What is Windows Interactive Safety?
If you are planning to allow Windows Interactive Safety to “stay” on your PC, you probably do not know how malicious it is. This computer infection seeking to gain users’ money is a clone of such malicious application as Windows Ultimate Safeguard, Windows Antivirus Machine, Windows Active Guard and others. Due to its characteristics, the malware is attributed to the Rogue.VirusDoctor family. If you find Windows Interactive Safety on your computer, do not wait and delete it as soon as you can.
Once the infection is installed, you will find how intolerable it can be. It disables access to the Internet and some executable files and hides Task Managers and Registry Editor. You may notice that the system’s performance has decreased, as well. The malware disables the Internet so that you cannot remove it with a removal tool downloaded, whereas such tools as Registry Editor and Task Manager are hidden so that you do not remove Windows Interactive Safety manually. All this is done to make you think that the system is badly infected with different types of malware.
To prove that you are infected, Windows Interactive Safety presents simulated scans and infections such as Virus.Win32.Sality, Trojan-DDoS.Win32 and others. Ignore all the threats that the malware presents and do not try to delete them on your own, because they are not present in the system. Instead of a supposed virus you may delete an important file of the system and impair the system’s performance or even cause a crash. Moreover, turn a blind eye to the rogue’s simulates messages saying that your data is at risk. Learn how they look like and do not purchase a supposedly full version of Windows Interactive Safety:
Keylogger activity detected. System information security is at risk. It is recommended to activate protection and run a full system scan.
Software without a digital signature detected. Your system files are at risk. We strongly advise you to activate your protection.
Potential malware detected.
It is recommended to activate protection and perform a thorough system scan to remove the malware.
As you can see, the examples provided highlight how the rogue can encourage you to purchase its imaginary full version to get your money. If you buy that “full” version, you lose your money but get an activation key which, when entered in an appropriate field, supposedly activates the rogue and you do not receive annoying messages, etc, but the very infection Windows Interactive Safety still remains in the system. Luckily, you can delete the rogue if you follow the instructions provided:
