MS Removal Tool

MS Removal Tool Description

ScreenshotMS Removal Tool is the newest rogue anti-virus application on the block, and this rogue threat can still slip under the detection methods of many types of anti-malware programs. Don’t confuse this fraudulent MS Removal Tool with the real Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool – the latter will always come with Windows, free of charge. In between bouts of asking for your money, MS Removal Tool will block a wide range of programs and may also hijack your web browser. Deleting MS Removal Tool is a serious priority because this rogue application can interfere with almost every action you take on the infected PC.

Telltale Signs of the Fake MS Removal Tool

This rogue infection version of MS Removal Tool can be easily distinguished from the real MS Removal Tool by a number of signs:
  • MS Removal Tool will exhibit the appearance and many obvious behaviors known from the rogue program System Tool, which it copies to a large extent. This includes the pink-themed interface and the alteration of your desktop background to a threatening message about spyware or other malware infections.
  • This fake MS Removal Tool will also request money in exchange for registration of the program. The real MS Removal Tool is completely free and doesn’t require registration. If you give your money or personal information to the fake MS Removal Tool, you’re giving those things away to criminals.
  • Infection by MS Removal Tool will coincide with dysfunctional behavior in many different programs. Anti-virus scanners may refuse to run, the Windows Task Manager may spontaneously shut down and other programs may crash with unusual error messages.

    Microsoft Security Essentials will also fail to run, potentially with a fake error message about an infected root file.

All error messages and warnings created by MS Removal Tool have no basis in reality as far as your PC’s health goes. Here are some of the messages you might see:

Dealing with MS Removal Tool Attacks

MS Removal Tool has been reported to spread through insecure files on P2P networks, freeware websites and pirated software websites. Being careful to verify the safety of suspicious files before running them will help you avoid the MS Removal Tool bug.

Although MS Removal Tool is based off of the older rogue threat System Tool, MS Removal Tool has had sufficient alterations to avoid being detected by many anti-malware programs. Keeping your anti-malware software up to date is a critical step in detecting MS Removal Tool. Having multiple well-known brands of security software will also give you security through redundancy that may just be what you need to delete MS Removal Tool.

You probably won’t be able to access most of the necessary software for removing MS Removal Tool while this rogue program is active. Using Safe Mode will let you scan your computer without MS Removal Tool getting in the way. Safe Mode is available for all Windows systems by tapping F8 during the booting process and makes cleaning out MS Removal Tool and otherrogue security applications such as Live Security Platinum and Security Shield 2012 a relatively simple task.

  • Luke Ranemur says:

    I hate those sniveling little pests, parasites, leeches, leeching off our hard earned lifestyles like mosquitoes. If anyone has been wronged by these cold-hearted BASTARDS, spread the word far, tell these hackers, scammers, and downright liars that they\’ve gone too far, that they crossed the line. Justice must be served, and who better to serve it than the men and women that have been wronged. Give them pain and misery, they don\’t deserve forgiveness only HATRED.

    I too have this virus and can do nothing at all with the computer. All suggestions I have found have failed-including unticking the LAN box on Internet Options/ Connections-it wasn’t ticked anyway! I don’t know if it’s something I’ve done but Windows will not now operate at all-it says a system configuration file has been deleted or become corrupt. I don’t have the windows disk-the computer is second hand. Is there anything I can do now?

  • Fay says:
