Do you know what Windows Examination Utility is?
A lot have been written about the now popular and highly despised fake Microsoft Security Essentials scam – and its latest addition is now also quickly gaining in notoriety. Windows Examination Utility finds its roots in the same family of rogues as Windows Necessary Firewall and Windows Custom Settings. Although it makes use of the Windows brand in its name and graphical user interfaces, Windows Examination Utility is by no means associated or endorsed by Microsoft Windows.
The rogue makes use of established forms of infection, using bogus online malware scanners and rubbish browser hijackers to root its infection into its victims’ PCs. These and other infection tactics all form part of Windows Examination Utility’s online marketing campaign.
Windows Examination Utility will launch each time the user logs on to Windows, and will spam the user with fake system scans and fake security alerts in the form of pop ups. This is all part of the rogue’s attack on the system, and will only stop once the user decides to get rid of Windows Examination Utility for good. It will also report on fake infection supposedly crippling the system, such as Trojan.Horse.Win21.PAV.64.a and Unknown Win32/Trojan.
Users may find it difficult to identify and delete Windows Examination Utility without the help of a powerful security tool due to its stealth infiltration. It will cause severe erratic system behavior and poor system performance, and users should waste no time to erase Windows Examination Utility. This can best and safest be achieved by making use of a genuine security tool which will not only get rid of Windows Examination Utility but also protect against similar attacks in future.
In non techie terms:
Windows Examination Utility is a bogus security tool only out to rip you off. Take back control of what is rightfully yours, and destroy Windows Examination Utility immediately.
