Security Mechanic Removal

Recommended Posts

Security Mechanic is a rogue security program. Security Mechanic is promoted through the use of advertisements that pretend to be online anti-malware scanners. The advertisement will pretend to scan and when it is finished it will then state that your computer is infected and that you should download and install Security Mechanic to protect your computer. What you are seeing is just an advertisement and it has absolutely no way of knowing what is running on your computer - it's just a ploy to get you to install the software.

In order to remove Security Mechanic from your system, please follow the directions below:
