Do you know what Windows Steady Work is?
Windows Steady Work is a dangerous program which masquerades as a legitimate security application, but it comes from a completely different field. This program is a rogue antispyware application and it is a direct clone of Windows Stability Alarm, Windows Troubles Remover, Windows Necessary Firewall and the like. All these rogues belong to the Fake Microsoft Security Essentials scam and they have been terrorizing innocent computer users worldwide for some time now.
This rogue has more than one way to enter your system, but most often it crawls over through Trojan infection. This infection does not need your consent to settle down in your computer. In fact, you might be infected already and don’t even have a clue about it. That is why it is essential to have your antivirus program up to date, and perform regular scans of your system. Perhaps then you wouldn’t receive this Windows Steady Work prompt saying that Microsoft Security Essentials (FAKE) detected an unknown Trojan infection and you need to click on the message to find out the details about this infection.
If you do so, you will initiate a quick scan of the computer which will state that one certain file is infected with Trojan.Horse.Win32.Pav.64.a. According to the messages that you receive the next step includes downloading and installing Windows Steady Work. If you do so, the program will load automatically and perform a fake system scan. It will give a low system security rating and “find” a lot of errors which it will then urge you to fix. However, if you click the “Fix Errors” button Windows Steady Work will announce that you are using the Trial Version of the program and you need to buy the full version if you want to get rid of those problems.
However, you mustn’t “update” the software for the full system cleanup. If you fill in the blanks in Windows Steady Work’s purchase page, you will lose a lot more than the amount indicated on the price tag. With your credit card information leaked the cyber criminals will be able to tap into your bank account anytime and you will be ripped off before you know it. Prevent this from happening by deleting Windows Steady Work right now. If manual removal is too hard for you, acquire a reliable antimalware tool, which will remove the rogue automatically for you.
In non-techie terms:
Windows Steady Work is a rogue antispyware application which looks like an antivirus program, but in fact it is a dangerous computer threat. It slows down your system and wants to steal your money, so you need to remove Windows Steady Work from your computer as soon as you can.
