Vista Internet Security is a part of the recent malware series which infects Windows Vista, XP and Windows 7 operating systems and are capable of changing their name and appearance depending on the OS the computer is using.

Vista Internet Security spreads with the help of a number of corrupt websites which use trojans to download and install the parasite.

Unfortunately, it's nothing but a scam - Vista Internet Security takes your money and leaves you with nothing. The program is also capable of performing malicious actions which might cause serious security problems. So its better to remove it from your computer and keep away from Vista Internet Security in the future.
