Windows Internet Watchdog

What is Windows Internet Watchdog?

Windows Internet Watchdog is a rogue anti-spyware program that replaces Windows Web Watchdog, Windows AntiBreach Patrol, Windows Antivirus Patrol, Windows Pro Defence Kit, and many other identical threats. The design of the latest rogue security program has no changed compared with its predecessors, but judging from the name of the programs, cyber criminals are getting more and more creative. Windows Internet Watchdog should be removed from the computer as soon as possible because it only disrupts the performance of the system by disabling executable files and restricting your access to the Internet.  The malicious security tool belongs to the Rogue.VirusDoctro family, which is also referred to as Fake.Vimes. In any case, Windows Internet Watch should be replaced with a legitimate and powerful spyware and malware prevention tool.

How does Windows Internet Watchdog work?

Once installed, the malicious application creates its registry entries and files so that it can start running every time you log on to the computer. Windows Internet Watchdog displays its fake scanner, which is supposed to scare you into thinking that the computer is infected and that your personal information stored on the PC is in danger. If you cannot launch any computer application or browse the Internet, do not worry. These symptoms will disappear if you remove Windows Internet Watchdog from the computer.

Windows Internet Watchdog cannot identify malware and spyware threats. The scan results are falsified to deceive you into activating the application. It is important to note that by purchasing the license key for the application, not only can you waste up to $99.9, but you also risk your personal information because the criminals get hold of your personal information, including your credit card number, its CVV number and other important details.

How to remove Windows Internet Watchdog?

When it comes to removal, we can offer you three options. The easiest way to remove Windows Internet Watchdog is to use a powerful spyware removal tool. Since the rogue anti-spyware program blocks executable files, you should register the application using one of these keys:
