Windows Care Taker

Windows Care Taker is nothing but a scam so you should not get hooked on this fraudulent program which seeks to steal your money. You can claim that this fake application protects your system very carefully; however, Windows Care Taker only makes you believe that it does it that way.

Windows Care Taker might get on your computer via Trojans which might be caught when opening a suspicious email attachment, running simulated online scan or performing other action on the Internet. Once the rogue is in the system, it will modify the registry so that the malware starts running when you log on to Windows. Moreover, Windows Care Taker will continually pop up fake messages claiming that your system is infected with simulated viruses, which might be harmless files after all. The simulated scan results might leave you in a state of uncertainty about further actions. In such a case, the only possible action is to remove this obnoxious and fabricated malware from the system.

It is up to you how you choose to delete Windows Care Taker. The fact is that it must be removed from the system if you do not want to expose your financial data while paying the criminals for this fake application. Let a legitimate application scan your system, which is strongly recommended, and get rid of Windows Care Taker. You could also refer to the manual removal guidance to get rid of this malware.


If you are dealing with Windows Care Taker, you might want to jot this code down:


This activation key is there to help you with the Windows Care Taker's removal. Click the "Activate Ultimate Protection" button on the rogue's interface and enter the key into the rogue's registration box. It will only be in effect for a few minutes, but even these few minutes are gold when you are dealing with Windows Care Taker.

The reason why it is the best to register Windows Care Taker before removing it, is that this rogue shares its capabilities with other versions of the same infection - Windows Custodian Utility, Windows Shielding Utility, Windows Warding System and others. Just like its predecessors Windows Care Taker blocks your Registry Editor and Windows Task Manager to prevent you from removing the rogue on your own. Then it denies you the Internet access, thus successfully cutting you off from the means of automatic rogue removal as well.

Naturally, Windows Care Taker makes it seem as though all of this erratic behavior is caused other "viruses" and so it lets you know about them in the form of false security notices:

System data security is at risk.
To prevent potential PC errors, run a full system scan.

Firewall has blocked a program from accessing the Internet
C:\program files\internet explorer\iexplore.exe
is suspected to have infected your PC. This type of virus intercepts entered data and transmits them to a remote server.

Warning! Identity theft attempt Detected
Hidden connection IP:
Target: Your passwords for sites

All of that is absolute rubbish, and you need to ignore these messages point blank. Once you register Windows Care Taker with the code provided above, do not waste any second and find a computer safety application that will help you to remove Windows Care Taker for good. Keep in mind, that the longer you allow this rogue to remain your computer, the more damage your system receives.
