How To Remove ESET Smart Security Enhanced Protection Mode Virus – Virus Removal



ESET Smart Security Enhanced Protection Mode Virus is a 100% fake antivirus program infecting computers running Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7 operating systems. If there is a red ESET Smart Security Enhanced Protection Mode window appearing, then you are infected with this virus. The red window and taskbar icon generated by this virus is not from ESET NOD32 Smart Security. The virus knows that you are running an ESET program and is trying to deceive you.


This virus appears to be infecting computer users through a fake Adobe Flash update. It is recommended that you do not update Adobe Flash unless the update is coming directly from Adobe servers. You must be extremely careful what you download on the internet. Please note that there may be other ways in which this virus is spreading and not just through fake Adobe Flash updates.


This virus recognizes that you are using ESET NOD32 and will camouflage itself so that you feel everything is normal. This is so you will believe that your virus protection still exists. However, your virus protection is gone.


When windows launches you will see a beige window stating that you are protected. It will show a fake database release date which coincidentally matches the exact date and time you launched Windows. This is another tactic aimed at reassuring you that everything is fine with your computer.
