Windows Accelerator Pro

Do you think that Windows Accelerator Pro is an application which could help you ensure the protection of your operating Windows system? We can assure you that this is not the tool which has the ability to track or delete malicious infections. Therefore, you should not even think about installing it onto the PC. Unfortunately, in most cases this fictitious malware remover gets inside without any of your knowledge because it is managed by cyber criminals who know all of the tricks to distribute dangerous computer infections. If you have already discovered the threat scanning your personal computer, it must have entered using one of the many security vulnerabilities that are linked to your operating system. If you have not installed it via a misleading online scanner, it might have been let in by another existing infection which you will need to delete as well. This is why in most cases Windows Accelerator Pro removal is highly complicated.

Rogue.VirusDoctor is the family to which the malicious rogue belongs to. Windows Efficiency Console, Windows Activity Booster and Windows Warding Module are a few of the latest rogues which belong to it as well. It is notable that all of these infections use the same interfaces and have the same objective – to trick you into paying money for a supposedly authentic malware detection and removal tool. The scanner which keeps warning you about allegedly attacking threats is meant to scare you into thinking that you will lose personal data and that your operating system will be damaged if you do not delete these threats. Since the infection can block the running of most executable files, it is likely that you will have problems connecting to the Internet, running Windows utilities (e.g. Task Manager) or having the rogue anti-spyware deleted manually. This is supped to push you into believing that the only option you have is the full version of Windows Accelerator Pro. As you may have discovered already, this is reinforced by various misleading recommendations and pop-ups:

To protect your computer, make sure the three security essentials are On.
If the settings are not On, follow our recommendations. […]
Please activate to get ultimate protection.

Trojan activity detected. System integrity at risk.
Full system scan is highly recommended.

If you choose to activate the allegedly beneficial full version of the malicious Windows Accelerator Pro, you will expose your own financial security. By entering your credit card data you will be sharing it with mischievous cyber criminals who could use it in the future. Do you want criminals to find out where you live or what your credit card security number is? Then do not enter this information and rush to delete the clandestine rogue. You must proceed with the removal even if you have already completed the requested transaction, in which case you should inform your bank as well.

Are you ready to have Windows Accelerator Pro deleted? We are here to lead you to the successful removal of this fictitious security application. The main obstacle you will face when dealing with the threat is its ability to partially paralyze the system. The manual removal of this rogue is extremely complicated, and so it is recommended to have automatic malware removal software installed. If you follow the guide presented below, you will have the threat deleted in no time.
