Do you know what Windows Risk Minimizer is?
Windows Risk Minimizer is a malicious computer program that comes practically with the same package as its predecessors, including Windows Managing System, Windows Attacks Defender, Windows Firewall Constructor and many more. There are many rogues in this so-called Rogue.VirusDoctor family, because they pop up aevery single day, and as far as their exterior is concerned, Windows Risk Minimizer is an identical clone of its forerunners. Therefore, you can expect it to be as dangerous as the previous versions.
This rogue is distributed via fake online scanner or infected websites. Naturally, these are not the only means of distribution, but Windows Risk Minimizer usually finds its way into your system using the two aforementioned ways. Once the rogue gets in, it modifies the registry and then loads automatically with your system whenever you turn on your computer. Windows Risk Minimizer does not need to your permission or consent to install itself; therefore you have to be very careful while browsing the Internet, because you can never know what is hiding behind a link to unknown website.
Either way, if you do end up infected with Windows Risk Minimizer you must ignore the fake security notifications received from the rogue point blank. For example, the following messages are absolutely worthless because they are made up by none the other but Windows Risk Minimizer itself:
Keylogger activity detected. System information security is at risk.
It is recommended to activate protection and run a full system scan.
Warning! Identity theft attempt Detected
Hidden connection IP: 18.104.22.168
Target: Your passwords for sites
Firewall has blocked a program from accessing the Internet
C:\program files\internet explorer\iexplore.exe
is suspected to have infected your PC. This type of virus intercepts entered data and transmits them to a remote server.
Needless to say, that these messages are very annoying especially when you are trying to get rid of Windows Risk Minimizer. Not to mention that Windows Risk Minimizer blocks Windows Task Manager and Registry Editor in order to convince you that there is no other way to get your computer back to normal but to pay for the full version of the program. However, there is a way you need to make use of it:
Click the “Activate Ultimate Protection” button on the rogue’s interface and enter the code above to “register” Windows Risk Minimizer. Afterwards, if you are not sure how to perform the rogue removal on your own, get yourself a legitimate antimalware application that will erase Windows Risk Minimizer from your system at once.
In non-techie terms:
Windows Risk Minimizer is a fake antivirus program that enters your system with intention to steal your money. It damages your computer and blames other viruses for it. You have to invest in a powerful computer security and delete Windows Risk Minimizer before it is too late.
