What can be more annoying than rogue antispyware programs that keep on popping up every now and then? Windows PRO Scanner is the latest addition to the Rogue.VirusDoctor family of computer malware that has been plaguing the user computers worldwide for some time now. Windows PRO Scanner is a direct clone of Windows Protection Master, Windows Functionality Checker, Windows Smart Warden and other similar rogues that enter your system with intention to rip you off. Even though Windows PRO Scanner pretends to be a reliable antivirus program the only thing it wants is your money, and it will destroy your system if you just sit back and do nothing about it.
Just like its predecessors Windows PRO Scanner is known to block Windows Task Manager and the Registry editor. The rogue does it because users who are familiar with how their system works can get rid of the rogue by applying certain changes to the Registry and by killing rogue-related processes on Windows Task Manager. Hence Windows PRO Scanner blocks the user from utilizing various system tools that would help him or her get rid of the rogue. However, this is not the only symptom of Windows PRO Scanner.
Just like any other rogue, right when it is installed and ready to run, Windows PRO Scanner performs a fake system scan and “detects” a lot of viruses and Trojans in your computer that supposedly are infecting your system. Nevertheless, even though Trojan-DDoS.Win32 and Trojan-Downloader.Win32.Agent are real infections they are not present in your system. Windows PRO Scanner only wants you to think that you are infected so that you could click the “Activate Ultimate Protection” button and pay for the useless program.
You should also ignore the following fake security alerts, coming from Windows PRO Scanner:
Attempt to run a potentially dangerous script detected.
Full system is highly recommended.
Warning! Virus Detected
Threat detected: FTP Server
Infected file: C:\Windows\System32\dllcache\wmploc.dll
Software without a digital signature detected.
Your system files are at risk. We strongly advise you to activate your protection.
The errors are poorly constructed which add up to the overall impression that Windows PRO Scanner is nothing but a scam. You have to remove Windows PRO Scanner from your computer before it became too slow to operate. If you cannot do it manually, get yourself a powerful security tool that will delete Windows PRO Scanner automatically and your computer will go back to normal.
