Home Safety Essentials is a rogue antivirus program that spreads on computers through Trojan viruses. The program provides fake information about security problems on your computer and then recommends getting a full version of Home Safety Essentials claiming that this would solve your security issues.
The application is often promoted on different websites where you are offered to scan your system for infections. Later on the scanner reports that your system is infected with a bunch of different infections and recommends downloading a program in order to get rid of all of them. You shouldn’t trust this type of websites as usually they are scams. So purchasing something that is offered to be purchase on such websites is not a good idea.
However, if Home Safety Essentials is downloaded to your computer, it will be configured to start automatically without your permission every time your computer boots up. Basically, you see a scanner running on your system and it creates a list of infections supposedly detected on your machine. If you try to remove those files, the program will ask you to purchase a program first. Do not doubt that it’s a trick created by the scammers only to swindle your money away.
You should remove Home Safety Essentials with a reliable security tool as soon as you notice it on your computer. Security experts recommend using a reliable antispyware program for the easiest and safest elimination of Home Safety Essentials.
