InSysSecure is a European based rogue security program that targets users in German, Italian and French speaking countries. Infection with InSysSecure can come from downloading questionable programs via shareware or freeware sites or by installing video codecs on online movie viewing sites.
Once it has installed itself, you will become bombarded with alerts, warning messages and phony scan results all informing you of dangerous “infections” or “infected files.” They are all false messages and should not be heeded under any circumstances.
InSysSecure is a replica from the WiniSoft family and is similar to other fake anti-spyware programs such as PCProtectar, GuardPcs and APcDefender. InSysSecure will configure itself to run each time you run Windows and will embed phony “infected” files that will later come up in your system scans. This program is quite authentic seeming because a fake Windows Security Center will be displayed in addition to alerts from a phony Windows task bar. Do not be fooled, however, as you are infected with spyware. Here is a sample warning in English:
