Windows Troubles Solver

There is a new rogue antispyware application from the family of the Fake Microsoft Security Essentials threats, called Windows Troubles Solver. The ironic thing is that it would never be able to solve your problems. This rogue will only cause you a lot of annoying problems. The other rogues which came before this one include Windows Risks Preventions, Windows Profile System, Windows Precautions Center and so on. The abundance of rogues with the very same purpose suggests that the creators of malicious applications are very eager to achieve their goals.

However, they are not so creative and diligent in revamping their rogues. Windows Troubles Solver has exactly the same interface as its predecessors and so the users who have encountered a rogue from this family before, will sure be able to recognize the malicious nature of Windows Troubles Solver immediately. Windows Troubles Solver only pretends to be an antivirus program. Despite its attractive interface it has nothing to do with safeguarding your computer and it is already obvious by the way it gets into your computer.

Windows Troubles Solver has a wide distribution system which enters even user’s blogging space on the Internet if the access to blogs and journal posts is left public. For example, there are a lot of spam generated messages and comments being posted at blog entries and most of these comments have links which, once clicked onto, redirect the user to a site which hosts Windows Troubles Solver download file or a Trojan which downloads the rogue later. One Trojan infection is enough allow Windows Troubles Solver enter your system without any difficulties.

When Windows Troubles Solver is installed it behaves just like any other rogue antispyware application out there – it starts harassing the user with an endless stream of fake security alert messages which are generated in order to scare the user into believing that he has been infected with serious parasites. The only infection in the computer, however, is Windows Troubles Solver so the user must not follow instructions of such pop-up messages as:

Microsoft Security Essentials Alert
Potential Threat Details
Microsoft Security Essentials detected potential threats that might compromise your private or damage your computer. Your access to these items may be suspended until you take an action. Click 'show details' to learn more.

Windows Troubles Solver also performs a fake system scan, which also should also convince the user that there is not other way out of the problem – he simply must purchase the full version of the program. However, that is exactly what the rogue is trying to achieve, because by purchasing the license the user also reveals his credit card number and the CVV2 code to the cyber criminals. With this information exposed the third parties can access the user’s personal bank account anytime and eventually the account will be left absolutely empty.

Therefore, it is only obvious that the user must remove Windows Troubles Solver as soon as possible, before the problem has gone out of hands. In case the user is not confident of his computing skills and is not sure how to destroy Windows Troubles Solver manually, he can always acquire a reliable antispyware tool, which will swiftly take care of the rogue for him.
