Do you value your virtual security? Do you want your operating Windows system secured against illicit breaching? Then you should delete HackTool:Win32/Patcher. You may detect the malignant infection by such names as W32/PEPatcher, Troj/Bdoor-AZC and Virus.Win32.Oliga. The devious threat has been created by cyber criminals who, needless to say, are willing to do whatever it takes to get your money or utilize your computer for additional schemes. Unfortunately, it may be extremely difficult to delete HackTool:Win32/Patcher from the computer because it uses rootkit components to hide against detection and removal procedures.

Please continue reading to learn how you can discover the infection and what removal tactics you should exercise.
As the name of the infection suggests, HackTool:Win32/Patcher has been created to “patch”. Some of the programs which can be detected under this name are APA Vedic Astrology Software 3.2.6, AVS Audio Converter v126.96.36.1999 Patch and HDR Expose 2 64bit. If you think these programs will help you gain more privileges – you are not entirely correct.

If you do, the PC may be flooded with various security and advertisement pop-ups. This will continue until you remove HackTool:Win32/Patcher components.
Patch.exe, found under %SystemDrive%, is a malignant component which can release various pop-ups. The file can also reconfigure Windows Security Policies, hijack the virtual memory, modify Firewall, connect to remote servers, download programs and employ BHO to spy on your browsing habits and, possibly, steal personal information. Moreover, just like nbt.exe, this file implements rootkits to hide HackTool:Win32/Patcher from removal. Few more files you should delete are conhost.exe (%SystemDrive%) and svohcst.exe (%APPDATA%) because they can enable unauthorized proxy server communications and reconfigure Windows physical memory protection.
If you want to run your operating Windows system without any security risks, you should remove HackTool:Win32/Patcher.
