Do you know what Windows Troubles Solver is?
Although seemingly innocuous and user friendly, users are urged to steer well clear of Windows Troubles Solver. This rogue antispyware application is the newest addition to the illustrious and heavily despised fake Microsoft Security Essentials scam, and also finds its roots in the same family of reviled rogues as Windows Activity Inspector, Windows Tweaking Utility and Windows Firewall Unit.
This Windows Troubles Solver will use any means at its disposal to surreptitiously infiltrate its victims’ PCs. Tactics used include seditious browser hijackers which forcefully redirect users to compromised landing pages and bogus online malware scanners. In recent times it’s also been reported that Windows Troubles Solver has incorporated flash online ads to its online marketing campaign.
This rogue will do everything in its power to come across as legitimate, even using genuine Windows icons in its GUIs, including the well-known Windows orb. Once Windows Troubles Solver roots itself securely in the system it will initiate a fake system scan each time Windows runs, by editing registry entries. This fake scan will report on Computer Safety, Network Security and Hard Disk Optimization, among other aspects of system operation, and will inform the user that his system is under severe attack. Of course no correspondence received from Windows Troubles Solver should be trusted.
Symptoms associated with Windows Troubles Solver include the inability to connect to the Internet, users not being able to launch any applications on the infected system as well as increased erratic system behavior. Users also reported extremely poor system performance due to Windows Troubles Solver’s high consumption of valuable system resources.
When all is said and done users will only be able to regain control of their PCs if they remove Windows Troubles Solver immediately. This can be safest achieved by making use of a genuine security tool which will also provide adequate protection against similar future infections.
In non techie terms:
Windows Troubles Solver is a bogus and harmful security tool. Protect your PC and eliminate Windows Troubles Solver at the earliest possibility.
