Windows Security Master

Have you noticed that you cannot access your desktop and there is just a strange program running on it? If it is so, you should know that it is very probable that you have Windows Security Master on your system. It is known that it has probably entered your system without your permission and you should know that even though it might seem as a decent tool, the truth is that it has just been created in order to convince you that your system is infected with malicious software. All FakeVimes family infections act very similarly, so do not be surprised if you notice Windows Defence Unit or Windows Protection Booster running on your PC. It is known that you will have to remove those rogue applications entirely, if you want to use your PC normally.

If you cannot understand why Windows Security Master is called a rogue application, you should know that it seeks to convince you that your system is infected with malicious software. You will definitely notice its features if you encounter it. One of the most noticeable ones is various fake pop-ups claiming that your system is heavily infected. In order to scare you even more, it blocks Task manager and Windows Explorer, which mean that you will not have any possibilities to erase Windows Security Master normally. Even though you might really think that all these features indicate that your computer is infected, you should still not rush to buy the license of this application. This simulated security program is not going to remove any of the threats even if there are any on your system.

We definitely not recommend purchasing the license of Windows Security Master. If you do so, cyber criminals will know all your credit card details and they might do different unfair activities behind your back. They might even use your credit card because such important information as CVV, name, surname, address, and your card’s expiration date will be revealed. In order to avoid similar applications, keep your antimalware tool enabled 24/7. If you still do not have an antimalware tool, acquire it as soon as possible.

Unfortunately, it is not very easy to remove Windows Security Master, which is why we recommend using our instructions. They will help you to download a reliable malware remover. You can also click on the question mark at the upper part of the rogue application, select Register from the menu, and then enter one of the activation keys provided below. However, this program will still stay on your system. You should definitely erase it because it might slow down your system or even do other annoying activities.
