Windows Health Center
It’s no secret that unscrupulous cyber criminals pervert the true purpose of security products for their own devious gain, as in the case of Windows Health Center. What separates Windows Health Center from the crowed is its dogged determination to extort money out of the consumer at any cost necessary. Windows Health Center, which hails from similar rogues Windows System Optimizator and Windows Shield Center is known for the vicious symptoms which follow this rogue antispyware, and will not ease up until it achieves its devious goals.
Windows Health Center’s infiltration of the system is done in an extremely low key manner, so as to avoid detection by the PC owner. The user will remain oblivious to the presence of Windows Health Center on his system until such a time that Windows Health Center deigns to reveal itself. This will usually happen through the use of various fake security messages which will report on bogus threats being present on the PC. The first indication that the PC owner is dealing with a suspect application should be the fact that Windows Health Center enters the system without authority and without the say so of the PC owner. It will also illicit and unwanted system security scan which the user does not initiate. Furthermore, the Windows Health Center bogus security alerts are fraught with spelling and grammatical mistakes, which should already speak to the legitimacy of Windows Health Center as a genuine security tool.
Symptoms which follow a Windows Health Center infection include the user being unable to access his Desktop. The user will also soon find that he is unable to run any application on his system, and increased system erratic behavior and poor system performance will soon render the system utterly useless. There does seem to be a way how you can circumvent most of Windows Health Center’s crippling symptoms. Read on to find out how to restore the access to your Desktop:
1. When presented with the startup screen, press the OK button to start the Windows Health Center scan on the system.
2. While the scan is running, go the bottom left corner screen where you will notice a website linking to a legitimate Microsoft website (http://www.microsoft.com/protect).
3. Click on this link to be redirected to a bogus website informing users about online safety and privacy education. This website is a fake domain, and you should close it immediately by clicking on the red X at the top right of the screen.
4. You should now be able to also close the Windows Health Center startup screen and regain access to your Desktop
Now although you will be able to access your Desktop after following these instructions, the threat to your system has by no means been alleviated. In order to protect your PC and restore its inherent security features you still need to destroy Windows Health Center. While attempting to run an application on the system you might still come across fake security alerts trying to deny you access. Some of these fake notifications will read as follows:
"Warning! Database updated failed!
"The application taskmgr.exe was launched successfully but, it was forced to shut down due to security reasons.
Quite obviously none of these fake alerts can be trusted. Pointing to the various spelling and grammatical discrepancies should be enough to justify taking action to obliterate Windows Health Center from the PC for good.
PC owners who value the safety and health of their systems honestly cannot afford to allow Windows Health Center to run wild on their PCs any longer than it already has. In order to secure the future health of your PC, erase Windows Health Center without delay. The best way to go about doing this will be to employ the removal power of a genuine security tool which will not only eradicate Windows Health Center but also protect against future attacks.
