Windows Performance Catalyst

It can be easy to mistaken Windows Performance Catalyst for a genuine security tool. This rubbish rogue antispyware application was designed by criminal developers only out to rip consumers off. Windows Performance Catalyst will not be able to protect your PC against any known or unknown threats, and will cause more damage to the PC than offer any help.

Windows Performance Catalyst enters the system surreptitiously and will hide its presence from the system until such time that it is ready to start its attack against the system. This rogue will start its attack against the system by initiating a fake security scan of the system. This fake scan will inform the user that his PC is being attacked by numerous crippling online threats. These supposed threats can only be removed once the user pays for an Windows Performance Catalyst license.

Users are urged never to pay for any Windows Performance Catalyst product, and to never believe any correspondence received from Windows Performance Catalyst. In fact they are advised to simply get rid of Windows Performance Catalyst with the help of a powerful security tool which will help them to restore their systems’ security and protect their PCs against similar attacks in future.


Windows Performance Catalyst is a new clone from the Rogue.VirusDoctor family, which includes such rogue antispywares as Windows Protection Master, AV Security Essentials and Smart Anti-Malware Protection. If you have already encountered rogues from this family, you will notice that the interface of Windows Performance Catalyst is exactly the same as of other clones. The malware slows down your operating system, causes networking dysfunction and could control access to your Windows components, or terminate any executable files.

Do not believe the false scan reports, filled with such threats as Trojans, worms and illegal monitors, and remove Windows Performance Catalyst immediately! Most importantly, do not disclose any personal information, as hijackers will definitely use it for a bigger profit. In case you have already shared such sensitive information, contact your bank and report the fraud. Do not wait and act now, by powering up a legitimate antispyware and removing Windows Performance Catalyst from your system for good
