No doubt, Windows Pro Rescuer was designed quite professionally, but this is simply the trick how rogue makers want to convince users with outward impressions of imaginary powerful anti-malware utility. Surely, the hackers were quite instrumental in picking up the name for their brand new creature for today. Well, we tell you now that this application is a rogue security application and not the legitimate tool at all. So, making this hoax as your anti-virus fortress it is like building the house on sand. Soon it will collapse and will not be strong to defend your security and privacy.
Here is the brief list of problems this particular hoax causes:
- Blocking Task Manager by replacing it with its own, fake one.
- Blocking downloads of legitimate security software.
- Blocking execution of available anti-viruses (already installed on infected computer).
- Showing permanent alerts, warnings and notifications about fake infections detected.
- Prompting users into paying for the license of the rogue.
- Possible browser redirect problems.
- General system slowdown.
Windows Pro Rescuer acts like all other rogues. First, it enters your system when you don’t realize it is at hand. It modifies your registry parameters allowing the hoax to be launched automatically together with each system startup. Secondly, it runs fake system scans each time you switch your PC on. Thirdly, it reports numerous fabricated infections, says that you’re in a desperate need of some anti-malware tool to get rid of them all. Finally, it leads you to the page where you will be instructed by the malware to enter your personal details, as well as important financial information (your bank card data) to process the payment for a totally useless utility. Remember – doing so is just the waste of funds instead of good investment. So, whatever the hoax recommends you to do – ignore its bountiful misleading, scary and deceitful warnings.
Getting rid of Windows Pro Rescuer scareware is a challenge for many security blogs and applications today. There are some that can do it totally for free, whether their effectiveness depends largely on whether their anti-virus database is timely and duly updated. Try some anti-viruses to make sure your PC is completely free of this scam. If you can’t download or run them (see their list in the right-hand panel of this blog) then restart your computer into safe mode with networking and get back to this same page to download them again.
