Windows Test Master

The only thing that Windows Test Master masters is the plague and devastation of your operating system. This program is a rogue antispyware application which pretends to be a legitimate antivirus program. It comes from the Fake Microsoft Security Essentials family which includes such notorious rogues as Windows Debugging Center, Windows Proofness Guarantor, Windows Salvor Tool and many more.

Just like its predecessors Windows Test Master shares the same graphic user's interface, although it seems to be tweaked a little bit, because the icon at the very corner of the rogue's window differs from the ones which have come before. However, other than that Windows Test Master is absolutely identical to the Fake Microsoft Security Essentials rogues which have come before. It even infects your system in exactly the same way as well.

Windows Test Master spreads with a Trojan infection. For example, it can be hiding behind a link in a comment posted to your blog post, or behind a picture that you are searching on the Internet. You can never know really, so sometimes Windows Test Master slithers into your system even if you are being cautious. When you get that Trojan infection in your computer it sends you this message:

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.

With this message you are informed that you have been infected with Unknown Win32/Trojan. You are then urged to perform a quick system scan after which you are given the "exact" name of the Trojan: Trojan.Horse.Win32.PAV.64.a. Afterwards, the infection urges you to download Windows Test Master with this message:

Threat prevention solution found
Security system analysis has revealed critical file system vulnerability caused by severe malware attacks.
Risk of system files infection:
The detected vulnerability may result in unauthorized access to private information and hard drive data with a serious possibility of irreversible data loss and unstable PC performance. To remove the malware please run a full system scan. Press 'OK' to install the software necessary to initiate system files check. To complete the installation process please reboot your computer.

As you can see, the infection treats Windows Test Master as the best solution to your problems. If you click the "OK" button you will end up downloading this rogue onto your system. Then Windows Test Master will install itself and will perform certain changes in your system which will allow it to load along with your Windows. And then you will experience the real onslaught of this attack with loads of fake security messages and the fake system scan, which shows you devastating results, and which are nothing but blatant lies.

Everything is generated in order to push you into paying for something which does not exist - namely antivirus protection. Remove Windows Test Master before it is too late and save yourself from an obvious money theft. If you don't know how to do it manually, then acquire a good automatic rogue removal tool, but just make sure that you get rid of Windows Test Master for good.
