Windows Safety Toolkit is yet another illusion that is sometimes made in the minds of deceived users. They think that this program is the one that can help their systems become clean, but this is the way they got scared by the rogue makers. So, instead of actually healing your PC the crooks prepared this junkware gadget to become the ruining force armed to damage your system. The malware simply strives for your money without rendering what it actually promises.
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.
So, as soon as Windows Safety Toolkit malware is installed onto your system it immediately runs the series of fake scans of your PC. It is peculiar also that it reports many security threats that it supposedly revealed during its fake scan. Keep in mind that such scan lasts within just a couple of seconds, within a twinkle of an eye as some say. Obviously, serious threats can’t be detected at the lapse of such a short time interval.
The aim of the malware is to steal your funds, but it tries to make this steal as some allegedly necessary procedure. The scam warns you of fake threats and then urges you to buy its license that is good for nothing, in fact. So, if you trust the hoax you are simply losing your money. Remember it can’t save your system from viruses, being a Trojan program itself. This is why trusting the rogue is not a good way of acting. So, instead of keeping this junkware please take all necessary steps to delete it effectively.
The malware described above (Windows Safety Toolkit) does not come with uninstaller. You can’t delete it so easily as other programs on your computer (legitimate ones). In addition, the running of real anti-virus scanners sometimes is also blocked, as well as their downloads. It is much better if you first restart your workstation into safe mode with networking and then get back to this same page to download the software recommended for removal of malwares.
