Do you know what Windows Antivirus Tool is?
Windows Antivirus Tool is a malicious infection which can display fictitious pop-ups, block executable files, deny access to the Internet browsers, create unauthorized connections, and slow down the entire system. The threat can paralyze your personal computer in order to create an illusion that dangerous Trojans, worms, keyloggers and other infections have corrupted the PC. If you fall for this scam, you will be pushed into purchasing the full version tool which may cost up to $100. Whether you find this sum big or small, you need to delete Windows Antivirus Tool instead of making any payments related to it. This program may seem like a legitimate anti-spyware which could delete existing computer infections; however, in reality it is completely useless.
The malicious rogue uses svc-ydpr.exe to corrupt your personal computer. This malicious executable can modify the Windows Registry creating a bunch of problems. Needless to say, it is most irritating that the infection can block access to the web, which means that you will not be able to download automatic malware detection and removal tools which could delete Windows Antivirus Tool. Even if you download the installer onto a separate computer, you might have trouble installing it because the rogue can block executable files. As you may know already, the malicious rogue’s clones, including Windows Antivirus Suite and Windows AntiBreach Helper, are just as clandestine and disruptive.
