Do you know what Windows Privacy Extension is?
Such rogue antispywares as Windows Privacy Extension and its predecessor clones Windows Custom Management or Windows Premium Console, are controlled by well organized cyber criminals, who will not have much trouble slithering the bogus security application into any Windows system with poor or inexistent malware detection and removal software. Once inside a personal computer, this rogue will immediately present a fictitious computer scanner, which will inform you with made-up infections, and which visually will resemble legitimate Windows system’s application. The name of the infection will also lead you into thinking that the bogus application is truly legitimate and can help you detect and remove Windows Privacy Extension detected computer infections.
Malicious application’s tricks do not stop there, and you should be extremely wary of all Task Bar notifications, which will warn you about high-risk malware activity, and which will keep recommending you to purchase Windows Privacy Extension’s full version malware removal application. Of course, these pop-ups alerts are fictitious and are controlled by schemers, rather than Windows security agents. Below you can see examples of such fictitious notifications:
Keylogger activity detected. System information security is at risk.
It is recommended to activate protection and run a full system scan.
Potential malware detected.
It is recommended to activate protection and perform a thorough system scan to remove the malware.

If these cunning tricks do not fool you and you try to delete Windows Privacy Extension, you will find yourself incapable to proceed, because access to Task Manager and Registry Editor will be removed, Internet connection will be blocked, and running of most executables will be disabled. This will aggravate both manual and automatic removal operations, which is why we recommend using a registration key, which would create an illusion that you have purchased the useless rogue’s full version, without you spending $79.95 on the fictitious lifetime security support, and all annoying symptoms would get removed.
