Windows Optimization & Security

With all the sophistication which goes into the design and marketing of rogue security products, it is no wonder why more and more consumers are falling victim to harmful parasites such as Windows Optimization & Security. This parasitic rogue was not designed to be of any benefit to a computer system, and has only one goal; to rip consumers off. Windows Optimization & Security will stop at nothing to successfully complete this goal, even if that means causing permanent and irreversible damage to its victims’ systems.

Windows Optimization & Security enters the system with the help of mutinous Trojan horse infections. These Trojans are cleverly distributed with the help of various sneaky elements, including fake online malware scanners and treacherous browser hijackers. These browser hijacking websites forcefully redirects users’ browsing and search sessions to their websites, and once the user lands on the homepage the site will exploit all his system and browser vulnerabilities to successfully root the Windows Optimization & Security Trojan into the system. This is all done surreptitiously and without even the knowledge of the user.

Once the Windows Optimization & Security infection roots itself in the system, it will reveal itself to the user through making use of various fake security alerts. These fake pop up messages will try and convince the user that his system has been compromised. This is done in an effort to panic the user, as well as place Windows Optimization & Security in an authoritative light. Do not fall for any of the following fake Windows Optimization & Security security alerts.

"Take note of the poor spelling and erroneous grammatical errors contained in the fake security notifications. This should already alert the user to the suspect nature of Windows Optimization & Security, and lead him to question the validity of these fake alerts."

"Windows Optimization & Security often refers to Unknown Win32/Trojan and Trojan.Horse.Win32.PAV.64.a in its fake security alerts. It is worth noting that these fabricated Trojans do not exist in reality but that it is all part of Windows Optimization & Security’s attack on the system. "

At the end of the day, Windows Optimization & Security has no ability to detect, quarantine or remove threats from a system, as it is a parasite in itself. The only way you will be able to protect your PC against the inevitable permanent damage this insidious rogue will cause will be to obliterate Windows Optimization & Security from the system for good. Do this by investing in a fully functional and updated security tool which will not only detect and erase Windows Optimization & Security from the system, but also provide future protection against similar rogues.
