Remove Personal Security (Uninstall Guide)

Personal Security is a rogue anti-spyware program from the
same family as Cyber
. This program is promoted through the use of malware that will
install it on your computer without your permission. In order to protect itself,
this program will automatically attempt to terminate security programs that
may help to remove it. When installed, Personal Security will be configured
to start automatically when Windows starts. Once started, it will scan your

problems with the proper operation of Windows. Therefore, please do not act

Personal Security also employs numerous methods where it tries to trick you
into thinking you are infected.
