Windows Privacy Counsel, a clone of Windows Privacy Module, is a wicked application that pretends to maintain the system of your PC. The rogue, as well as it predecessors, belongs to Rogue.VirusDoctor family, which also includes such malware as Windows Maintenance Suite, Windows PC Aid and many others. It is unwise to trust this bogus application, because there is nothing reliable about it. Everything is simulated, and this is the only reason why you should remove Windows Privacy Counsel.
The design of the rogue is based on the design of Windows applications. You will find the same colors of Windows logo, which is seen on the Start button. You will also find that the same Windows icons are used on the scan and results tables. For example, the Home or Firewall buttons of the rogue are identical to your Operation System’s icons. Judging from the interface of the malware, it does look appealing; however, you should not make a decision about using the Windows Privacy Counsel or not only by looking at its interface.
In addition to the techniques of the malware’s deception, Windows Privacy Counsel introduces some changes into the processing of the system. The Internet connection is no longer available; executable files which are capable of detecting infections of the system are stopped as soon as you attempt to launch them. Plus, Task Manager and Registry Editor are disabled so that you cannot check what processes are running in the system and cannot remove the registry entries created by the rogue. These malfunctions should not be considered as a reason to purchase the imaginary full version of the malware. The disorders are simulated to make you think that the system is infected; hence, the best choice is to delete Windows Privacy Counsel from the system.
If you are an experienced Windows user and know how to remove Windows Privacy Counsel, you can delete it manually. First, activate the rogue with the key provided:
The malware restores the Windows tools which were lost after its creeping into the system. You can access Registry Editor and remove the mean registry entries; moreover, you have to remove all the files and processes related to the rogue. You can get rid of this infection more easily, because it does not disturb you with bogus notification any longer. See what notifications are normally presented by Windows Privacy Counsel:
Potential malware detected.
It is recommended to activate protection and perform a thorough system scan to remove the malware.
Software without a digital signature detected. Your system files are at risk. We strongly advise you to activate your protection.
Attempt to run a potentially dangerous script detected. Full system scan is highly recommended.
These are just a few of bogus notification you might receive from the malware. If you have this pest on your computer, always keep in mind that this application is simulated and that you should either ignore the messages or delete Windows Privacy Counsel at once.
If you do not want to try your luck at deleting the rogue on your own, remove Windows Privacy Counsel by using an antispyware tool. First, make sure that the antispyware is reliable and powerful enough to delete malware, and if it meets the requirements, install and launch it to start the hunt for Windows Privacy Counsel. The antispyware will not cause damage to your computer, because only the components of the rogue will be eliminated, and you will be able to use your computer as usual.
