Live Security Platinum Removal

My computer was infected by a virus called, Live Security Platinum. After boot into Windows, suddenly a window that looks like an “antivirus” appeared at the center of the screen.

I’m not sure how and when did this “antivirus” get into my computer, but it is clearly not an antivirus.

Here is the screenshot of the virus window.

It disabled all running applications and blocks you from executing other applications like Mozilla Firefox, MS Paint, etc. You can’t do anything until you register (purchase) the “antivirus”.

Luckily I have my iPad near me, so I Google the solutions.

And here is the easiest solution that I have prepared for you… Just follow these steps to remove it from your computer.

The Easiest Way to Remove Live Security Platinum Virus

Note: Please make sure your computer is connected to the Internet before proceed the removal process.
  1. First, what you need to do is to register Live Security Platinum to allow you run other applications like Mozilla Firefox which you will use in the next step. But don’t worry. Here is the registration code that you can use to register the software:
    Warning: Don’t click OK or do anything when the virus prompts you to clean your PC after the registration. Just proceed to Step #2.
  2. Next, open your favourite Internet browser like Mozilla Firefox, and download free Malwarebytes at We will use this awesome malware removal tool to remove the virus.
  3. Install Malwarebytes and go to the installation folder when finished.
    C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware
  4. Open the Chameleon folder, and double click svchost.exe to run it.
  5. Malwarebytes Chameleon will start update Malwarebytes Anti-Malware database and then it will terminate all malicious processes that are running in the memory. Please be patient because it will take a while to complete. During this process you will see the Live Security Platinum window is now gone from your screen. Happy?! Not yet…

  6. Upon completion, Malwarebytes will open automatically and it will perform a Quick Scan.
  7. When the scan is complete, click on Show Results and remove all the threats found in your computer.
  8. Restart your computer when it asks you to restart.
  9. (Recommended) Perform another Quick Scan using Malwarebytes to ensure Live Security Platinum has been completely removed from your computer.

That’s all. Nine steps that you need to do in order to remove Live Security Platinum virus. Good luck! 😉

  4. Live Security Platinum virus could be rather dangerous for the computer. I have a friend who had his computer infected and it was really a tough task to get rid of it. Thanks for the detailed guide provided.

    • Yup, it’s a really bad one. When my wife got it, it was masquerading as Adobe Flash. It asked for permission for Adobe Flash to make changes to the computer and even listed the developer as confirmed as Adobe. Then it kills everything and hides itself in fifteen thousand different places…

      Good thing Malwarebytes is so good!

  5. Very smart… that was very helpfull.
    thank you,

  6. Cant thank u enough..!
    luckily i found this. :)))

  7. you are definetly the man! this worked perfectly! thank you sooooo much!!

  8. I’m confused about the first step, how do I register Live Security Platinum? And will I need to unregister again, once it has been deleted?

    • Click on the Registration icon, and enter the registration key. You no need to unregister after the virus has been deleted from your PC.

  9. wah..i removed this virus by delete some Live security Platinum registry in safe mode with networking

  10. Okay I’ve had difficulty with a few steps, but I managed to download Malwarebytes and it DID NOT remove the Live Security Platinum program from my computer. I never had to register the product to use FIrefox, I just used the pop-up when they want you to purchase it. SO I’ve restarted my computer twice now and I can’t get rid of this program with Malwarebytes… what am I doing wrong?

  11. Thank you so, so much 🙂 I couldn’t have figured it out by myself! You’re awsome 🙂
