User Account Control
User Account Control is the latest rogue anti-spyware application, which was designed to attempt to dupe unsuspecting PC users into believing their dubious tactics to be true, and ultimately persuade them into purchasing the full version of this nefarious application.
User Account Control usually spreads by using browser hijackers to redirect the user to websites hosting fake online system scans and thus tricking him into downloading the program.
As is typical of rogue anti-spyware software like this, User Account Control doesn’t deviate much from the typical and most widely practiced tactics of PC parasite infiltration User Account Control tends to also make use of affiliated backdoor Trojan infections, usually Trojan Vundo or Zlob, in order to ensure hidden penetration into the targeted machine is successful.
Once inside the designated system, User Account Control will obscurely create hundreds of fake malware entities in the infiltrated system. Once this is done, User Account Control will then “detect” these dummy files and ensure the unsuspecting user, you, think it’s high time you removed all the reported malware.
User Account Control’s malicious trialware usually runs each time you log onto Windows and will display its fake system scanner that claims to find a variety of corrupted dangerous files.
As a well-practiced tactic, User Account Control will have you believe that in order to protect your Operating System against these “detections”, you will be prompted to install User Account Control’s full commercial version which demands payment.
User Account Control has the following properties:
- Changes browser settings
If you do install User Account Control’s licensed software, you will soon realize that it’s not only worthless in terms of malware removal, but it will compromise any computer systems’ performance and will eventually slow down the computer considerably.
One should remove the User Account Control rogue anti-spyware application as soon as it has been detected.
