Windows Express Help

If you value your system security you have to stay as far as possible from Windows Express Help. It is a rogue system optimization application, which covets your money. This rogue is but a small fragment of the huge Fake Microsoft Security Essentials scheme. The cyber criminals who are behind this fraud want to become rich by deceiving innocent computer users. They’ve been trying rather hard considering Windows Express Help is just one of the many malware application clones. The others include Windows Wise Protection, Windows Care Tool and Windows Problems Solution.

There is more than one way to get infected by Windows Express Help. The most common infection pathway is via a Trojan horse. Your system gets contaminated unawares, because a Trojan enters your computer usually under the pretence of being a useful program, but in reality it only opens the door to your system for various destructive threats. It is possible to download Windows Express Help after a visit to a browser hijacker page, or a site which hosts a fake online scanner. In the case of the fake malware scanner, it obviously performs a fabricated scan and then floods you with notifications that you have infected and you really need to acquire Windows Express Help. If you want to be sure whether you have caught this rogue or not, you are always welcome to download the Spyware scanner and check for yourself.

Just like its forerunners Windows Express Help manifests itself right when it gets installed into your system. This rogue is notorious for denying you the access to your desktop. After the installation it is virtually impossible to perform any usual actions with your computer, because your desktop is blocked and you can see only the Windows Express Help application. Yet, keep your spirits up, because you can restore your desktop if you follow these instructions:

1. After the reboot there’s a Windows Express Help application on your screen. Click the “OK” button and it will disappear. The rogue will now initiate a fake system scan.
2. When the scan is finished, another security notification will appear and then click the “OK” button again.
3. Now click the red “X” at the right top of the notification to make it go away.
4. It should disappear now and your desktop should be unblocked.

The infection of Windows Express Help also results in an avalanche of security notifications which assault you like a swarm of locusts. This intensive bombing is carried out in order to scare you into believing that something is definitely wrong with your computer. The rogue fakes a false infection and then offers you a solution to your “problem” by suggesting you to buy an absolutely worthless security application. If you do so, you will provide cyber criminals with your credit card information, and they will not only slice off a part of your funds as a payment for version of Windows Express Help. They will also be able to abuse your bank account whenever they please and soon enough you will be left broke.

Take note of these security messages, which are an obvious indication of Windows Express Help’s false nature:
