Control Components is a rogue anti-spyware, which is guised as a helpful tool that one would think has been designed to assist us PC users, when in actuality, Control Components is a mere tool with which its designers are conning and duping us into parting with our hard earned cash-money!
In other words, Control Components pretends to be a computer security solution but is in fact a counterfeit utility trying to get you to take money out of your wallet.
Also referred to as ControlComponents, this particular malware hails from the same rogue family as Control Center, Privacy Center and Control Manager.
Control Components tends to infiltrate and contaminates a computer system via infectious Trojan files that are programmed to generate fake pop-up messages. Control Components is also capable of redirecting the user’s browser, to malicious websites affiliated with this rogue.
Control Components displays the following properties:
Important to bear in mind with all these type programs is that by clicking on the pop-up messages the user inadvertently triggers an online system scanner that `detects` a variety of threats the infiltrated system is supposedly a victim of... this is all fictitious!
These fictitious security alerts will claim that the computer system is infected with malware and that these security risks need to be handled as soon as is possible.
The malware will even so go so far as to claim that the only way to rid your PC of the influx of viruses on the system will be to purchase its `commercial` software. Control Components is thus marketed as a system protection utility.
However, you should be clear that while operating in your system, Control Components will only keep deceiving you, often labeling your legitimate files as corrupt ones, thus encouraging you to get rid of them. Another example of just how dangerous and dubious the presence of this application, Control Components, actually is!
Should you fall prey to this tactic and actually end up removing these critical system files, you will only succeed in ensuring your system performance remains on the decline and may lead to its disruption in the long run.
The basic goal of Control Components is to coerce as many dupable PC users as possible into purchasing their products. Remove Control Components and any affiliated malware as soon as possible.
