Do you known what Windows Advanced Toolkit is?
A “Stop” sign to a fraudulent application Windows Advanced Toolkit which is a product of the criminals that created Windows Proactive Safety, Windows Maintenance Guard, Windows Security Web Patch and others which belong to Rogue.VirusDoctor family. Why is this professional-looking application bogus even if it presents characteristics of legitimate Windows applications? The writers of Windows Advanced Toolkit used Windows name and interface of Windows OS applications to deceive gullible Windows users that Windows Advanced Toolkit is a security tool which protects the system and removes infections. However, the facts have shown completely different reality.
Although the rogue looks like a security tool, unfortunately, its primary objective is to get your money and your sensitive data such as bank account or credit card number, CVV value, passwords or any other identifiable piece of information which would latter enable the criminals to access your money. The application does not protect the system despite the fact that it claims so. Scans and infections that are continually presented are simulated to scare you. The only infection of the system might be Windows Advanced Toolkit, and it is the only infection which should be removed. To scare you that the system is infected the rogue displays notification presenting misleading information. Two examples are given below:
Software without a digital signature detected. Your system files are at risk. We strongly advise you to activate your protection.
Attempt to run a potentially dangerous script detected. Full system scan is highly recommended.
If you get such messages from Windows Advanced Toolkit, keep in mind that they do not present the truth.
To make you think that the system is filled with infections harmful to the system, Windows Advanced Toolkit messes up the processed of the system. For example, it disables certain executable files, which if launched, would detect the infection. As the rogue wants to remain in the system for as long as possible, it disables tools which help a user to find the infection and remove it from the system. Additionally, Windows Advanced Toolkit is difficult to remove, because it hides Registry Editor where considerable changes are made by the rogue. The malware also disables Internet connection and hides Task Manager, which shows what processes are running in the system. When these impairments come into one, a Windows user might start thinking that the only way to get rid of infections, which caused such impairments, is to activate Windows Advanced Toolkit which deletes threats. However, the truth is that you should not register the rogue and pay for its fake full version unless your money burns a hole in your pocket.
You should spend money on reliable security of the system but not on imaginary application. First, what you should do to protect the system is delete the infection. If Windows Advanced Toolkit is activated with this key 0W000-000B0-00T00-E0020, the removal of the rogue becomes easier, because Registry Editor, from which you have to remove registry entries created by the rogue, is restored as well as other applications. If you want to terminate the infection on your own, make sure that you remove Windows Advanced Toolkit completely, because even a single file of the rogue can renew the infection. For those of you who do not want to suffer consequences of incorrect removal should delete the rogue by using a legitimate antispyware tool. A removal tool fully removes the infection and protects the system.
In non-techie terms:
