Do you know what Windows Process Regulator is?
Windows Defence Centre, Windows Lowlevel Solution, Windows Error Correction – these are just a few names from the ever-growing family of rogue system optimizers, which now has another member to add to this great collection of rogues. Meet Windows Process Regulator. Just like its forerunners this rogue is a part of the Fake Microsoft Security Essentials scam, and it will trick you in no time, if you don’t take this infection seriously. Despite the fact that Windows Process Regulator promises to fix the errors in your computer, it is not able to do so, and you need to get rid of this infection as soon as possible.
This rogue has quite a few ways to enter your system. For example, it can come to your through a Trojan infection, when you are prompted to download a codec by a fake online video player. The “codec” you download is a Trojan, which then later initiates the download of Windows Process Regulator. When the infiltration in your system is processed in this way, it is hard to tell when it happens exactly. You will know that something is wrong when Windows Process Regulator starts a fake system scan.
Along with the “scan” you will be also spammed with fake security error messages, urging you to fix the errors in your computer. In order to do so, Windows Process Regulator will offer you to purchase the license which would allow you to activate the full version of the program. However, giving away your personal information and banking data will only leave you penniless, and your computer will still be infected by this rogue. Keep in mind that even if you pay for it, Windows Process Regulator does not disappear. Worse, it waits for another chance to launch its attack on you.
The feature common to all of the rogues of this family is that they all can effectively block your desktop. When you are infected, you are not able to access either your icons or your taskbar. To restore your desktop and then proceed with the termination of the rogue, please follow these instructions:
- Reboot your computer and wait for it to load. When you see Windows Process Regulator’s application on your screen, click the “OK” button.
- Now the rogue will initiate a fake system scan. When it is done and another notification appears, click the “OK” button again.
- Now click the red “X” at the right top of it to make the notification go away.
- It should vanish and you will have your desktop back.
Not only does Windows Process Regulator aim for your money. It also damages your computer. It blocks you from executing .exe files, slows down your internet connection and causes system to crash. All of it is done in order for the rogue to stay entrenched in your system for a longer period of time, so it could squeeze out more money from you. Don’t allow this rogue to achieve its goal, protect yourself by removing Windows Process Regulator immediately.
In non techie terms:
Windows Process Regulator is a fake system optimization tool which pretends to be a reliable security program, while in fact it is detrimental to your computer. Delete Windows Process Regulator before it damaged your system and left you penniless.
