Windows Optimal Solution
Despite the best efforts of the online security industry to adequately warn their customers about the dangers associated with allowing rogue security tools to run wild on their systems many consumers continue to fall victim to threats such as Windows Optimal Solution. This rogue in particular originates from a long and illustrious family of rogue antispyware applications the likes of which include Windows Safety Protection, Windows Utility Tool, Windows Security & Control and Windows System Optimizator. These disturbing facts along completely discredit Windows Optimal Solution as a helpful and powerful security tool. What’s more is the fact that Windows Optimal Solution was never designed to offer any type of benefit or convenience for a PC system, but only devastation and destruction.
Windows Optimal Solution’s infiltration into the system is near impossible to detect. This alone makes it a far more dangerous rogue than most other and it is therefore imperative to destroy Windows Optimal Solution upon detection. It makes use of Trojan horse infections to carry and root its infection into host PCs, and users are warned to stay away from online portals known to actively participate in Windows Optimal Solution’s online marketing campaign. These portals include bogus online malware scanners and seditious browser hijackers. These browser hijackers make use of disturbing and sly drive-by download techniques which delivers the Windows Optimal Solution Trojan into a PC simply by having the user visit its compromised landing page once.
As mentioned earlier, the user will be unaware of Windows Optimal Solution’s presence on his system. Windows Optimal Solution will first reveal its presence when it spams the user with various fake security messages. These false notifications are completely without merit and should not enjoy any attention from the PC owner. Its sole purpose is to cause panic in the user and to get him to believe his system is being attacked. Windows Optimal Solution will then offer to get rid of the false threats and protect the system from future attacks but only once the user pays for its fake software. Some of the false alerts to be on the lookout for include the following:
Microsoft Security Essentials Alert
Threat prevention solution found
System Security Warning
System component corrupted!
It goes without saying that these false security alerts are not to be trusted, and that all correspondence received from Windows Optimal Solution should be treated as extremely suspicious.
Users who did not get rid of Windows Optimal Solution in time complained about being unable to connect to the Internet, as well as being denied access to their Desktops. Disturbing and utterly frustrating as these symptoms are, there is a way to restore access to the Desktop and bring back some semblance of order to your PC system. Follow these instructions to reestablish your Internet connection and regain access to your Desktop:
1. Reboot your system. You will find the Windows Optimal Solution startup screen blocking access to your Desktop. Click the “OK” button to make it go away. The malware will start a fake system scan.
Do not think that only by following the above instructions you have now successfully eliminated the threat. In order to assume complete control back of your PC it is necessary to completely destroy Windows Care Tool. The best way to permanently erase Windows Care Tool is by making use of a genuine security tool which will also offer adequate protection against future attacks and threats.
