What is Windows Protection Tool?
Windows users need to beware of the new rogue anti-spyware – Windows Protection Tool. This fake AV could be offered as a legitimate malware removal application via a misleading online scanner; however, it could also be installed secretly using various drive-by download and social engineering scams. The infection could be running with the help of malicious files as well as other dangerous infections. If you have found the rogue running on the operating system and you cannot explain its entrance, you can suspect malignant, malware downloading Trojans. According to Anti-Spyware-101.com, if you do not remove Windows Protection Tool and other potentially running infections, your virtual security could be endangered. If you are not comfortable with this outcome, you should delete the malicious computer infections right away, and this report will help you perform this task.
How does Windows Protection Tool act?
Windows Protection Booster, Windows AntiVirus Booster and Windows AntiVirus Helper are the clones of the newly discovered Windows Protection Tool. As you can tell by the names of these infections, they are targeted at the Windows operating system. Do not let the name of the rogue anti-spyware deceive you. Every part of the fictitious security tool is meant to create an illusion that it is a legitimate program which you can trust to remove attacking malware. Are you intimidated by the infections represented by Windows Protection Tool’s scanner? Well, you should not be because they are fictitious and are simply meant to fool you into clicking the Remove All button presented underneath. If you click this button, you will be routed to the rogue’s purchase page.
If you are thinking about which subscription term you should use, we advise that you ignore the purchase of the fictitious anti-spyware tool altogether. Whether you spend $49.95 or $99.90, your operating system will not be protected and the malicious computer infections will not be deleted. In reality, the rogue does not even have the technical ability to scan the computer, identify threats or remove them. The fictitious interface, the bogus scanner and the misleading pop-up notifications are just bait to trick you into thinking that you need to purchase the full version of the clandestine Windows Protection Tool.
How to remove Windows Protection Tool?
Have you discovered that you cannot launch the browsers to research the rogue and install automatic malware removal software to delete it? You may also be denied access to the Task Manager and Registry Editor, both of which could be used to delete Windows Protection Tool manually. This is because the fake AV can block executable files. Fortunately, there is a special registration code (0W000-000B0-00T00-E0021) which you could use to disable these symptoms. Click the question mark icon presented on the rogue anti-spyware and select Register to find four boxes dedicated to the Product key. By activating this code you will enable the full version of the clandestine infection, and so there are no more reasons to waste your money on this fake product. We strongly recommend installing automatic malware removal software to delete the remaining rogue. Use the instructions below if the code does not work.
