What is Windows Paramount Protection?
If you are not allowed to access your desktop and run any of your legitimate programs, we believe that you have encountered Windows Paramount Protection, which acts as a tool that can detect and remove different types of malicious software. However, you should definitely not trust it because this application has been created for one purpose only – to extort money from computer users. This sneaky program belongs to FakeVimes family of infections; however, it is not the only one out there. You should also beware of Windows Antivirus Master, Windows Safety Master and the like because they work in the same manner. You should definitely remove Windows Paramount Protection if it gets on your system because you will not be able to use your PC unless you do that.
How does Windows Paramount Protection act?
Windows Paramount Protection is very convincing because one of its main aims is to scare innocent computer users into believing that their computers are full of serious threats and thus they have to acquire a full version of this program if they want to remove them all from the system. The more reliable users usually believe this fake tool because it tends to show various pop-up warnings (see below), performs a scan and provides a list of infections supposedly running on your system as well as does not allow you to access Task Manager, Control Panel, and other crucial parts of your PC. The truth is that it just tries not to be removed. Thus, we suggest that you do not buy the license of Windows Paramount Protection because you will lose your money and, most importantly, reveal your credit card details to cyber criminals.
