Malware researchers have analyzed Windows AntiVirus Booster to learn how it can spread and enter your personal computer. Tens if not hundreds of different rogue’s clones have been discovered. Windows Antivirus Tool, Windows AntiBreach Helper and Windows AntiBreach Suite are the latest rogues in the Rogue.VirusDoctor family, also known as FakeVimes. These clandestine rogues may be inactive when Windows AntiVirus Booster takes over your personal computer; however, there is no doubt that new versions could be released soon enough. This is the main reason why after the removal of the rogue you need to safeguard the operating system against other malicious threats which are proliferated using various scams and tricks. For example, the fictitious malware remover can be offered to you via a fictitious online scanner pushing you to install an unfamiliar product which supposedly can help you delete threats and keep the system protected thereafter.

Unfortunately, the clandestine threat can block executable files making it impossible to launch Registry Editor, Task Manager or the web browsers and initiate rogue’s removal.

We do not recommend manual removal to those computer users who do not have extensive malware removal experience. In order to install automatic malware removal software you need to disable the existing symptoms. You can do this by activating the full version of the malicious rogue; however, instead of paying the requested fee all you have to do is activate a special registration key (e.g., 0W000-000B0-00T00-E0021).
