Windows User Satellite

It is amazing how persistent cyber criminals are in trying to achieve financial gain through genuine swindle. Windows User Satellite is just another rogue system optimization application out there, devised to deceive gullible users in spending their hard earned money on a completely useless product. This malware is a clone of other nasty rogues such as Windows Problems Solution, Windows Safety Protection and Windows Software Guard. Just like its predecessors Windows User Satellite poses as a trustworthy security tool, but it only impairs your computer’s safety.

There are quite a few ways for Windows User Satellite to enter your system. Normally your computer’s vulnerabilities are exploited through Trojan horse infection, which then later allows the rogue to settle into your system. What is worse, it is really hard to know when exactly this malware roots in your computer because the file names of this application are generated at random.

You are definitely infected if you receive endless stream of fake security alert notifications. Windows User Satellite will bombard you with these messages into order to make you anxious about your computer security, because it is a lot easier to persuade you to buy the fake product when you’re in an unstable state of mind. Especially as Windows User Satellite is offering you seemingly a reliable security application which would make all the troubles go away. Unfortunately, the only thing which will go away, if you trust any of this, is your money. So don’t keep this rogue in your computer any longer. Delete Windows User Satellite before you go down too deep.

Windows User Satellite is also notorious for one nasty symptom, which is common to all of this clone family. It disallows full control of your desktop, blocking the access to your icons and your taskbar. Even though it might look terrible, there is a way to restore your desktop’s primary functions. Just follow these instructions:

1. Once you have rebooted your computer, you will be greeted by the rogue application. The notification will disappear if you click the “OK” button. Windows User Satellite will now start a fake system scan.
2. When the scan is done you will see another fake security notification. Click the “OK” button once more.
3. Now you can close the application. Click on the red “X” at the right top of it.
4. The application will now disappear and your desktop will go back to normal.

However, keep in mind that you still have Windows User Satellite in your computer. If you do nothing about it, it will continue to assault you with these kinds of messages:
