PC Security 2009 malware removal information
PC Security 2009 is a malware that projects itself as a legit software and displays fake and annoying security pop ups and alerts convincing user that their system is infected with malware. Some of the common alerts are:-

"WARNING! PC Security 2009 has found 30 useless and unwanted files on your computer!
19 of those those items are considered as critical privacy compromising content 8 of those those items are considered as medium privacy threats
8 of those those items are considered to be junk content of low privacy threats
Personal data at the reach of anyone's hand
Internet history records available
Compromising and adult material stored on your system
Chat session's logs and personal Emails easily reachable"

"Trojan Detected!
A piece of malicious code was found in your system which can replicate itself if no action is taken. Click here to have your system cleaned by PC Security 2009."

If you click on these alerts, you will then be prompted to purchase the program in order to fix these problems. Though we did not purchase this program, our experience with other rogues like this has shown us that purchasing and registering the program does not actually make the program useful. In fact, because you gave credit card information you are now exposed to identity theft.

I'll recommend running super antispyware on the infected machine. First boot in safe mode and then run super antispyware.

Also try stopping the following processes.
