Do you know what Windows Error Correction is?
With all the investment going into the development of rogue defragmenter tools, it has become increasingly difficult to spot the genuine applications from rogue optimization tools like Windows Error Correction. This Windows Error Correction in particular follows a long line of roguewares who have collectively conned and ripped off countless consumers with their sophisticated online scam. Some of these include Windows Debug System, Windows Efficiency Manager, Windows Care Tool and Windows Health Center, all of which are worthless pieces of software.
Windows Error Correction enters the system under surreptitious circumstances, and will further hide its presence from the attentions of the user until such time that it is ready to launch its attack on the system. Windows Error Correction roots its infection in the system through seditious Trojans which forcefully enter the system with the help of sneaky browser hijackers and bundled Internet downloads.
The first inclination the user will have as to Windows Error Correction’s presence on the system will come from the many spam fake security alerts generated by Windows Error Correction. These false alerts are designed to cause panic in the user, and to make him part with his money for this useless software. Some of the fake alerts to be on the lookout for include the following:
“Microsoft Security Essentials Alert
Potential Threat Details
Microsoft Security Essentials detected potential threats that might compromise your private or damage your computer. Your access to these items may be suspended until you take an action. Click 'show details' to learn more.”
“System component corrupted!
System reboot error has occurred due to lsass.exe system process failure.
This may be caused by severe malware infections.
Automatic restore of lsass.exe backup copy completed.
The correct system performance can not be resumed without eliminating the cause of lsass.exe corruption.”
Users who were unable to get rid of Windows Error Correction in time complained about various disturbing symptoms, including disabled desktop. Follow these instructions to securely restore desktop:
- Reboot your system. You will find the Windows Error Correction startup screen blocking access to your Desktop. Click the “OK” button to make it go away. The malware will start a fake system scan.
- Wait until the scan is done. Once the scan is finished you will see another fake security notice. Click “OK” one more time.
- Make the notification go away by clicking on the red “X” at the right top of it.
- It should now disappear and you will be able to access your desktop again.
This should allow you access to the Internet again. Do not think that by having merely completed the above steps that you have successfully neutralized the threat, as you still need to obliterate Windows Error Correction from the system in order to restore its security and privacy.
In non techie terms:
Windows Error Correction is a fake security tool out to only rip you off and seriously damage your system. Destroy Windows Error Correction while there is still time, and take back what is rightfully yours.
