Windows Risk Minimizer
Windows Risk Minimizer is a stealthy type of malware that will try to take as much money as you will be willing to give. It will try to trick you into believing its legitimacy, but it depends on you only whether you will fall for the despicable hoax or not. If you recognize the name, and the malware is active in your system, do not wait, power up a legitimate antispyware and remove Windows Risk Minimizer at once!
Hijackers constantly detect internet security loopholes and use them to attack more and more PC users. And you can never be too careful with how you operate around the virtual space. Be aware of spam emails, online scanners and other suspicious applications that can instigate a malware setup. Once in the computer, Windows Risk Minimizer is unlikely to create data damage and delete your personal files, as all of its energy is focused into imitating a serious infection. A fake scanner will warn you of numerous worms, viruses and other alien objects in the system, and then will not stop sending you threatening notifications, until you remove Windows Risk Minimizer or buy the rogue product. By all means, you should NOT spend your money for something this useless. First of all, the software you buy will solve a fake problem, and you will be throwing your money into thin air. Secondly, you will be revealing highly sensitive information that hackers will be able to use to obtain even more money from you!
It is highly recommended you delete Windows Risk Minimizer from your operating system, before it does more harm to you and your PC. Remove the infection with a trusted antispyware that will get rid of the rogue and will protect you from Windows Risk Minimizer, its clones and other malware in the future!
Windows Risk Minimizer belongs to the Rogue.VirusDoctor family, which has produced such fake antispywares as Windows Managing System, Windows Safety Tweaker or Windows Personal Doctor. The malicious application has the same interface and acts exactly like its predecessors, bombarding you with fake security alerts and notifications, which you can see bellow, blocking executable files from running, and restricting access to Windows Tools (Registry Editor and Task Manager), which assists in hiding infectious processes, and causes difficulties to detect and remove Windows Risk Minimizer.
We recommend to use the registration key listed bellow, as this will not only remove infection’s symptoms, but will also help you to remove Windows Risk Minimizer from your system much quicker, as you will regain access to Windows components and will be able to run AV tools’ .exe files.
Note: this will NOT remove Windows Risk Minimizer from your Windows system, and you will still need to use a legitimate tool to do it for you.
