Windows Personal Detective

Attacking more and more Windows users, Windows Personal Detective works on the same basis as other Rogue.VirusDoctor family rogues Windows Trojans Inspector, Windows Attacks Defender, Windows Threats Destroyer, etc. The fake antispyware tool invades a PC, tricks its user and makes a quick profit. In reality, the malicious application has no protection value and is not worth any money; therefore, removing Windows Personal Detective is the only way to guard yourself and your system from any sinister intentions.

There are a few different ways that Windows Personal Detective can use to attack your system. It could be lurking for you in spam emails, online advertisements, etc. If you open one of the infection’s locations, you will be introduced to a bogus online scanner, which will inform you of your system’s contagion. This fearful report will lure you into clicking on the report, which will initiate Windows Personal Detective’s setup, and once you download and run it on your system, the rogue will immediately start its deceptive scheme. Instantly, you will lose control of essential Windows tools (Registry Editor and Task Manger), and most executable files will be blocked from running.

Windows Personal Detective is a well-designed fake tool, as it does not look very different from other legitimate products alike. It mimics Windows Security Center and gives out information about disabled security settings and other system faults. Do not let the interface fool you, and ignore all alerts, warning messages and pop-ups sent your way. Bellow, you can see a few examples.
