Do you know what Windows Privacy Module is?
Once you find Windows Privacy Module on your compute, do not hesitate to remove it. This software is a bogus security application which is a clone of Windows PC Aid, Windows Safety Wizard and other harmful applications which compose Rogue.VirusDoctor family. You should not trust Windows Privacy Module, because even if it looks like a legitimate security application and displays convincing information, it does not protect the system. It only waits you to give up and expose such banking details as bank account and credit card numbers, passwords or any identifiable information which could help to steal your money. The crook that made this application employed many tactics to scare Windows users into believing that the system is vulnerable to various infections.
One of the scare tactics used by the rogue is simulated functions which are typical of genuine security tools. For example, like a real security application, Windows Privacy Module supposedly investigates the system and detects “threats”. You may find that your system is “infected” with P2P-Worm.Win32 or Backdoor.Win32.Rbot. These infections are real, and, for example, Backdoor.Win32.Rbot is a Trojan which allows criminals to get access to be the system. This and other infections presented by the rogue do not exist on your computer; therefore, do not struggle to find and remove the infections discussed, because you might delete valid components of the system which are necessary to run the system smoothly.
Additionally, you should be aware of bogus notifications notification presented by the rogue. Find how Windows Privacy Module might lure you into believing that you are at risk:
Warning! Virus Detected
Threat detected: FTP Server
Keylogger activity detected. System information security is at risk. It is recommended to activate protection and run a full system scan.
Software without a digital signature detected. Your system files are at risk. We strongly advise you to activate your protection.
You might start thinking that you have lost control of the computer when the rogue weakens the performance of Windows applications. Windows Privacy Module hides Registry Editor, Task Manager and does not allow you to launch certain executable files. Moreover, the rogue limits access to the Internet; in other words, it disables the access and you loss a chance to download antispyware to remove this infection. However, these impairments of the system can be fixed, because the white hat hackers provide user with activation key which, after the activation of Windows Privacy Module, renews the availability of the tools.

The key is not empowered to remove supposedly detected threats. You have to delete Windows Privacy Module after the activation, because the rogue remains in the system. Your task is to eliminate all the components of the rogue such as files, malicious registry entries and processes. All of these have to be deleted flawlessly to ensure that the infection will not be renewed. For those you do not want to “demonstrate” their abilities to delete infections, automatic removal is an option. In this case, you have to use an antimalware tool. First, check if the application is certified, and if it is, use it to remove the rogue. Windows Privacy Module will be deleted for you, and no damage will be caused to the system.
In non-techie terms:
Windows Privacy Module is a cunning application waiting for you to expose your sensitive data. This malware pretends to be a security tool and tries to make you buy its imaginary full version. If you find Windows Privacy Module on your computer, delete it without delay.
