Windows Power Expansion
The Fake Microsoft Security Essentials scam is an ever-growing family of rogue system optimization application. The newest addition to the group is Windows Power Expansion. Despite the pompous title of the software application, it is a malicious threat, which poses as a good security program. Windows Power Expansion certainly has an attractive interface, but that is because it is supposed to trick a computer user into believing that this program can deal with computer errors.
Windows Power Expansion is a rogue which can easily get into your computer without your knowledge. Therefore you should take infection prevention measures seriously and always check for any spyware files on your computer. Feel free to download the suggested malware scanner, to see if you have been infected already.
This rogue has the same feature which is common to all of its predecessors. Windows Power Expansion can block your desktop access, so you would not be able to launch your internet browser and find a way to get rid of this parasite. In order to get your desktop back, please follow these instructions:
1. Reboot your computer and wait for it to load until Windows Power Expansion’s application appears on your screen. Click the “OK” button to make it disappear.
If you are wondering how Windows Power Expansion got into your computer, then this rogue is usually distributed through fake online scanner websites. You can be redirected to the site hosting a download file for the rogue when you click on a flashing advertisement or on any other suspicious link. The link to fake scanner site can be found even in a site that you know. This suggests that you should refrain from clicking on anything and anywhere that pops up in your screen unexpectedly.
Since Windows Power Expansion pretends to be a reliable security program, when it entrenches in your computer, it suggests you to do a full system scan, in order to optimize the PC performance and remove the detected errors. Naturally, Windows Power Expansion does not have the ability to detect any errors in your system, and all of these messages displayed by the rogue should be ignored:
