Do you know what Windows Scan is?
Despite the best efforts of the online security industry, many consumers still fall victim to the incendiary lies sold by rogue defragmenters such as Windows Scan. This rogue in particular hails from the same destructive family of rogue defragmenters as Defragmenter. It is for this reason, among many others that users are urged to steer well clear of this harmful threat and to annihilate Windows Scan from their PCs as soon as possible.
Windows Scan makes use of established forms of infection which includes making use of browser hijackers. The seditious browser hijackers Windows Scan employs hijacks users browsing and search sessions by forcefully redirecting them to these compromised sites. Once the user lands on the landing page his system and browser vulnerabilities will be exploited in order for Windows Scan to gain access to the system.
The user will not be aware of Windows Scan’s infiltration or infection until the rogue reveals itself through barraging the PC owner with various fake security notifications. These fake alerts were designed to panic the user into thinking his system is compromised, and should be ignored. Do not pay any attention to the following fake security alerts distributed by Windows Scan:
Damaged hard drive clusters detected. Private data is at risk.
Hard Drive not found. Missing hard drive.
RAM memory usage is critically high. RAM memory failure.
Some users complained about being unable to launch any programs on the system, as well as having blocked Internet connections. Windows Scan does this in an attempt to prevent the user from running or downloading a program which will be able to detect and remove Windows Scan from the system. If you want to “unlock” Windows Scan on the system and restore the Internet connection, enter the following security key:
Do not allow Windows Scan to take control of your PC. There is only one way to restore the security of your PC and to take back control of what is rightfully yours; erase Windows Scan from your PC immediately. Do not waste another moment before erasing Windows Scan for good.
In non techie terms:
Do not trust Windows Scan as it is a fake system optimizer. Windows Scan will only scam you out of your money and not live up to its promises. Delete Windows Scan from your PC immediately.
