Remove Securebit Technologies Free Antivirus (Uninstall Guide)

Securebit Technologies Free Antivirus is a computer virus, which pretends to be a legitimate security program and claims that malware has been detected on your computer. If you try to remove these infections, Securebit Technologies will state that you need to buy its premium version before being able to do so.

Securebit Technologies targets users browsing Internet websites, and rely on social engineering to deliver its payload.
On infected or hacked websites users are prompted by a pop-up window that has been carefully crafted to resemble a legitimate security warning. These pop-up windows typically alert a user of a computer infection, and then prompt the user to download and install Securebit Technologies to resolve the apparent issue.
Some of the infections may have come from users downloading an infected codec file when they were trying to watch a video online, or users who receive a spam email and open an infected email attachment.

Once installed, Securebit Technologies will display fake security alerts that are designed to think that your data is at risk or that your computer is severely infected.These messages include:

Warning: Unable to clean all files.
