Do you know what Windows Secure Web Patch is?
If you do not want lose control over your PC’s system, do not install Windows Secure Web Patch, or if you have on the computer, delete it from the system. Windows Secure Web Patch is a counterfeit application which is an exact copy of Windows Privacy Counsel, Windows Custom Safety and other which belong to the same Rogue.VirusDoctor family. If you are interested in how this rogue, which looks like Windows application, can be deceptive, do not stop reading.
Windows Secure Web Patch is a clever plan of the cyber schemers behind it. Their primary goal is to make you believe that the computer’s system has caught many infections due to its poor security. You will receive notification saying that the system is infected and that the best way to deal with them is to remove them which is possible after the registration of the supposedly real full version of the malware. This is how the Windows Secure Web puts it:
Potential malware detected.
It is recommended to activate protection and perform a thorough system scan to remove the malware.
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.
As you can see, every notification titled “Error” summarizes that the full version is really necessary. If you activate Windows Secure Web Patch, you lose your money and, most importantly, your sensitive data, because the cyber criminals in the background of the rogue record every single piece of identifiable information you enter in the purchase form.
The activation of Windows Secure Web Patch will not help you to remove imaginary infections, which are created to scare you. Rootkit.Win32.KernelBot, Trojan-Downloader.Win32.Agent and others are presented after simulated scans. It might be hard to resist the urge to remove those infections, because the information presented by the malware is truly convincing.
As well as misleading information, malfunctions of the computer’s system might be difficult to ignore. Once Windows Secure Web Patch finds a home on your computer, you lose control of the system. The system is impaired by disabling certain executable files and Internet connection and by hiding Registry Editor, where new registry entries are created by the rogue. Task Manager, which shows processes of the system, is hidden, as well.
If you want to restore theses Windows tools as well as the Internet, you should activate the Windows Secure Web with the key which is already provided. Please, keep in mind that to get the activation key you should not make any payments or reveal your sensitive data to a third party, because the key is already given.
Once the key is entered in an appropriate field, the rogue starts running as though it was activated after acquiring the key through the purchase. Now, you can use Registry Editor to delete the rogue-related constituents which should not be present in the system. Those who want to have Windows Secure Web Patch removed immediately can use a powerful antispyware tool. An automatically deleted infection will not reappear in the system because no element which can revive infections will be left in the system.
In non-techie terms:
Windows Secure Web Patch is a fraudulent application which makes you think that it is an antivirus application. Do not trust this bogus security tool, because the main goal of this malware is to get your money by offering you its imaginary full version. In case of infection, delete the malware and use a security tool to safeguard the system.
