Windows Troublemakers Agent
There is no end to the cyber criminal attempts to extort financial gain from unsuspecting computer users. Windows Troublemakers Agent is yet another member of the huge Fake Microsoft Security Essentials fraud, which encompasses such notorious pests as Windows Defence Center, Windows Error Correction, Windows Optimal Tool and many more. These rogue system optimization applications share similar design, copying the symbols and color schemes from genuine security products with intention to trick the innocent users.
Windows Troublemakers Agent has the ability to stealthily enter your system, because you can’t really pinpoint the exact moment when it slithers inside. You might actually be infected already. If you want to check your computer for the Windows Troublemakers Agent infection, feel free the use the suggested malware scanner.
This rogue is very dangerous, because it uses a set of nasty methods to achieve its goal. Windows Troublemakers can very effectively block your desktop access. After the installation you might see that you can access neither your icons, nor your taskbar. Don’t panic, there is a way to restore your desktop access. Simply follow these instructions:
1. Reboot the computer. When it’s on again, you will see the rogue’s application on the screen. Click “OK” to make it disappear. The rogue will start a fake system scan.
Blocking the desktop is just one of the many horrendous things that Windows Troublemakers can do. This rogue usually enters your system via Trojan infection and then roots in your computer without your knowledge, until eventually it begins its attack against you and your computer. Windows Troublemakers Agent will initiate a fake system scan which will “find” multiple computer security threats in your system, and the rogue will inform you about it with these kinds of messages:
Microsoft Security Essentials Alert
Threat prevention solution found
System Security Warning
System component corrupted!
This may be caused by severe malware infections.
Needless to say, that you should by no means trust these notifications. They are obviously fake, and the poor syntax and spelling of these messages only support this claim. And nothing good can come from a fake program. Windows Troublemakers Agent only bombards you with these messages, so you would be convinced to buy the license for the full version of the program. If you do so, consider your money as good as gone forever. Not to mention that this rogue also significantly slows down your computer performance which eventually can results in a total system crash. Don’t hesitate any longer and terminate Windows Troublemakers Agent from your computer.
