This rogue can arrive at your doorstep via fake online malware scanners. It is only one of the many ways how rogues are distributed, but probably the most popular one. Having landed in a fake online scanner site, you are sometimes prompted to download the “reliable” security program, because the scanner has detected various infections in you computer. What is worse, sometimes you don’t even need to click anything at all, because it might be programmed so that the download of MS Recovery Tool installation file would start automatically, once you open the site. And there is a very thin line in between download and installation of the rogue.

When the program is launched, you can see that MS Recovery Tool has an attractive washed-out pink interface, which appears to be user friendly. The rogue naturally performs a fake system scan and “finds” numerous types of threats in your system. It also sends you various fake security alert messages, some of which include:

MS Recovery Tool Warning
Your PC is infected with dangerous viruses. Activate antivirus protection to prevent data loss and avoid the theft of your credit card details.
Click here to activate protection.

Just like its forerunners, MS Recovery Tool can successfully block .exe files from running. It will slow down your computer and your internet connection, to put itself in a reliable light and make you use the program in “removing” the threats. However, MS Recovery Tool will ask you to get a full real-time protection, which includes registering and paying for the license of the program.

This is the main goal of MS Recovery Tool. It wants to rip you off without leaving you anything in return. Don’t provide this rogue with your credit card information, because then you will be opening your bank account wide for the criminals to sweep it clean. If you are not sure how to remove it manually, acquire a good malware detector to terminate MS Recovery Tool once and for all.
