Privacy Components

Privacy Components is a new rogue anti-spyware that tries to trick unsuspecting victims into spending their money on its dangerous commercial version. Privacy Components conforms to the “traditional” tactics natural to fake anti-spyware applications in its being devious, deceptive and in the long run very hazardous.

Privacy Components makes it inside new systems owing to the backdoor Trojan that facilitates hidden installation of its trialware. One more way for Privacy Components to infiltrate is through its website as PrivacyComponents.net. Privacy Components jolts unsuspecting victims into thinking their computer systems are infected with dangerous malware. This undertaking is accomplished through the use of fabricated positives claiming the computer system is under malware threat.

The fake scanners with pre-determined results are also among the tools this rogue anti-spyware uses for misinforming people. The scans may also label some of your normal files as infected thus encouraging you to delete them, which is not necessary because these may turn out to be important system files. Eventually, victims are expected to purchase Privacy Components utility, which will only aggravate the situation and will surely fail to resolve any of your malware problems.
