Privacy Corrector

Do not fall for any of Privacy Corrector’s aggressive marketing techniques. This seemingly legitimate looking security tool is actually a rogue antispyware application only emulating the workings of a real security application. It makes use of many of the same blackmail and extortion techniques as found with all other rogueware, and will stop at nothing to accomplish its goals.

Making use of fake security notifications, Privacy Corrector will inform the user that his system is infected with various serious infections and parasites. This is not to be trusted, as Privacy Corrector has been known to try and scare its victims and panic them as part of its attack. Privacy Corrector will then inform the user that in order to get rid of these infections, he will need to pay for the full version of Privacy Corrector, which in reality does not exist.

Privacy Corrector is unable to live up to any of its promises, and only spells bad news for any infected PC. Users are thus strongly advised to erase Privacy Corrector off their systems as a matter of urgency. This can easily be accomplished with the removal power of a powerful security tool. Always keep your security software updated with the latest security definitions in an effort to be able to effectively obliterate Privacy Corrector and similar threats.
