Windows Stability Alarm

There are many threats facing healthy PCs these days, and the only way to protect your PC from rogue security applications such as Windows Stability Alarm and the threats they pose is to protect your PC with a genuine security tool.

It also forms part of the now infamous fake Microsoft Security Essentials scam.

Windows Stability Alarm will enter the system under suspicious circumstances. It will not alert the user to its presence, and will remain hidden until such time that it is ready to start its attack against the PC. This will happen by the rogue initiating a fake system scan, which will invariably end up informing the user of fake security threats as being present on the system. Windows Stability Alarm is delivered into the system in a variety of ways, most commonly through bogus online malwares scanners, and seditious browser hijackers.

As a further attack on the system, this rogue will spam the user with numerous fake security threats in the form of pop up messages. These will warn the user of the presence of well-known bogus threats such as Unknown Win21/Trojan and Backdoor.Win32.Rbot. Most of the fake alerts will contain calls to action, that when acted upon will facilitate Windows Stability Alarm in its goal to rip the consumer off. Some of the most popular fake alerts read as follows:

System Security Warning
Attempt to modify register key entries is detected. Register entries analysis is recommended.

Warning!
Location: c:\windows\system32\taskmgr.exe
Viruses: Backdoor.Win32.Rbot

Other symptoms associated with this rogue include the user losing his ability to connect to the Internet, as well as being unable to launch any type of executable on the system. This is always done in an effort to keep the user from running or downloading an application which may be able to get rid of Windows Stability Alarm. Users also reported poor system performance, increased erratic system behavior and the random generating and deleting of Desktop items.

At the end of the day you will only be able to take back what is rightfully yours if you destroy Windows Stability Alarm immediately. This can safest be achieved by making use of a properly functioning security tool.
