Windows Functionality Checker

Windows Functionality Checker is the newest addition to the highly active Rogue.VirusDoctor family, with such infamous clones as Windows Protection Master, Windows Performance Catalyst, Smart Security, etc. Like all of its predecessors, the rogue antispyware can be very dangerous to your personal data and can cause grave financial loss. Therefore, you need to remove Windows Functionality Checker from your PC as soon as possible. Here is a list of a few elements that will help you identify Windows Functionality Checker in your computer:

• The same interface as of its previous clones
• Windows Security Center imitation
• Computer’s slow-down
• Probable networking restriction
• Restricted access to Task Manager, Windows Registry, other Windows components
• Identical fake notifications (see examples)

Windows Media Player Resources
C:\Windows\system32\dllcache\wmploc.dll
C:\Windows\system32\dllcache\wmploc.dll is suspected to have infected your PC. This type of virus intercepts entered data and transmits them to a remote server.

Warning! Virus Detected
Threat detected: FTP Server
Infected file: C:\Windows\System32\dllcache\wmploc.dll

Windows Functionality Checker can install itself without permission, or can trick YOU into installing it yourself. Ultimately, there are many online paths for the malware to infect the system, so you have to be careful when browsing or opening files, sent by unfamiliar sources. Once installed, malware performs a bogus threat scan. This is when all the fake notifications, mentioned above, start coming up.

Windows Functionality Checker will also alert you with this bogus warning, imitating Windows Security:

Security Essentails
Advanced Security Center helps you manage your Windows security settings. To protect your computer, the three security essentials are On. If the settings are not On, follow our recommendations.

The rogue then reports that FireWall, Automatic updates and Antivirus Protection are set OFF, threatening you further with a non-existent system’s security. It even lists Server-Telnet, Trojan-Dropper, Trojan-Malifinder, Trojan-Proxy and other malware as fake threats active in your computer. Do not be alarmed, and do not trust numerous pop-ups and warnings, as they are all fake, and are there to trick you into believing that your computer does have a valid infection.

Windows Functionality Checker will recommend buying its full version antispyware program, but you need to ignore this too. If you buy the product, it will NOT protect your computer from real threats, on the contrary, it will collect your banking details! This information will allow hijackers to use your details and your assets in their convenience! So be careful how you handle this rogue, and we recommend you remove Windows Functionality Checker instantly. Using legitimate antispyware is the best solution in this case. It will not only help you resume to normal Windows running, but will protect you from other malware in the future. However, if you are experienced with Windows, you can remove the rogue manually. Just make sure you delete ALL infected files, so that the infection does not regenerate and make more damage.
