kill a Rogue Anti-virus

There are many Rogue Anti virus and Anti-Spyware programs that pretend to offer you a scan and fix your problems except if you click on any of their buttons they start an install of their program which offers no real protection or cleanup.

These Rogue programs can be very difficult to remove and what makes it worse is that most anti virus software does not stop them. One thing to do is when you see a small menu pop up that's some so called security program or anti virus you never have heard of before,hold down the the control key on your keyboard while holding this key down
press the alt key while not releasing the other two then click on the delete key,this will bring up windows task manager on most windows systems then click on applications
button and then you will see security Firefox or some strange anti virus name then click with the left mouse button end task this should close out the rogue program.

Malwarebytes Antimalware is one of if not the best tool for removing such rogue programs.
