Windows Efficiency Console

If you have not taken the necessary security measures to guard your operating system, then Windows Efficiency Console could enter your personal computer soon enough. This application may seem as an authentic malware removal program at first; however, it is just another rogue which will use deception to trick money out of you. The clandestine Windows infection can be dropped onto the PC by active malware, which means that other threats could be running, using drive-by download scams and truly malicious online scanners. If you land on a site representing a fictitious scanner you will be informed that tens if not hundreds of threats need to be deleted from the PC. Even though there are legal online scanners out there, this is not one of them. If you have already downloaded the malicious application onto your computer, all you can do is get it deleted. Continue reading to learn how to remove Windows Efficiency Console.

If you checked the interfaces of Windows Activity Booster, Windows Warding Module, Windows Active Hotspot and other recently reported rogues, you would be seriously surprised. Why? It is because all of these fake AVs share the same interface as Windows Efficiency Console. These malicious applications all belong to the Rogue.VirusDoctor family and they all have been noticed to run in the same manner. The rogue’s components can decrease operative speeds, block the running of executable files, remove your access to the Internet and aggravate any removal operations. The schemers behind the fictitious antivirus are interested in keeping it running on the computer for as long as possible, and so misleading information will be introduced to you. Fictitious scanner reports, warnings, removal recommendations and alerts will be presented to you:

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.

Activate Windows Efficiency Console to get ultimate protection against Identity Theft, Viruses, Malware and other threats!

Please ignore these ridiculous warnings because they do not represent the reality. Unfortunately, many computer users targeted by cyber criminals fail to understand this and eventually purchase the promoted full version of Windows Efficiency Console. This product is completely worthless because it cannot help you find and delete malicious programs, or ensure reliable Windows protection. In fact, it is important to remove this allegedly reliable malware remover, even if you have purchased its full version. We do not recommend that you delete Windows Efficiency Console manually because this task is extremely difficult even to experienced Windows users. Alternatively, you can install automatic malware detection and removal software, and we have prepared the instructions which will assist you with the installation of a reliable tool.
