It is impossible not to notice Windows Advanced Toolkit on the computer, because the malware wants to get your money as soon as possible. To scare you into believing that you have caught infections, the rogue supposedly scans the system and produces a list of infections which are supposedly removed after the activation of the full version of Windows Advanced Toolkit. Windows Advanced Toolkit presents infections such as Rottkit.Win32.KernelBot, Trojan.Win32.Agent and others which you should ignore.

Potential malware detected.
It is recommended to activate protection and perform a thorough system scan to remove the malware.
Warning! Virus Detected
Threat detected: FTP Server

As the writers of Windows Advanced Toolkit understand that it is not enough to present infections to deceive you into thinking that the system is at risk, the rogue is designed to corrupt the processing of the system so that you cannot resist a temptation to remove infections by using the fake version of the rogue. So, the malware disables the Internet and hides Task Manager not to find the processes of the rogue. Moreover, the infection hides Registry Editor where some changes concerning certain executable files are made. Due to the presence of Windows Advanced Toolkit, some executable files cannot be launched to detect and remove the malware. If these factors are the agents for your wish to activate the rogue, then you are in big trouble.
If you activate the rogue after purchasing an activation key, you lose your money, because, first, Windows Advanced Toolkit cannot detect and delete anything, and, second, it aims to get your money and access to it; therefore, do not make a payment, but get rid of this infection.
The deletion of Windows Advanced Toolkit is much easier if you activate the rogue, but note that the activation key is now accessible to everyone at no charge.
The magic of the key lies in a renewal of Registry Editor, Task Manager, the Internet, etc. For example, Registry Editor is necessary for the manual removal of Windows Advanced Toolkit, because certain registry entries should be deleted to terminate the infection. If you want to eliminate the infection on your own, but you have a feeling that you cannot do it by yourself, remove Windows Advanced Toolkit with a removal tool.
