Windows Advanced Security Center

Even though Windows Advanced Security Center may look as if it were an integral part of a Windows system, this malware removal application is only an instrument in the hands of despicable cyber criminals, who want nothing else from you but your money. Do not think that these schemers will steal from your assets straightforwardly, because you will be made to think that your system is being infected with tens of vicious viruses and Trojans first. Once that is established, you will be tricked into purchasing fully licensed rogue’s version, which cannot detect or remove any malignant processes and files! Needless to say, the imitated infection is just an implementation, which is used to make you believe that to have your system cleaned and malware deleted, Windows Advanced Security Center’s low-cost license is the only effective solution.

As Windows Advanced Security Center starts processing in a computer, you might notice that your system’s performance speeds decrease dramatically and your Internet connection is disabled. This is done to create an illusion that supposed malware is influencing your system or having its essential parts deleted, when in reality it only helps schemers to keep the malicious application hidden from removal. This is also ministered by blocked running of most Windows system executables and removed access to Task Manager and Registry Editor tools. As these attributes will be controlled, and you will not be able to delete Windows Advanced Security Center, the only viable solution to remove the infection might seem to be the rogue’s full version purchase. Hence, you should ignore any recommendations to pay for this useless software, proclaimed in fictitious security notifications:

Application cannot be executed. The file notepad.exe is infected.
Please activate your antivirus software.

Please click “Remove all” button to erase all infected files and protect your PC

Potential malware detected.
It is recommended to activate protection and perform a thorough system scan to remove the malware.

Malware removal is not an easy task, and you must prepare for it thoroughly. Firstly, we recommend using the guidelines to renew the Internet connection, and after that, you can also use a registration code (0W000-000B0-00T00-E0020), which will remove other virus’ symptoms. After the full control over your system is restored, you will be able to remove Windows Advanced Security Center in no time. Even though there are two different options to do so, we recommend the manual one, because installed automatic removal tools will not only delete infectious applications, which are harming your system, but will also guard it hereafter. Such software will also protect you from other Rogue.VirusDoctor group infections Windows Pro Safety Release, Windows Sleek Performance, and many others, which Windows Advanced Security Center belongs to.
